As spring comes into full swing, many people are emerging from their homes to get their yards ready for the summer. A common job is the removal of troublesome roots that either have the potential to or are causing problems on other parts of the yard.
So what tools should be used to do your own root removal? There are plenty of options!
The first—and best—tool is one that you more than likely already have in your garage: a shovel. In particular, shovels with a sharp tip on the head should be used to remove the soil from around the root. The sharp shovel tip can either be used to dig around the root to expose it to a saw or to hack at it to remove it.
