I don't care for gardening. I bought this tool because the dandelions were overtaking my parking strip.
This tool was much easier to use than I had expected. The weeds came out with relative ease. And I must admit, there is something strangely satisfying about the "pop" the weeds make as they are dislodged from their roots. It was a bit addictive. And I spent much longer waging my weed war than I had expected as I wanted to hear that pop over and over again. It was also pleasing that this tool made it easy to tackle just the weeds, leaving the surrounding grass intact. Soon my parking strip will be the envy of the block!
If you are against the use of bee-killing and cancer inducing pesticides and weed killers in your home environment, this tool is for you! While it is a bit smaller than other manufacturers similar tools, it is well-made and does the job well.
It was very easy to use with dry soil rather than wet and moist soil ( like just after the rain). It works wonderful to remove dandelion from the root.
Oh my goodness! This was the least expensive weeder I could find on Amazon, so I took a gamble, to my utmost surprise, it's the BEST weeder I've ever seen or used! It's a great size, I'm certain this is one of the most durable ones on the market, but the others are way higher priced. The bend on it behaves similar to a can opener.Highly recommend it.
If you have not tried this style but have been using the straight stick style - or any that are a little less straight. It is all a matter of preference what you choose but I like this style because of the nice grip I get on the handle and the deep bend is much like a mini pry bar when pulling out the bigger clumpy weeds that are rooted to hard soil.
