THINGS THAT DON’T SUCK: This Gerber telescoping pruner. The crepe myrtles were growing over/into the gutters, and with this gadget I was lopping branches with ease, including some that were surprisingly big. I had a similar one from Harbor Freight years ago, but it didn’t work nearly as well. As a ladder-avoidance tool, this is right up there with the much-loved light-bulb changer.
