TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *Easier Ways to Rake Leaves (...And Keep It FUN!)


For those who have a garden and lawn, the best way to keep both healthy is to make sure you take care of all those Fall leaves by raking them up. While some subscribe to the leaf blower method, it never did make much sense to me to blow leaves into the street (or elsewhere) instead of raking them up. Also, using a blower isn't environmentally friendly. So if you prefer to try and do your yard, clean-up in as green a fashion as possible, then there is a rake in your future.

Here are some great tips to make raking up your Fall leaves and other yard debris easier...

  1. To prevent backaches from using muscles that you don't normally use, don't stand in one place when you rake. Instead, move your feet and legs as you bend and twist to do the raking. This will help to prevent injuries and discomfort down the road.
  1. When sweeping with your rake, sweep in smaller motions rather than larger ones. You will get more leaves per sweep that way, not to mention more of a workout for your muscles.

These are just a few tips to get you started with your Fall leaf raking. By following even a few of them, the task will be much more enjoyable and safer for you and those who help you rake leaves.
