Getting Raked Out Over Leaves and Fall Debris? Try These Tips


Nothing says fall like the smell of leaves and wood smoke. But as you rake up your garden and yard, did you ever stop to wonder how you can make your raking job easier? Or maybe you’re a contractor who does lots of landscaping and lawn care. Whatever the case, here are some different ways that we can help you get raked out over leaves and fall debris:

Rake with a friend!

If you have a hard time getting motivated to rake, try this: rake with a friend. Raking can be fun when it’s done in pairs! If you don’t have any friends that are willing to help you out, then maybe it’s time for some new friendships. You could try asking around at work if anyone wants to build up their strength by helping out the elderly or disabled people in your community. Everyone has someone they know who would be willing to lend a hand and get their hands dirty on the weekend (or anytime).

If you want even more motivation for raking with others, consider trying out one of these activities:

  • Zucchini bowling
  • Cornhole (bean bag toss)
  • Card games like Uno or Hearts

Use Leaf Scoops

Leaf Scoops are a great tool to have around the yard, especially when raking leaves can be time-consuming and tiresome. Using Leaf Scoops will make your leaf removal process easier and faster than ever before.

  • Leaf Scoops can retrieve up to 2x more leaves than standard rakes because of their wide surface area.
  • Leaves are easily scooped into bags for disposal or composting. They can also be used as mulch, fertilizer, natural pesticide and herbicide!

Use a Leaf Vacuum

If you’re sick of spending hours on your knees and you have a large yard, look into purchasing a leaf vacuum. A leaf vacuum is an easy-to-use machine that helps to remove leaves from the garden. Use it to reduce the amount of time spent raking and also reduce the amount of effort required.

There are many ways to clear leaf and debris from the garden.

There are many ways to clear leaf and debris from the garden. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, so consider your personal situation before deciding on which one is best for you.

  • Leaf scoop: If you have a lot of small debris to pick up and want something lightweight, try a leaf scoop. These handy tools are designed to be used by one person and can be purchased at most hardware stores for under $20. The downside is that they are not recommended for large piles of leaves or anything larger than about two inches in diameter.
  • Leaf vacuum: If your yard has a lot of leaves or other plant material but not enough volume to justify using a large blower, consider getting an affordable leaf vacuum instead. This handheld device sucks up even wet materials without clogging easily or losing suction over time like some other models do. It’s also easy-to-use; simply pull the trigger continuously until all debris is collected inside! A downside might be having difficulty maneuvering around tight corners due to its size (about 12 inches long).


You know that feeling when you have to rake the fallen leaves in your yard? Well, we don’t want you to have that feeling anymore!
