selective weeding
 
I want to kill grass/weeds but not established trees or bulbs. What is on the market that will do this ?

Your hands are very effective. :thumbup:

Leah...you and I think very much alike. My new neighbor asked me the same question. She has a nice garden(cacti and succulents) but it's overgrown with grass. When she asked what she could use to get the grass out I replied 'gloves':laughing:

I've recently hit on the idea of wearing surgical gloves while weeding. Keeps dirt out from under my nails and keeps you sensitive enough to pinch the tiniest weed. :thumbup:

Sounds good, 'cept a lot of our Texas weeds are 'surgically sharp'. I use the old time leather palmed work gloves, and still get punctured from time to time:eek:
