I am not what you would call a gardener, far from it, but I know what looks pretty and colourful and with the help of my parents, I and my other half have managed to make or garden look half decent this year. We have chopped back, weeded, mowed, I am sure you get the picture and there is now a nice patio area for my table and chairs. The one issue with the patio area was there were a lot of weeds growing in between the slabs and so after mentioning this to my Mum and Dad, they phoned me one evening to say there was a Weeding Tool in the Better ware catalogue and should they order it? I have never had a Betterware book in my life, but Mum and Dad have had the occasional item and so they ordered it for me.


The Betterware book has been around for some time now and even though I know I could have popped along to my local B and Q or Homebase for the weeding tool, I thought the price was really good. I paid £3.99 for my weed cutter and I am sure it would have been the same if not more in the shops. There is nothing particularly fancy about the cutter but if it does the job and the price is right then I am happy!


The Betterware item arrived a couple of weeks after my parent’s placing the order and I think I remember it coming in a plain cardboard box. The best way that I can describe the tool is that it looks like a capital letter L. There is an orange handle and then this feeds down towards the blade, which is curved away from the handle. Even though you are suing something that has a blade on it, it actually felt really safe and sturdy to use.


There were no instructions with the item, but then there is no need for any really as the shape of the item says it all. I took my new tool outside and set to work on some of the weeds, I decided that it was best to concentrate on some of the easier, less wild weeds first and the blade sliced through these with ease.


I then decided that I was going to have a go at the tougher weeds and again, the blade appeared to cut through these with ease. Because the blade was quite small it was able to get into all the little groves of the slabs and those hard to reach areas which were really good. The only downside with that is because the area of the blade is quite small, the weed cutting process is quite time consuming.


Once you have finished the weeding, the best thing that I have found is to wipe the blade over and to keep it in a dry place and then the blade stays not just in a safe place but dry as well. I have been using the blade for some time now and it is still as good as new and the first day I had it but I imaging it would not be too hard to sharpen the blade either.


In summary, this is a great tool and I have no hesitation in recommending it. It is a great price and even for people like me who are not gardeners, it can help transform an area!

I had one of these many years ago before our pressure washer - but sadly it broke early one. Great review though!
