Then you need one of these amazingly Back friendly and easy gadgets!
I visited a friend the other night to take her for a spin in the new motor and her yard was literally covered in weeds popped right out of the ground! She showed me her Garden Weasel Weed Popper and then demonstrated how well it works.
You just stick the tines in next to any kind of weed in your lawn or flowerbeds, step on the pedal and the weed just pops right out with its root. It works fabulously and we have been attacking the dandelions and crab-grass this evening, one popping and the other picking up. Yet another great way to bond with your partner, over the 'Invasion of the Dandelions'! ;-)
We bought ours from an Ace Hardware store, Walmart do not stock them, but the Garden Weasel website has a list of stockists. Ours was $24.99 plus tax.
