THE BEST GARDEN RAKE FOR 2021
SPEAR & JACKSON 3-IN-1 LEAF ROAKE
Multi-tasking garden rake that does everything: clean your lawn, edges and collect leaves with ease
The clever, modular design of this rake makes leaf-clearing in large gardens faster and easier.
Multifunctional Garden Rake
This study rake is cleverly designed to provide you with three tools in one modular rake. Begin by removing any leaves from the main 76cm (30-inch) rake. Next, use the narrower shrubrake to remove leaves from the borders of your plants. Finally, grab the raked piles with the handy 28cm (11/inch) detachable grabpers.
Light work Garden Rake
This garden rake is extremely lightweight thanks to its tubular aluminum handle. This allows you to continue leaf tidying much longer than with a heavy wooden-handled rake.
This model is a great way to save money on buying separate leaf grabbers and shrub rakes. You will also be able to store it more easily. However, you will need to adjust the rake every time you use it for another task. This can be tedious.
GARDEN TRADING HAWKESBURY HAND RAKING
The best handheld rake for small tasks such as weeding or clearing flowerbeds
This handheld model is small in size, easy to use and can reach tight places that larger models cannot.
You don’t need a bigger rake if you have one and are looking for something that can be used for more specific tasks. The rake’s compact size and lightweight will be a great tool for pottering around the garden.
It’s much easier to store because it’s so small. You can hang the handle on a hook or peg by the smart leather loop at its end.
It is simple to use
This Wolverine-like tool acts as an extension of your hands and can be used to clear out beds or prepare soil for new planting.
