Here's another simple yet practical tool - a lightweight grass and weed sickle. Stouter and longer than the other sickles, it has a bigger, wider blade that drops the grass at the end of the stroke, rather than dropping it as it’s cut. Blade is slightly angled, with a single bevel.
Gardener's Kit Tip: Tie your ornamental grasses tightly around the waist with twine before cutting them down. This holds them together, preventing cut material from sprawling every which way around you, and making for a speedier clean-up.
