Dutch Hoes/ Scuffle Hoe
scufflehoe.gif (7719 bytes)Scuffle hoes are used much as you would a shuffleboard mallet. They are pushed ahead of you to cut the tops of annual weeds (perennial weeds must be dug and removed) rather than chopping them as you would with a garden hoe.

Pick and Mattock
The pick/mattock is for serious digging through hard packed soil and clay. The pick (pointed end) or the mattock (wide blade) is used to chop down into the soil, and the cradle design of the head can then be used as a lever to break open the soil, allowing it to be shoveled more easily.
