Weeding in the Sidewalk Cracks

By stetchworth
January 8, 2012

I don't like to see grass or weeds growing in the cracks of my sidewalk and I don't use chemicals in my yard. I found this weeding tool at Walmart for less than $4.00 and it pulls them out by their roots and if you use it after a rainfall it is even easier to get them out.

That is a serious looking tool! I can see using it to edge my creeping grass at the patio edge.
Thanks!

We have one and attached to a long broom handle so you can do it while standing. We use ours to clean between the cracks of the decking boards to get rid of any tree debris. The decking boards are quite tight together and this tool works perfect to run down between them.

I love this tool! I call it the cracker, but it's called a weed knife. Can be found in garden tool section of some stores, not completely uncommon.
