I did a 3' x 12' bed in short order while sitting on my Ames garden
cart/scooter. By working carefully, I got every last bit of that @%
Bermudagrass out of there, and nothing came back until it reseeded from the
lawn. I know the new stuff came from seeds - no long roots and shoots like
the stuff that had invaded. If the soil is slightly moist, I can start at
the crown and easily work and tug at the nasty stuff. The Cobrahead is a
champ at not breaking the root once you develop a little wrist technique.
I just received a sample of the new Fiskar's garden cart/seat. I'll let you
know whether it's good or not. I've been very happy with my Ames. The
Fiskars new Momentum reel mower is superb! I was prepared for it to be like
the reel mowers of my childhood, but I tried the Fiskars at the GWA
symposium last fall. It almost made me wish I had a lawn to use it on.

The short handled is perfect to use while sitting on my rolling garden
or on the ground. It can get underneath and around all of my good plants
without harming them, and it will grub out Bermudagrass without leaving
roots (and if you know Bermudagrass, you know how one speck of root will
I use the short handled for all of my containers, too. I love how it
out weeds and the old plants. I also use it for making furrows in my
beds for planting seeds, after I've used it to weed the bed.
Too bad you're not going to be at the Southeastern Flower Show next week.
I'm speaking there, and I'm giving one away. I love the thing!
