Thread Details

I've been looking for an easy way to pull weeds now that spring is here, and they are popping up in my yard. Found this on Amazon. Great reviews. Price seems good compared to other non-ebay sellers. (Lowes has a different version for cheaper, but it isn't the 'deluxe model'.

The weeds never end. Just get rocks and poison.

Wonder why the deluxe model has a shorter warranty than the other models.

I was actually thinking about getting something like this after cutting my grass this weekend and seeing all the weeds, but this one has a lot of reviews saying the plastic breaks quickly. Can anyone recommend something that works better (other than Round Up and the like)?

looks like normal price, and overpriced at that for plastic.

Amazon also has the Oswego GW-1 Grampas Weeder. Similar design, wood & metal construction. Good reviews too. Only $15. Not sure if that helps you Amber.

I have river rock yard with a sprinkler system. The sprinkler system spritzes round up once a week. Great success.

If you are near a Menard's, get this for 12.99:

All metal, worked like a charm for me removing hundreds of plantains and dandelions.

I own the regular or plain version and it works very well on weeds BUT they have to be large enough to be gripped by the tool in order to be removed. If you have tons of weeds just make a habit of spreading some corn gluten via your fertilizer spreader, it's non-toxic and stops weed seeds from germinating in the first place.

FYI. This arrived yesterday. It works surprisingly well. It is plastic, but very sturdy. Pulls weeds like a champ. So far, after weeding my back yard, I'm very happy w/ the product.
