Fiskars Uproot Weed Puller

If you are a little late planting this years garden every second counts. The most tedious and time consuming task? Pulling weeds. Well this vicious little thing looks more like something for the zombie apocalypse than a garden tool, but the Uproot promises to wipe out weeds without wiping out your back. Four serrated edges form a stainless steel claw that grabs weeds by the root. The long handle is attached to a foot platform keeping you upright while you penetrate the tough soul with a simple step. Once the root is firmly grasped simply pull on the handle and the entire tap root is pulled up along with it.

CANNABRIC | HEMP BRICK

Hemp is an extremely versatile plant and we have found yet another way it can improve our lives even more. Welcome, Cannabric!  Cannabric’s are an eco-friendly homeowners dream.  The main component of Cannabric hempbricks is hemp, and can be used for insulating, or loadbearing inside- and outside walls. Hemp is naturally mold, pest and flame resistant, so we think this makes it a pretty cool building tool. The bricks also offer special thermal, acoustic and bio-climatic qualities to keep your home quiet, safe and dry throughout the year. Hemp bricks are generally made from a combination of hemp hurds, lime and water as it cures it draws the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and petrifies the cellulose into stone. This combination also makes the bricks lighter than the traditional clay bricks, which you’ll be thanking the gods for if you decide to build anything bigger than a dog house!

RUTILO | GREEN WHEEL

Making sure you get all your greens has just gotten easier! Known as the Green Wheel, this unique rotary garden is cleverly designed to be both iconic for its advantages, and its unique design. This system offers a simple, easy and efficient watering and lighting system in one, based on your particular plants needs. We love that this is an idea originally conceptualized by NASA, and is now being brought to the marketplace by Italian designer, Libero Rutilo. It’s the best looking indoor garden we’ve seen to date, and, once you are setup, the Green Wheel takes care of the rest. Sit back and relax, and watch as the wheel does all the work and distinctively rotates to water, feed, light and grow your garden. If it’s going to be that easy, why not? With less trips to the grocery store, we think that just leaves more time to make mojitos with all that basil!
