terra, you haven't tried the worlds best shovel? and you call ur self a landscaper lol
Shovels are for digging, not prying.
How else do you propose removal of large shrubs or the like? What would you "pry" with?
Or are you saying you should not pry a shrub out for removal? I have been doing this for about 10yrs now and I have tried many different techniques and wasted alot of money on ineffecient fancy items because I thought there might be an easier way than strong tools and a strong back and some hard work.
Yes I buy $100 shovels and $45 pruners, some people call me crazy but I have had alot of these items for over 6 years and will be handing them down to the next generation when they take over my business.
if you need to PRY at all in a transplant you have done something way wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!! get a dyna digger and a good forged flat spade with a good file to keep it shaver sharp, before we dig I can take the hair off my arm....
pry it out dead tree or plant time
Ohh no no. I meant for removal exclusively, transplants need different attention but removals the fastest cleanest way is key. I do alot of renovating because of lack of proper maintenance or bad landscape designs which requires the majority of the stuff trashed.
Dyna digger! Thats a price tag! http://www.gettinggreen.com/productdetail.asp?productid=39
How about a landscape bar or something comparable?
I have one of those just in shovel form
For removals a Pulaski is a Gardeners best friend.
OK, that one I don't know unless I call it something differerent. Clue me in, dishboy.
It is a combination of an axe and a mattock with an edge. Anyone who works with landscapes should have one.
