Subject: RE: BS: Weapons of mass weed destruction
We had a super petrol brush cutter for our last garden, to keep the long ditch clear, and allow the primroses, various frogs and Hissing Sid the grass snake to live there without being overgrown by massive clumps of unfriendly weeds. It had a sturdy leather harness, and once a year was enough to keep the habitat under control. We really didn't want to use chemical herbicides. I loved using it; we often fought over whose turn it was!
One has to watch carefully so as not to injure creatures with machinery like that though. The Hedgehog Hospital I support is forever taking in poor little hedgehogs with terrible injuries caused by strimmers etc.
