One of the most effective weeding tools I've discovered isn't for the garden at all... it's for carving wood or chipping paint! That's right folks - a wood chisel or paint scraper is as deadly as other weeding tools in my experience. It's especially effective for removing large weeds from your lawn as well. Before you start wreaking havoc on your crabgrass however, I must warn you - please wear thick padded gloves. If you're not careful, it'll give you a blister you won't forget for a few days. So, if you need to do some weeding, swing by the tool department instead. They won't know what hit 'em!
