Soil Scoop

Toni’s Tool Tips | Soil Scoop

This tool is my go-to for most chores in the garden because it replaces numerous other tools. And as far as I’m concerned, learning to simplify is one of the biggest goals of adaptive gardening.

This Soil Scoop replaces most trowels because it has a much larger head than the standard trowel, so you can scoop more dirt with less energy. And the serrated edges are great for opening bags of compost or mulch. It’s perfect for digging holes, cutting roots, weeding and transferring soil. It’s even great for carving pumpkins.

Last but not least, while the original Soil Scoop came with a wooden handle, I recommend buying one with the colorful recycled comfort grip. This makes it more comfortable to use and easier to find should it get covered up with debris.
