Ploskorez weeding hoe from Russia Tip used for fine weeding in tight spaces Sharp flat edge used for open areas

What is the best use of this unusual Garden Hoe?

When a garden is planted in rows, there are two types of weeding chores: Between-the-Rows and Between-the-Plants. These two chores are also called "inter-row" and "inter-plant" weeding by the farm equipment companies make very different machines for these very different tasks.

In a small garden (or in garden beds) the Ploskorez hoe will work fine for both tasks. The long handle can easily be cut shorter to make a one-handed version for use in raised beds or in flower gardens.

But in a large garden, this stainless steel hoe is best used only for weeding between the plants. Weeding between the rows can be accomplished faster with our wide grape hoe or with the Hoss wheel cultivator.

This type of hoe is usually called detail weeder. It can be used for the same weeding tasks as the Cobra Head weeder, and as Eliot Coleman's wire weeder. The general design of the Ploskorez Swage is very similar to the US made "Hooke and Crooke" hoe.

Detail weeders like this are ONLY for precision weeding. They are NOT for hacking at sod, chopping big weeds, or tilling the soil.

How to use the Ploskorez hoe in the garden

The Swage hoe came to England a few years ago. It's also been popular in Germany, France, and Ireland. The short British video shows the Ploskorez hoe being used to weed an overgrown area, then loosen and smooth the soil in preparation for seeding...


The Ploskorez was created in Russia many years ago. This video shows the older black steel version, but it is used the same as the modern stainless steel one. Lots of different tasks are shown, plus views of rural Russian homesteads at the very end.
