Saws in the Garden


Saws in the GArden


 Child Helping with Bush Removal


Another child asks questions and inspects the work, ready to be the next one to help.


Safety Goggles




Young children can absolutely use saws. Instruct them on how to use the saw with both hands and explain why the work is being done. Instruct the child to be careful if others come near them, and likewise instruct the other children in their responsibilities to give saw users ample space to use the tools without causing harm to themselves.
