Plumbing Tools for Gardening

Let's think outside of the box. I love using things for other than their original purpose. A pipe cutter can be used to cut branches just as easily as it cuts pipes into pieces.

I like this application. I will bet if I dig around, I'll find one in my husbands' tool stash.

One tool I have used often is the drywall saw which works well to cut back a tightly compacted root ball.

Thanks for a good idea. Thumbs up

I use a pipe cutter to make clean cuts of tough bamboo. On the theory that the best you can afford is the best bargain, I bought the GARTOL Pipe and Tube Cutter from Amazon. In the photo, it doesn't look much different from the run of the mill cheapies, but it is a beast.

This pipe cutter is a great idea! I have loppers, but a lot of time those long handles are just too awkward to get in where I need to go. Pipe cutter would work great for pruning/thinning shrubs/roses.
Along the same lines, I keep a few putty knives around for weeding. They are cheap ($1 at Dollar Tree), durable, and great for scraping out weeds and even digging small planting holes and making furrows.
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

I use my wire cutters for pruning my bonsai trees or for cutting thin branches and a small hacksaw for thicker ones.

I am sure that your idea to become a plumber will be very useful for the garden because today this profession is also popular and relevant as a programmer and roboticist because many homes and businesses need a good and experienced water conductor, and if he took courses at https://www.vocationaltraining... then this is generally great because this place explains a lot of this topic. The explanation of all the details is quite interesting and I really like it
