Heron, by "solid bladed jobbies" I presume you mean the 3 or 4 blade cutters, (like a
10" 3 tooth saw blade)?Yes I use those for large tough and overgrown weeds like burdock,
and small aspen, but I use the heavy string for weed / grass maintainance, the solid
blade doesn't do well cleaning to ground level. Thanks for the imput on the paint /
Has anyone else tried paint on grapes to stop mouse chewing? Del
