Betterware Weeding Tool
Advantages: Makes the job easier
Disadvantages: None really
We all know that the peril of any garden are copious amounts of weeds ruining what otherwise would be a lovely patio or plant area. Unfortunately, in my house i always seem to be the one asked to sort this problem (i think it is because it requires very little thought and a very low level of intelligence)! Fortunately, i have never had to take on the damned weed with just myself and a pair of gloves, as my parents have this product in their garden toolshed. It ticks all the boxes for a good value product - it is cheap, it is simple, and it works - all you need.
The tool itself isn't all that long, it is about 20cm i believe, which is just over 7 inches for those of an imperial disposition. It then has a right angled blade with an orange plastic handle, which makes it easier to grip, on the end. The handle is a decent size, in that it allows you to grip the product well and you never feel like you are going to lose your fingers while doing it.
To be honest, it is very little to look at, but the key thing is the width of the blade - it's tiny. This ensures that you can really get into those horrible little spaces, which means you can get right to the base of the weed, meaning that it will not grow back as quickly - which is always a bonus! It makes it easier and you have to do it less!
In terms of how it works, very well generally. From time to time you do find a weed which is tricky and it does get stuck - but this is quite a rarity. I also believe that there are longer versions of the product which would probably attack these bigger weeds better, so it is tailored to your needs really, and you can have whatever you want.
My parents bought ours a number of years ago but having a quick scan round on the net it seems that they are available for just a few pounds - great value.
An essential product if you are the weeder of the family.
Summary: Good idea
