An architecture is presented that provides a combination tool device or grading device designed for easily and efficiently grading materials used in construction. The combination tool device comprises a handle having a first end and a second end. The combination tool device also comprises a rake and a hoe secured to the first end of the handle. The rake and the hoe are secured on opposite sides of the first end of the handle such that a user can use the shovel-like hoe for pushing and pulling materials around and then turn the handle 180 degrees to use the rake for smoothing materials. Furthermore, when the combination tool device is oriented in an upright position with the second end in the air, the rake and the hoe are positioned to engage the ground and allow the combination tool device to stand upright without support.
