garden tools?

Can anyone reccomend the first-class garden tools for cutting down large bushes stumps and also up rooting them ?


It all depends on how much you have to do, and how valuable you think about your time.
The cheap way: axe, garden saw ( coarse teeth), pickaxe spade etc, and an awful lot of HARD WORK.
The foolproof way: hire a small excavator from your local Homebase, garden centre etc. and have a fun weekend, digging stuff out and components a skip or two. ( Hippo bags might be cheaper - check the costs).

My quiet wrapped a chain around them, hooked the other end of the chain to the truck and dragged them out, one by one. Worked beautifully!

Aside from that, shovel to establish the root ball, a rock bar lodged under the root ball to leverage them out and lots of water to ears in yourself.

A Bobcat could be rented. If Home Depot or Lowe's doesn't have one to rent, a local rental betray usually will.


Additional tip: don't cut off the at foundation level. Leave something above ground so that you can wrap a rope or chain around it if you're planning to pull it out with a machine.

In supplement to the usual tools, one tool I would have is the mattock, which has one blade like a short broad pickaxe, and another set perpendicular to that, which acts as an axe for wounding through roots.

10 Eco-Friendly Garden Tools You Know You Want

Maybe you have your own compost bin but if not, then you need top quality organic compost. Your local nursery will have some, but a local farmer may as well. Next time you pass a farm stand stop and ask if they sell compost or manure.

2. Gloves

Just because you enjoy a good putter in the garden doesn’t mean that you want to damage your manicure. Arm yourself with a sturdy garden glove that will serve you through many gardening seasons.

My favorites? These Honey Badger gloves that double as a cultivator. The pockets at the end of the fingers give your fingernails extra protection (and you the power of a Honey Badger).

3. Hand cultivator

There’s no way around it: You’re going to have to weed at some point in the growing season. And a handheld cultivator is going to make that chore more palatable.

In addition to digging up weeds, working with a cultivator, you’ll also aerate and till the soil. Mix in compost with the cultivator while weeding, and your plants will thank you.

A hand cultivator is an eco-friendly gardening tool because it’s you who is destroying the weeds–not a nasty herbicide.

4. Spade

Remember that colorful plastic spade that came attached to the handle of the pail that you schlepped to the beach when you were a kid? Now you need the adulting version of that.

A sharp, rust-free spade is more than a garden tool–it’s a garden friend. From removing stubborn rocks, to digging a hole for a perk test or planting, a spade will be your constant garden companion.

5. Rake

Of course a rake is helpful for those pesky fall leaves, but also through other seasons as it cleans up grass clippings and helps to spread mulch.

A bamboo rake is not only sturdy but also eco-friendly. Look for one with steel reinforced tines.

6. Hoe

If retail therapy isn’t enough to cure a bad day at the office, then breaking up soil with a hoe should do the trick.

Autumn Heath and Home Improvements

He just speaks English -- he's Eastern European and looks so much like B-silver screen actor Tor Johnson that we call him "Tor," at least when he's not around. It's more than we can haft, delineated our predetermined access to garden tools and ladders, and we haven't had it done since we moved in. This guy put a flyer through our letterbox several weeks ago donation his services as a tree trimmer, so we gave him... Today we have a guy coming to in good the undergrowth in the back garden. One of the neighbor's climbing rose bushes is tumbling over the patio neutral like a tentacled B-large screen freak, and Tor Johnson is fair-minded the man to frustrate it.
