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, 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. If you don't already have one, buy a sturdy rake with wide tines that will bend a tad. This will make it easier for you to get more leaves per sweep.
  1. If you routinely have pain in either your shoulders or your back, consider purchasing an ergonomic rake. These rakes are clog-free and have bent handles - helping to take the pressure off your back and shoulders.

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.
