Three ways to make weed control easier than ever

Weed control is not the best part of gardening. It is way more fun to admire flower blossoms and savor the taste of freshly picked tomatoes than to pull weeds.

But without handling the task of weed control, the pesky plants that sprout uninvited in flower beds and vegetable gardens can literally take over.

Because getting rid of weeds is not usually a job that most gardeners enjoy, it’s wonderful when new tools and weed control products come along to make the job easier. Here’s a new power sprayer, a handy digging tool and a natural weed killer that make weeding a garden bed faster and easier.


Precision sprayer kills weeds while protecting garden plants

Do you despise weeding but don’t want your beautiful bushes to look like this?   A new weed sprayer called the Blue Viper Precision Lawn & Garden Sprayer may be your solution. Weighing in at only 3 pounds, this light weight, battery operated precision sprayer is the perfect solution to all your weed spraying issues.

The Blue Viper allows you to flawlessly spray an individual weed, create a perfect border edge, or hit those overhead trees/arbors. The innovative design features a 30″ shaft and a patent pending hood and nozzle system that sprays those hard to reach weeds in your landscape, garden and shrubs while protecting valuable garden plants and landscape shrubs. The Blue Viper is ergonomically designed so it is easy to hold and simple to operate.  Simply point and spray!

The Blue Viper is also great for use along fence lines, driveways, parking lots, and even spraying insecticide.  Start spraying and never pump, kneel or lug around a heavy sprayer again. The Blue Viper sells for $59.95. Click on the video above to see how it works or visit
