sheilah lombardoThe Wobbler sprinklerWatering large areasPros: sprinkler distributes rain-like droplets uniformly over a large circle; height adjustable, so it can clear taller plants and shrubs. Con: only does a full circle; no options for adjusting coverage area.https://www.bigsprinkler.com/catalog/lawn-garden/tripod-sprinklers/xcel-wobbler-telescoping-tripod

Ann CashTrake (TM)It's a combination trowel and small rake (hence, "trake") The long handle makes it easy on your back and knees! (Also love my Felco hand pruners and soil knife from A.M. Leonard (well worth the price!)I bought first one as a gift from a garden shop in Wilmington, NC but was later given one from Amazon; have also seen at House of Plants in W-S as well as on A. M. Leonard website
