Weeder possesses a long handle, which allows easy usage without the need to stoop. Long handle not only provides better handling, but enhanced leverage. Owing to the perpendicular position of the blade head with respect to the handle, weeder can also be used to perform broom sweeping action in the garden. The additional use of a weeder is that it functions as an ice scraper.
The modern weeders provide the option to replace the blade head as per requirement. They come with a detachable blade. Also, the handle of these weeders is fabricated from recyclable materials like a blend of polypropylene and wood fiber. All these features made garden weeder a labor saving and environment friendly tool.
