Paul asks…

Does anyone know about the quality of Flexrake tools?

I’m researching some gardening tools, and I’m trying to compare the quality of tools from various companies. I’m comparing Sears (craftsman), Felco, Corona, and Flexrake. I have found information on each of the companies except for Flexrake. Does anyone have any information about the quality of Flexrake tools? Please let me know. Thanks.

GardenersCardiff answers:

Flex rake is great. Sturdy, reliable and does what you need it for. Iv had more problems with craftsman then anything!

Maria asks…

What is the difference between ho and hoe?

Which one is a gardening tool and which one means prostitute?

GardenersCardiff answers:

Hoe with an ‘e’ is the gardening tool and ‘ho’ is slang for any slutty girl, prostitute or not. I’ve never seen the latter with the e.

George asks…

What is the best way to secure an outdoor aluminum building?

I am getting ready to buy a small aluminum building from Lowes Hardware and this one comes without a floor. How can I secure it to the ground to keep it from blowing away or at least weight the bottom of it down with a floor or studs anchored? It will be used for storing the lawnmower,gardening tools and a freezer.

GardenersCardiff answers:

I like placing pressure treated 4×6 on the ground where the building contacts the ground. Dig a post hole at each corner of the building below the frost line . Bend a piece of rebar, in the shape of a u,over the 4×6 and fill hole with sackcrete covering both ends of the rebar by 6 inches. I then screw the building to the 2×6. Use a 1×4 as a spacer between the building and the 2×6. So the rebar has room over the 2×6. If you want a floor I would use wood nailed to the 4×6. Depending on the size of the building you might need additional 4×6 in the center . I would space at 24 inches.
