My backyard is… a wilderness. I have to knock down some pretty serious bushes to try an eco-friendly weed removal technique. Basically it consists of cutting everything down and putting plastic over it. This will get to 160+ degrees in the summer heat and bake all of the plants/seeds under it. Hopefully sterilizing the ground so I can plant grass or prairie seed bundles at the end of the year. Just down the hill is where I’ll have a small veggie garden… that’s another reason for not using chemicals.
Any way… I was looking around for a machete. With my love for gadgets/tools/sharp things I found a “few” sites with some American made knives and such.
- Ontario Knives can be found at Discount Cutlery Where I found a nice selection of Machetes.
