    i always thought that these were for the kids to use. but alas, they are for us grownups - a SHRUB RAKE!
    how did i ever live without one? if you don't have one, go out and git er done.

    Consider the shrub rake. They are an 8†or 10†wide small rake which looks somewhat like a kid’s toy. Don’t underestimate the usefulness of this small tool. It can be used effectively for preparing the bed edge near the edging for more mulch. The shrub rake is a good option for raking dog dug dirt back into the hole with minimal damage to the turf surrounding the hole. The small rake is designed to rake out leaves and debris from under and around bedding plants and shrubs. It works well for this but also is very useful for a variety of small rake jobs where a bow rake is too aggressive and a leaf rake is too wide and soft.

    i really don't know what you mean by that but i'll assume that you live in a shitty apartment and don't know what lawn work is.

    If my bow rake gets too aggressive, I slap it around a little bit and it's OK again for a while.
