I can’t wait for Spring to be here. When I begin to think about Spring I begin to think about my yard and how to better take care of it. Recently, I got a chance to talk to the representatives of Fiskars to help figure out what would be the best tools to keep my yard in shape and make it easy for me to do on my own.
Deluxe Stand-up Weeder
Fiskars has a creative and useful upright weeder. Constructed of four stainless steel serrated claws and ultra lightweight aluminum handle, the tool has an added feature that the others do not an ejector. It works by positioning the claws over the weed, stepping on a foot pad to insert the claws into the ground, and bending the handle back to push out the weed. This tool holds onto the pulled weed until you slide the ejection mechanism down to force the weed out into your collection container. There is absolutely no bending over with this tool, not event to pick up the pulled weed. It works well when the soil is moist after rain. I also love that this is recommended by the Arthritis Foundation. I also love this tool because I am small and need something that is easy to use, this worked perfectly.
StaySharp Max Reel Mower
Mowing the lawn is a difficult task for me. I can’t use a gas-powered mower because it is too hard for me to control. I was so glad that I got a chance to try the StaySharp Max Reel Mower. Having to cut the grass weekly, is a tough job so anything that can make it easier would be an asset. I know everyone has said get a gas powered one but I really wanted to try and push mower since it would give me more control. The setup was easy and fast, first positive. The StaySharp Max Reel Mower uses super durable steel blades that cut grass without touching each other. This mower is very quiet and means no annual sharpening of the blades like many real mowers. If you are concerned about it being too difficult to push it is not, along with the blades not touching, they have the only reel mower with adjustable blade height to change depending on how tall your grass is.
The smart design of the eco-friendly reel mower offers a clean cut without the hassles of gasoline, oil, battery charging, electrical cords or loud engine noise. It is 60% easier to push than other reel mowers.
I was extremely happy with the StaySharp Max Reel Mower and would recommend one to anyone with a yard smaller than an acre. If that’s you and you want a greener way to care for your lawn while getting a great workout.
