A gardening weeding fork is a gardening tool used primarily for weed removal. Unlike shovels and trowels, weeding forks cleanly remove plants from the soil at the roots without digging up large clumps of dirt. In addition to being an especially good tool for removing weeds, weeding forks are also useful for harvesting root plants like potatoes and onions, transplanting plants safely, and tilling compost or other additives into the soil. Weeding forks can also be used to loosen hard or clause dirt in preparation for mixing in peat moss or other materials that improve the quality of the soil.
