Get rid of leaves and lawn debris without raking
Allowing fallen leaves and other lawn debris to lie on your lawn not only damages grass and impedes growth, but it also causes thatch to build up and can cause bare spots in your lawn. Raking can be a big job; one that must be done repeatedly throughout the autumn season. If you’re exhausted from raking and ready to enjoy beautiful fall weekends without all the yard work, you should definitely consider a tow-behind lawn sweeper. Lawn sweepers are the ideal tool for picking up leaves, pine needles, grass clippings and old grass (thatch) after dethatching.
Factors to consider when choosing a lawn sweeper are hamper capacity, number and quality of the brushes, brush-to-wheel ratio, easy of height adjustment, and of course compact storage. Some sweepers also have the ability to incorporate a dethatching kit, which lifts and picks up thatch in a single pass. The kit features two rows of individually flexing tines that gently pulls thatch and grass clippings to the surface of the lawn. The sweeper then collects the material, saving you from hours of raking and bagging. A pull-cord attached to the top of the pivoting hamper lets the user dump the lawn debris without ever leaving the tractor seat.
