I have just purchased a fiskas weed puller and it is great.
It does what it says and so easy to use.
The only problem is it leaves a holes in the lawn but I did plan to reseed it anyway so this is not a problem.
I got one last year (massively reduced in GC) & went mad in the front garden - it was full of holes afterwards!! I went prepared, though & dropped some soil + grass seed into each one. Now, you can't see where I had been removing.
Hmm, I'd never thought of using one of those, but that sounds effective - might give it a try, thank you both.
If you have mature weeds and want to use a weedpuller best to use it when the soil is damp and it will pull the whole root out.using it on dry soil somethings the roots snapped
