Types of Rakes for Your Lawn or Garden

By: Danny Lipford

There are several types of rakes available for your lawn or garden, and each one is used for a different purpose. Some of the most common types of rakes include:

  • Leaf Rake: These rakes can be made from either flexible metal or plastic tines with a metal or wooden handle for raking leaves or pine straw. They come in various widths, including extra wide ones for use on pine straw.
  • Bow Rake: These rakes have short, rigid metal tines and are used to smooth out soil in a garden or level ground on a construction site.
  • Shrub Rake: This narrow rake is perfect for distributing mulch around shrubs or in a garden where the space between plants is limited.
