Weeding and Composting
Unquestionably the most difficult task, weeding is no easy task! To get rid of the most stubborn weeds, it is important for all gardeners to be equipped with a weed wacker. Weeding is an activity that is important to do on a regular basis, especially in the summer when weeds are most prevalent on lawns, driveways and even terraces. You can find our wide range of weed killers on our website.
Chasing weeds is truly the most thankless task for gardeners. To improve this indispensable task, the weed whacker is the tool most appreciated by enthusiasts! Invasive and present in the most incongruous places, weeds deserve to be weeded regularly and even more so in the summer when the sun comes out. To help you carry out this maintenance, the weeder will be your ally. Let's discover our selection of products available in this category.
What is a weed whacker?
Invasive and annoying, weeds grow in your garden, your vegetable garden and also through the tiles of your terrace. The problem is that these weeds often carry diseases and could eventually transmit them if they are not removed. This is where the weed whacker comes in!
How do you choose your weeder?
In order to choose your weeder properly and meet your needs, you need to take into account certain characteristics. Here is a list of them:
- - First of all, it is important to take into account the height of the handle of your weeder. The higher it is, the more pain you will have in your arms and shoulders. The lower it is, the more it will hurt your back. So find a weed whacker that fits you perfectly or one with an adjustable handle.
- - To help you weed quickly, you can also take into account the temperature rise. This applies to both electric and thermal weed killers and depends on how much weed you need to treat.
- - In addition, it is important to consider the power of the weeder. The larger the area to be weeded, the greater the power required.
The advantages of weed control :
The main advantage of our weed wackers is that they come with a handle long enough to allow you to stand upright when manoeuvring. Whether it's a manual, thermal or electric weeder, there's no need to bend down and hurt your back!
Since ecology and organic products are at the heart of our preoccupations, the weeder has a second important advantage! It allows you to avoid spreading chemicals on your soil. The weeder is therefore perfect for preserving your health and that of your plantations.
Our different models of weeders:
The manual weeder:
The manual weeder does not require you to have an electrical outlet nearby. You simply have to plant the tool in the ground by pressing on the pedal so that it sinks as deep as possible. Then the claws will catch the weeds you have selected. Finally, pull the hand weeder towards you and remove the harvested weeds and roots.
The thermal weeder:
The thermal weeder, on the other hand, burns the weeds. This gardening tool prevents them from growing back again and again. You will find models with small gas cylinders and other models with large cylinders.
The electric weeder:
The electric weed whacker is just as effective at getting rid of all your weeds! However, you will need to get an electric mains and an extension cord to help you get through your garden.
In short, on Ducatillon.at/gb/ you will find a selection of weed killers to help you eliminate your weeds.
A composter to transform your waste into fertilizer
In this category, you will also find the necessary equipment to make compost. Composting is the recycling of your food and garden waste. These are placed in what is called a composter or compost bin. Over time, the waste decomposes and becomes fertilizer. This natural fertiliser is an effective and environmentally friendly way to feed your plants.
What can be thrown into a compost bin?
Many types of waste are compostable. You can therefore throw into your composter:
- - Garden waste: grass clippings, dead leaves, dead flowers, plants, etc.
- - Kitchen waste: fruit and vegetable peelings, eggshells, tea…
- - Other waste such as coffee filters, paper towels, newspaper, tea bags…
Before placing them in your compost bin, we advise you to shred your waste, it will decompose faster. You can then throw them into your composter. For a good balance, it is recommended to put a part of wet waste and a part of dry waste to have at the same time a sufficient moisture while ensuring a good aeration of the compost. You should then mix everything together for a perfectly homogeneous mixture and a quality compost. If it is too dry, you can add water.
We offer several models of compost bins in different sizes for your needs. Discover them in our catalogue.
