New Weeding Tool

Most weeders cut at weed roots, often leaving holes. However, a long-handled tool called the Precision Weeder helps gardeners remove weeds without damaging nearby plants. Its small V-shaped edge resembles an asparagus knife and works with similar surgical efficiency. This tool lets you reach in and cut off or pry up deep-rooted weeds without disturbing the soil or leaving large holes in ground covers, flower beds, or lawns.

The Precision Weeder's tempered steel blade, measuring just under 1-1/2 inches long, fits between tightly spaced plants and slides easily into the soil. The blade's rear tips make weed-pulling easy. A 42-inch-long hardwood handle extends to hard-to-reach places, and the T-bar grip also provides extra leverage. Originally intended for weeding perennial beds, the tool is effective at removing tough lawn weeds, too.

The Precision Weeder costs $22 including shipping, from Creative Enterprises, Inc., Box 3452, Idaho Falls, ID 83403; (800) 388-4539. The Web site is for more information via the Internet.
