About the Pick Axe

The Pick Axe, also known as a "Pick" and commonly spelled "Pickaxe" or "Pickax", is a hand tool mostly used in landscaping. The pickaxe nowadays typically has two ends. The pointed end is used for rocky or concrete surfaces. The second end is flat and mainly used for prying. With such a heavy head and a small contact point at the tip of the head, the tool becomes a very effective tool for hardened, rocky, and concrete surfaces.

The pick axe is a very useful tool around the house. Your landscaping projects will be much easier if you use this tool. Digging through the harder surfaces in your garden can be bearable if you use the right tool.
