Pliers for Your Garden

By weeds
March 23, 2013

Use regular pliers to pull weeds that have long tap roots, especially sticky ones like briars. Put the nose of the pliers right at ground level to grab the weeds. I find them very good to pull the many baby oak trees that fill my garden each year.

pliers, bread knives ...my favorite gardening tool has become my saws-all or reciprocating saw. it is handy for cutting through tree roots where I want holes for shade plants and trimming out the odd branch.

mm, an interesting thread would be what tools we have re-purposed for gardening chores - any takers?

Well, I don't know about "re-purposing," but I got the cutest little battery powered chain saw for trimming branches that are just a bit too big for my loppers. Only has about a 6 inch bar, but it is really a nifty tool!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
