Fiskars is well known for producing very high quality tools. They make hand tools and so much more useful garden equipment that you’ll become familiar with the name and fond of their tools very quickly.
This tool is specifically designed for the long, deep tap roots that a dandelion, thistles and some other weeds produce. However, it is also effective in removing other weeds too such as the plantain.
Don’t let it fool you, the bent design is perfect. There are other designs of this tool available but trust me, the one that works the best is this one right here. The angle of it and the leverage is perfect and every weed pops out almost without effort.
This dandelion weeder is made of sturdy cast aluminium with a large easy to hold, soft rubber handle. It’s worth every penny and you’ll make short work of all the dandelions, thistles, plantains and more.
The best thing about this tool is that is creates very little damage to the lawn.
When the weeding tool is applied to the weed in the correct spot, which is right around the neck of the root, usually right at the surface of the soil before the green leaves start, it will pop it out and leave little more than a small hole where the weed itself came out. It won’t make a big spot in the grass that you’ll have to seed over.
I highly recommend adding this to your hand tools collection and make short work of those dandelions and other tap root weeds!
