Basic Leaf Removal Tools Everyone Needs to Own

At summers end, we all look forward to the crisp, cool air of autumn. It is a time when temperatures begin to drop, but the first snow is still a few weeks away. It is a time when pumpkins and other gourds start decorating porches and kids start back to school. The leaves on trees change colors and become more beautiful by the day. Kids laugh over hearing leaves crunching under their feet and most love diving in a leaf pile. However, adults have a different opinion of leaves and their beauty. Most adults see only chores to do. Therefore, we have searched and found some basic leaf removal tools everyone needs to own. Having them on hand may make it a little easier for you to see the beauty and the fun in Autumn once again.

A Solidly Built Rake

This may seem like a given, but it isn’t. The truth is, not all rakes are created equal. When fall comes your way, you will have an easier time raking if you have a large fan rake to hold onto. Ideally, the rake will also have a padded handle. If you have a lot of shrubbery or flower beds, you may also want to have a smaller metal rake for clearing away twigs and leaves between them.
If you do not want to rake up a pile of leaves, you may also choose a leaf blower. They push leaves away from the area you are blowing. This is ideal for patios and decks where you do not necessarily want to pile them up. You simply want them off the area and it is more effective than raking.

Leaf Tarps

Leaf tarps are perfect helping hands for piling up leaves and moving them to other areas. You simply put the leaves you are raking up onto the top of a large tarp. When you are finished, you take the tarp to your designated dump spot and dump. Can You imagine not having to pick up leaves and put them in a wheelbarrow?

Work Not Included

Yard vacuums are perfect for people who do not have time for leaves. They attach to a lawn mower and all you have to do is ride around. The vacuum picks them up, shreds them, and holds onto them. These leaves can then decompose in your compost pile or protect plants from winters coming coldness. This is not the cheapest option, but it is perhaps one of the best ways to get rid of leaves. Other options also include leaf baggers, which are slightly cheaper, but just as effective as a leaf removal tool.
