Even though it is just the beginning of August (and the country is still in the midst of a heat wave) it will be time to start thinking about tackling a not-so-glamorous yard project—RAKING LEAVES! If you have a lawn that is wooded or contains even a few trees, you probably have a firm plan or routine for cleaning up leaves. Whether it is raking them into small piles and picking up one leaf pile at a time, or using a leaf blower to corral the leaves into a large pile to be dragged off on a tarp, neither tactic is easy or efficient. Read on for more fall lawn care tips.
Just like you purchased a lawn tractor to help make it easier and faster to cut your lawn, why not use a lawn sweeper to help get your fall cleanup done faster. Lawn sweepers are amazingly efficient tools for picking up leaves and other yard debris such as pine needles and small sticks. No more sore arms and back from spending all day raking leaves and picking them up by hand— get the project done from the comfort of your tractor seat! The large capacity hampers hold anywhere from 15-20 cubic feet of debris, which makes for fewer emptying stops, therefore, saving you time and energy for other duties. Is this product, with its large capacity hamper and 42″ wide sweep, going to take up a lot of needed storage space? We’ve kept in mind that storage is nearly always a concern for the customer while purchasing a large item. The patented storage feature of our sweeper allows the sweeper hamper to be removed and collapsed, which allows the sweeper to transition into an upright position against the wall to take up minimal space for storage, leaving room and easy access for other everyday products. While fall cleanup is necessary, it doesn’t have to be back-breaking experience. Let your lawn tractor and a sweeper work harder, so you don’t.
Another feature of the Brinly lawn sweeper is that it has the option to connect a dethatcher, allowing the user to do two tasks at once. Does raking wet leaves add time to your fall clean up? Think about adding an optional dethatcher kit to help pull those wet leaves up so they can be picked up by the sweeper brushes. Plus, use the dethatcher kit in the spring to help pull up thatch (dead grass, roots, debris) that can build up and prevent air, water, and nutrients from getting to your lawn’s root system. Once the thatch is pulled to the surface, the sweeper comes right behind to pick up all debris at the same time. Do more. Work less. There’s a lot to consider when purchasing a sweeper, but to sum things up, everyone should consider three key areas—efficiency, convenience and storage. Get prepared for fall cleanup and make those toilsome duties easy.
