What Is the Best Lawn Rake for Your Garden Type?

Raking through your lawn is one of the best ways to keep it in prime condition. It helps to remove moss and detritus from the grass, giving it more room to grow and breath, preventing the risk of lawn diseases.

In this blog post, Lawnmowers Direct outlines why this is the best lawn rake for your garden.

Best lawn rake for very small lawns

For very small lawns in urban locations and courtyards with grass, the best lawn rake may be the traditional hand rake.

For small areas with narrow and tight areas to manoeuvre, sometimes the old-fashioned method of raking the grass by hand is the best option.

Although this method of raking the grass is physically laborious, for small areas it is more effective than enlisting the help of machinery and will do the intended job just as well.

Best lawn rake for small lawns

Raking your lawn by hand is a time consuming and laborious job if it’s considered anything other than very small, but luckily there’s garden machinery that can do the job for you.

Electric lawn rakers are the best lawn rake to remove the moss and detritus quickly and easily from small lawns, although this could still be done with a hand rake if you’re feeling keen!

A good option for smaller lawns is the Flymo Compact 3400 Electric Lawnrake. This machine is ideal for removing thatch and moss in smaller areas so the grass can breathe and absorb essential moisture.

This electric lawn rake has a compact design making it perfect for smaller and tight spaces in the garden. The ability to adjust the working height of the machine through the single level height adjustment system means it can be used in a variety of conditions and is very versatile.

Best lawn rake for medium to large lawns

If your garden is more sizable, you want a lawn rake that can cover greater sized areas with ease and speed. The Bosch ALR 900 Electric Lawn Raker is a powerful lawn rake with a 900W powerdrive system designed to remove moss and detritus from small and medium sized lawns with ease.

When using this lawn raker, the debris raked from your grass is blown into a collection box by a powerful jet, known as the “jet-collect” system, for a smooth and convenient raking experience.

The 32cm width of this lawn raker makes it easy to cover ground, without being too big to reach awkward areas of the lawn. This, alongside the lightweight 9.4kg design makes this machine easy to use and manoeuvre in almost every garden type.
