“A Stitch in Time” ?

Call me old fashioned, only when I was young sayings were forever on the tip of my grandmother’s tongue, and my mother’s too.

There is this tool, only, if you’ve never heard of it, how will you search for it online, and many online sites advertise by specific search terms and don’t group tools together, so perhaps using the word tools, or gardening tools, is the answer.

Here’s another stretch of lawn I never use chemicals on.

And here is the simple tool I used:

It really is this simple:
