Bob Vila Radio: Raking Tips
Bob's Tip of the Day: Don’t rake anything you can mow—leaves that fall on your lawn can be removed easily as long as you’re still cutting the grass. When the grass stops growing and you need to start raking, be sure to wear gloves to save your hands from blisters. Don’t rake long distances—bring your leaf bag to the leaves, not the other way around. If you have a lot of leaves, try raking them onto a tarp and then pulling the tarp along with you as you work.
