Leave the soil alone, just keep moving and cut back what you don't like. I have a friend who is complaining about thistles in his sheep pasture. A tool like this could help with thistle. No, one cut-back wouldn't kill the plant, but it would keep it from going to seed, and eventually you'd kill the plant if only by being shaded out by its (unpruned) neighbors.

We will probably buy more. Great for finest weeding, for grubbing out roots or rhizomes, for tillage and every task we've set it to so far.
