How to choose the right garden rake
Unsure which garden rake is right for cleaning up your outdoor space? Luckily, we're here to help you discover a suitable rake for revamping your garden! We ensure you snap up the perfect pick by ensuring you select the right material for your new rake to preventing you from deliberating over the size, we make uncovering the best garden rake for your outdoor area effortless. For collecting piles of dead dry leaves and other light and dry materials, it's recommended to opt for a light-duty rake.
This kind of rake can be made from materials like plastic which also makes them one of the most affordable types of garden rake. However, for heavy-duty applications like rating wet and heavy dirt, you'll need to invest in a more robust rake made from materials like carbon steel and stainless steel. A strong and rust-resistant rake head will prevent the tines from being bent backwards and out of shape, and ensure a long-lasting lifespan for years of gardening triumphs!
The size of a typical lawn rake will also range between 22 to 30 inches (the measurement of the rake head width at its widest), so you should pick one that suits the amount of material you need to move. Small backyards, for example, that have minimal overhanging trees should suit a small rake size, whereas larger gardens or professional landscapers may require a larger rake head size to move more material in one movement. For specialised gardening jobs that require leaves to be raked from underneath bushes or between garden features, it's best to select a leaf rake with a long handle that can allow you to reach into these tricky areas with ease.
Are metal or plastic rakes better?
As mentioned above, the right leaf rake material depends entirely upon the application. Plastic garden rakes are most suitable for light-duty garden tidying, whereas the metal alternatives are typically much stronger and ideal for heavy-duty raking. Plastic rakes are also lightweight and therefore easier to use for both youngsters helping out in the garden and older gardeners. Metal rakes, on the other hand, can also be used for moving and levelling out mounds of gravel as well as collecting tree branches.
