Weed Killing Steamer gets the job done in a clean manner

weed-killing-steamerWeeds – these happen to be the bane of many a person who happens to own a yard. Of course, the easy way out would be to make sure that the entire front yard is cemented, but that would mean having to deal with warmer temperatures throughout the year, and not being able to have some nice, big and shady tree cover the front of your home for that added picturesque touch. Well, mowing the lawn is a chore that many of us are familiar with, and pouring weed killer is not the most ideal of things to do due to the potential side effects of poison in the long run, which is why this $249.95 Weed Killing Steamer does seem to be the ideal candidate in getting the job done without any negative repercussions on the environment.

The Weed Killing Steamer happens to be a lawn and garden steamer which will be able to help control common weeds using ordinary tap water as opposed to harmful chemicals or backbreaking labor. All it takes is a squeeze of the steamer’s trigger, where it will then unleash a weed-wilting blast of super-heated 311º F steam at up to 65 psi. All that is required would be a 5 to 10 second treatment, where unwanted vegetation will immediately discolor and shrivel, before calling it quits in 48 hours, tops. In controlled field tests, 100% of dandelions, crabgrass, and cudweed plants treated by the steamer were completely killed or severely damaged with a single application. The steamer boasts of a long wand that allows you to reach weeds without kneeling or stooping, and its 48-oz. tank provides up to 35 minutes of continuous use, enough to treat hundreds of weeds. It takes just 10 minutes to heat up, and comes with a pressure gauge that informs you when steam is ready.
