Description

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, weeds are defined as plants that grow where they are not valued and tend to overgrow, choking out the desired plants. By this definition, unless you have intentionally grown dandelions for consumption or aesthetic purposes, then they are considered weeds. The first thing I noticed was the quality. With a wooden handle and a neat ‘Newman and Cole’ engraving, this weed brush felt thoughtfully designed from the start. The bristles are seriously heavy duty, made from wire. The working length is 120 cm, so it can be used fully from standing. My first impressions of the Fiskars Xact Weed Puller were very good. It’s the most pricey of the tools I tested, yet it still remains very affordable.

Garden expert Erin Hynes, a former horticulture extension agent and author of numerous garden books, recommends that you invest in a few different types of hand garden tools for different tasks. "That lets you choose the best tool for the weed problem. Have a lot of weed seedlings popping in an unplanted bed? A Dutch hoe lets you clear a large, open area. But if you want to pop dandelions out of the lawn, you want a tool that cuts through the sod, like a dandelion weeder or a hori garden knife.If you’re weeding close to the tender stems of flowers and vegetables, grab a tool designed for precise work, like a Cape Cod weeder." Dandelion is considered a bothersome weed that needs to be eradicated from the lawn or garden. They invade space and compete for nutrients with other desired plants. Also, unlike other garden variety plants, dandelions have strong taproots that can grow up to 15 feet in optimum conditions. The taproots allow the plant to get nutrients from deep in the soil, even in dry seasons or when the shoot has been cut. Almost everyone can identify a dandelion. It’s an omnipresent plant with a long green stem, bright yellow flower top, and beautiful quaint seeds. The beauty of the seed is so mesmerizing that in 2019, director Jill Culton featured a dandelion flower in one of the most famous scenes of the animated movie “Abominable”.These weeding tools are exactly what they sound like. They are long-handled tools with a small, stiff brush on the end. They can be used to get at weeds between paving and in other narrow areas. The unique plunger does double duty, also aerating the soil for a healthy lawn after clearing weeds. The 40-inch stand-up weed puller is perfect for lifting pesky weeds without chemicals. Clearing weeds and moss from between paving without kneeling isn’t always possible, but the Newman and Cole Long Handle Weed Brush makes it a lot easier. It’s been designed for clearing smaller weeds from patios, while it can be used from a standing position which makes it ideal for those with limited mobility. Below, we’ve compiled a list of some factors that can help you narrow these options to the best dandelion tools for the way you work. Handle Length

Then if you’re talking hand weed pullers then less still. Basically, you want one of the top models for weeds like Dandelion and Thistles. If it’s smaller plants in grass like daises then you definitely want to opt for the Wilkinson Sword. For uprooting the weed, simply grasp the two steel claws into the root zone area of the weed by your foot, spin the handle, and lift the weeds, including the roots as well. This small perennial wildflower looks similar to the common dandelion. The weed has green leaves with toothed lobes and red veins. And a fluffy seed head with brown seeds. The dandelion blooms from May to August with a familiar yellow flower. Japanese Dandelion (Taraxacum Japonicum) Having the right tool for the job can make all the difference. A good weeding tool will make the job of removing weeds much easier. The Fiskars Ergo Scratch garden weeder is my 1st choice for pulling dandelions, many other pesky weeds from the lawn, thistles as well as other invasive weeds. I love its lightweight, just 6.7 ounces, therefore can easily be used by old, young and everybody in between.

Claw weeders and weeding knives are the most effective weeding tools because they can remove the whole weed and its root . There are several different types of weeding tool, some of better suited to certain job than others. Therefore, depending on the terrain you have in your garden, you may even find that you want to have more than one weeding tool in the armoury. Hand-Weeding Knives Taraxacum officinale is an edible weed. You can eat every part of the common dandelion apart from the seeds. And some people use the root to make dandelion tea. Horned Dandelion (Taraxacum ceratophorum)

Rake heads help eliminate clusters of weeds that have been growing in a neglected area for a long time. Among the most common organic approaches for killing Dandelions, we can mention burning the weeds with a propane torch, with boiling water, or choking them with cooking oil. For lifting the weeds, simply press the spike into the center of the weeds/grass, push your leg on the pedal to take it deep into the soil, and then spin your hand to pull out the weed and roots from the ground. Due to the diameter of the base, it’s only really suitable for larger weeds, as small weeds won’t get caught easily in the puller’s jaws. You’ll also struggle to use it on ground that’s too hard – but when it rains, or the ground is damp from dew, the blades should be easy to push into the earth.

Alternatively, short-handled weeding tools are more precise and better for working in tighter areas . They’re easier to control, but you’ll need to kneel or bend when using one. For removing weeds from between paving slabs, the best weeding tool will be a sharp short-handled paving knife. Choose a paving knife with a hooked end to successfully get under weeds. Unlike the Xact weed puller, this weeding tool has been designed for patios. It has a hooked end that allows you to hook onto weeds growing between paving slabs, as well as a blade on the other side for precise removal. Gardena claims that this weeder can be used to remove grass, moss and weeds, leaving behind clean paving joints. Dandelion greens are a good source of calcium and vitamin K, which play a crucial role in bone health ( 33, 34). Grampa’s long-handle dandelion puller has a 4-claw design, made with powder-coated metal that can remove weeds from most soil types, whether good watering or rainfall. Please remember it isn’t good enough for extremely hard clay or hilly surfaces. What I like at this product is the fact that it pulls the weeds with minimal soil removal. Therefore, it doesn’t leave some large holes in your lawn as other products from its class do.
