Summer is heating up so let’s stay cool in the garden! Keeping ourselves in the shade is one great way to enjoy gardening when the temperatures soar, another is to use tools that make our trimming, cutting and sawing easier. This week Fiskars is helping us keep cool with a new tool giveaway. Their new Billhook Saw is durable, multi-functional, and flat-out fun to use. (Really!)
The New Fiskars Billhook Saw
The first time I picked up a Billhook Saw by Fiskars, I knew it was tough enough to do a job I’d been putting off. I have a 10-year-old weigela shrub that I’d neglected to keep properly pruned. (I hate it when that happens.) To make matters worse, those knotty branches were failing to develop leaves and stressing the rest of the shrub. It was time to stop procrastinating and get this garden chore done.
Sometimes I wonder why I put tasks off? Once I readied myself and had the proper tool, it wasn’t a hard job. The Billhook Saw did most of the work. All I needed to do was put a little garden gumption behind my tool and the job was done. Such a clean cut! Whoohoo! Check that job off the list!
Look at those blooms now! Of course it will take awhile for the pruned portion of the shrub to fill out, but the rest of the bush is refreshed and blooming with gusto!
My next task was to tackle my lovely chamomile. It grows so well in my garden, but it’s first blooms were spent. The plant now looked straggly and pretty messy.
I used the non-saw side of the Billhook Saw to sort through the entangled stalks and clear out what I didn’t want. The blade is sharp enough that you can swing it as if using a sickle. Once you get a back and forth rhythm going it’s actually fun. Of course, I also discovered a few lurking weeds while cleaning up. The hook end of the saw helped loosen those little rascals. Two more jobs checked off my summer task list. Done and done.
Of course garden season is just getting underway and my garden task list grows right alongside of my garden. I’m sure my Fiskars Billhook Saw will get a workout this summer. I’d love to give you one of these great tools. It’s east to enter the Fiskars Billhook Saw Giveaway. Simply leave a comment below.
