Here’s what they had to say.
Get rid of fallen leaves
Fall is synonymous with leaf cleanup, and that usually means raking. According to most yard-care professionals Wirecutter consulted in its test of leaf rakes, a sturdy steel-tined model is the way to go, for the combination of durability and leaf-grabbing “spring” of the tines. Jackson and Ames are two common brands with good reputations. Their 2-foot-wide models cover a lot of lawn fast and are built to endure: one of the test rakes lasted for eight seasons.
If you have a big lawn or a lot of trees, the Worx WG520 Turbine Leaf Blower is a user-friendly top performer from Wirecutter’s leaf blower review. It’s about as powerful as a gas blower, but requires far less maintenance, is more compact and is much lighter and more maneuverable. The only downside is that you have to plug it into an outlet.
