cultivate, scalp, edge, dig, furrow, transplant, dethatch and harvest. It makes quick work of weeding my gravel driveway and working around pavers. The handle is made of recycled plastic, so its lightweight and feels good in the hand. The CobraHead is available in garden centers and at www.cobrahead.com. For an equally efcient weeder made locally, check out the wooden-handled shrew at www.progardenertools.com. If you garden in raised beds, Gardeners Supply Co. (www.gardeners.com) has come up with good-looking, ready-made ones. One type comes in a couple of sizes, and is made of rot-proof cedar with aluminum edges and plenty of holes in the bottom for good drainage. No kneeling or bending required. Then theres the cleverly designed Vegtrug. A single 71-inch-long trug (made of r) holds 380 quarts of soil with sufcient depth to grow lots of vegetables in a small space; tomatoes thrive in the center; the shallow edges work well for lettuces and herbs. There are even made-to-t cold frames and covers to protect crops from insects. Also from Gardners Supply Co. And if nothing else, you can always turn to the garden-smart strategies Ive relied on over the years: To ease cleanup, spread a tarp on the ground before you set to work, keep your clippers and shovel sharp, and take frequent tea breaks.

In Washington, pine, r and cedar needles are the major reason that many gutters clog.
Most of our competitors use a reverse curve system.
Unfortunately, these products leave a big gap between the top or hood and the main gutter. When pine and evergreen ow down they follow this curve and get into the gutter. Result? Clogs. Reverse curves, perforations, louvers, slits, slots & combinations of the above have never done what LeafFilter can do:

LeafFilter uses a surgical stainless steel micro lter that seals your gutters. Nothing but water gets in. Not one leaf, not pine needles, not grit. Just water.
Weve installed over 55,000 jobs and never had a clog.
We offer a plain English MONEY BACK WARRANTY IF YOUR GUTTERS EVER CLOG, LEAFFILTERS MANUFACTURER WILL REFUND YOUR MONEY FOR THE PRODUCT. Thats a bold promise.
