It's fascinating to see all the unique Garden Tools and strategies people have created over the years to control weeds, remove weeds, poison weeds, burn weeds, and so on.  Ergonica has also invented a new weed puller called the WEED TWISTER that does an excellent job of pulling out individual weeds in tight spaces.  Many of the tools listed here are especially suitable for children, adults, seniors and the physically challenged.  Here you will also find Organic Herbicides and Weed Control Barriers and Mulches.  Many of these special tools place Weed Control right in your hands!

As you will see below, the usual places to buy tools -- your local hardware store or blasted on TV -- often bypass many of the more interesting and unique tools available.  Since they are hard to find, these tools also make interesting collectible items, especially since garden tools are hot on eBay and local swap meets.

Judging from the multiple "twisting" type tools presented on this page from various manufacturers, the "weed twister" concept is alive and well! Beyond the two weed twisters you see here, you may have also seen TV commercials for the Garden Claw, which is a twisting cultivating tool, and a motorized D-WeeD-R which is shaped like a long screw-driver with a short cross-bar.  The Ergonica WEED TWISTER was also briefly televised in Florida.  However, because of the high cost of television spots, the television campaign was halted in order to keep the price down for the benefit of the consumer. 

For comparison information between the Ergonica WEED TWISTER and other Weed Twisters, as well as other long-handled weeding tools for gardeners and farmers, see the Weeder Features page.

Whether you're killing weeds or "grooming misplaced plants," the tool you select could help you get the job done more successfully and efficiently.   

The consumer information and guides provided on several of these links as well as on the Weeder Features page, will help you chose the tool that's right for you.   For agriculture applications, please see the White Paper On the Weed Twister and Other Alternatives to Precise Hand Weeding in Agricultural Applications.  As suggested in Groom Your Garden, your attitude and philosophy could make the difference between an arduous task or an artful experience.

The use of chemicals to control pests and weeds must be handled responsibly.  We strongly encourage non-toxic pesticides and alternative solutions wherever possible.  We include information about TrueGreen and Terminix for your convenience and with the expectation that your use of their products will be with the utmost care.  An excellent source of information about alternatives to pesticides is the Northwest Coalition for Alternatives to Pesticides.

    Challenge by Dr. Yucca

    What kinds of weeding tools do You need?

    Tom: I've seen a Master Weed Twister use other tools for weeding, instead of just the Weed Twister.  Does she lose her standing as a Master Weed Twister when she uses different weeders?

    Dr. Yucca: The Master Weed Twister knows which tool is best for each weed and situation, depending on such factors as the soil condition, length of roots, type of roots, and proximity to other plants that need to be protected, for example.  She will cunningly use the hoe in open areas when the weeds have shallow roots and there are no other plants to protect nearby.  She will wisely pull out the precise Weed Twister to use like a circle hoe in narrow places between favored plants or to twist out a weed with larger roots.

    Tom: How can one know the length of roots when you can't see below the surface of the soil?

    Dr. Yucca:  It takes study and experience, my dear friend.  In time, you will learn to see the roots beneath the soil and the Ergonica Weed Twister will become like a natural extension of your own hand.  There are some Masters who can pull out a weed single handedly by twisting with their weaker hand in one deft move - even while sitting down and nursing a baby!  There are others who have incorporated weed twisting into aerobic exercises as part of a Speed Gardening routine.  You will get there in time.  Enjoy the path, for you are in good company.
