Picking a garden rake isn’t hard – it really boils down to what you intend to use it for. Most gardeners I know own more than one garden rake. The tines (teeth) of garden rakes can be made of rubber, plastic or metal. Traditionally, most metal garden rakes are used on lawns for sweeping up garden leaves. I find that plastic garden rakes tend to break with annoying regularity so they aren’t really good for heavy use. Rubber garden rakes work well on concrete but metal rakes work best on grass.
The other consideration to think about is how wide you want the rake to be. The wider width garden rakes will be harder to use in amongst garden beds or you’ll be raking up more than just leaves! As with most things, buy the best that you can afford and garden maintenance will be less of a chore and more of a joy.
