Recently purchased a nisaku stainless steel weeder with a four foot handle. Waiting on spring to arrive here so I can give it a try, hopefully it will be a big help in the garden.

Not sure if this website will work, it has a sharp blade with a four foot handle, likely would not work for a tall person. Saw a demo of it where it handled tough weeds in the garden easily.

Looks like it is designed to scrap weeds on concrete, pavement and bricks?

You can use it more ways than one. I also want to use it on our long cement driveway where weeds pop up in the seams. This tool sold out fast where I ordered it so hoping it works well.

Used the tool yesterday to clean up the weeds growing thru the construction cracks on our long cement driveway. Made quick work of cleaning them up, it rained here recently so this was like slicing thru butter, so glad I purchased it just for this job alone.

Good report @daylilydreams I have a cement scraper used to scrape blobs off new concrete. IDK HOW in the world I ended up with that tool? But it looks similar to that. I might try that out. I hate the weeds in the cement cracks in the street. (we have cement streets)

I know what you mean it just looks bad with the weeds, give it a try it might just do the job.

The roots of those weeds go deep into the crevices! They are really hard to pull! If I cut them off ot will look good for a short time only to spring up again. I don't like using Roundup but I have a bottle just for using in the street. Someone said Round Up only lasts 7 months in storage? Don't believe them. I have used the same little spray/foam bottle with success for 2 years.
