Making a Case for Weed Cutters

If you’re a land owner, weeds are simply a fact of life. There’s no getting around it. The good news is that they’re manageable with the appropriate tools, a little bit of elbow grease and a solid game plan. The same goes for aquatic weeds. Regular attention and the right equipment will have your water weed-free and always open for swimming, boating or just great viewing!

In the world of aquatic weed management, both herbicides and weed cutters—like the Weed Razer—have their place. But for many, the question of when to use one and not the other may be unclear. Our answer? Compare them side by side.
