The woodland area in my garden is getting a bit congested and I am finding it very difficult to tackle weeds without damaging other plants.
What I really need is a couple of tools on long poles so that I can reach from a path that runs through the middle.
The tools I need to be attached to the ends are secateurs and a gripper to pull up weeds.
Does anyone know if these are available?



There are pruners on the end of extending poles in the garden tools section at most GCs Bernard. Perhaps a lighter one of them would do the trick for you. Dunno about the gripper.

You can get loppers at a lot of Hardware stores or B&Q and the like. For a gripper could you use a hoe? Alternatively look for Pond Tools which may be able to be used for weeding etc rather than for ponds?
