    Every July and every fall, I do maintenance on my 1/8 acre pond.  The maintenance includes cutting all the cattails with The Yard Blade®, picking up the clippings and mowing the bank of the pond.  The first few years, there were a lot of cattails, and it would take 2 - 3 hours to cut them all down.  Since I have been doing the maintenance twice per year for several years, cattail growth is minimal.  It only takes a little over an hour to do complete maintenance on the pond now.

    Here is a time lapse video of the maintenance I did on my pond over the weekend.

     

     As you can see, it took just over an hour to cut all the cattails with The Yard Blade®, pick them up and mow the bank.  

         

    • Light weight, durable hardened steel blade with optional straight or serrated cutting edge.
    • 10" blade makes it easy to maneuver to cut around plants that you wish to keep.
    • Handle can be adjusted for left or right hand use, and is set to an angle to make cutting vegetation easy with the simple pull from shore.
    • Uses 1” diameter telescoping pole  (can be purchased on our website or at any local pool supply store)
    • Great for removing cattails from garden ponds.  (must cut below the water's surface to drown roots and prevent new growth*)  
    • Also great for weeding the vegetable garden and even cleaning up Day Lillies and Hostas at the end of the season!
    • Kit includes blade and all hardware required to attach to 1" telescoping pole.  (Telescoping pole sold separately)
