Tool or Gardening Product

Weed Wiper
Weed wipers are devices used to wipe, rather than spray, an herbicide directly onto a weed's foliage. This minimizes environmental concerns with use of weed killers and avoids damage to adjacent desirable plants that might be affected by even a very careful spray application. You can purchase these products at some garden centers and online. Find directions for an easy-to-build homemade version here:
