    King Spade, trenching shovel and or Turfco bed edger with sod trenching blade.

    More often than not.. King Spade is the first in. I wish I had a picture for every situation I have used a KS landscape related and non landscape related.

    It makes a great hammer, wedge, breaker bar.. the list is long.

    I looked at the turfco "edge r rite" a few years ago at the lawn and garden expo, had something similar once. for jobs similar to last weeks tree job, still want the one with the 4 horse honda and v blade. since it works like a sod cutter, you cut the v, remove with grass and roots, put in wire, replace sod and stomp. at about 1500 bucks, not too bad.

    I still think there is some way to get a rotary sawblade type tool that can do both turf and concrete. with a 14" blade and 3/8 wide, maybe diamond one for concrete cutting across sidewalks and drives and then a carbide with replacable teeth to do very narrow dirt trenches and cut through roots.
