How to Use a Rake Properly
Whatever the rake dimensions, the process for using them is pretty straightforward. Set the rake in front of you and stroke the leaves as near you as possible. Just keep working your way and the leaves should be to your back.
After you make a pile of foliage, use the rake to make more piles. Make sure the foliage is spaced out from each other so they don’t get messed up again.
When you’re done, get a garbage can or bucket. Wear your gloves and put the piles into the container. Take them into the dump site or you can use it as compost material. Just remember the rake dimensions will determine how easy or difficult this task will be.
