The Garden Bandit is a Canadian made tool and is one of the best I’ve ever found. It’s a must have for every gardener and will become as important as pruners to you in no time at all.

It’s a simple design but amazingly efficient at uprooting large numbers of weeds with little effort. It’s a very lightweight hand tool that’s perfect for those with limited strength.

The very thin stainless steel blade glides through the soil, the weeds don’t stand a chance when it comes to The Garden Bandit. Once the soil is loosened it’s quick and easy to just pick up the weeds, shake off the soil and they’re gone!

The Bandit features a stainless steel blade that won’t rust and the hard polypropylene handle is indestructible.

The unique shape of the working end of the Bandit makes is great for scooping out grooves in the soil for planting rows of seeds or seedlings too. The task of mixing in soil amendments as well as fertilizers and other nutrients is done easily too.

You’ll soon find that there are jobs that the Bandit is good for that it was never intended, such as scraping the mud off of your boots and even cleaning the gutters! It’s the perfect shape for that too!

I highly recommend adding this handy, easy to use tool to your collection right away. Don’t waste another minute struggling with the weeds.

  1. I purchased the Garden Bandit in Vancouver years ago and still using it. It is the best simple tool to remove close to the ground weeds and even thick ones without ruining the ground. Since it is still being sold I am going to purchase another one because we all fight to use the one we have.

    • That’s great! I’m glad you know about it already and love it! It’s such a simple design and so effective.
      It’s definitely one of my favourite tools and I always have an extra one on hand.
