Along with cozy sweaters and pumpkin-flavored everything, one of the best parts of fall is watching the leaves change colors — that is, until they all start falling in your yard. If you’re already dreading the process of removing pesky leaves from your lawn, you may want to invest in the ReLeaf Leaf Scoops, as thousands of Amazon shoppers say these handy gardening tools make cleaning up your yard so much easier.
Raking is a backbreaking task on its own, but the process of bagging up the leaves is often the most time-consuming and grueling part. Luckily, these clawlike scoops can help you remove leaves and other debris in half that time. Customers say the oversized design allows you to scoop up more than double the amount of leaves than you would if you were just using your hands, so you’ll have to bend over less.
They also love that the durable plastic scoops keep their hands protected from any sharp objects like needles and thorns. Even better, the lightweight handheld rakes are ergonomically designed so they are super comfortable to hold for long periods of time. With details like that, it’s easy to see why the leaf scoops have become an Amazon bestseller with more than 1,600 five-star reviews.
“I have [a huge] lot of trees. I bought these to save my life, and they literally have,” raved one shopper. “On Sunday, I spent five hours to bag eight bags of leaves. I bought these, received them, and used them on Wednesday. I spent 1.5 hours bagging eight bags of leaves! Same yard, same side of the house, as I did the work on Sunday. All that changed was adding ReLeaf into the equation. These claws are indispensable if you have trees.”
And it’s not just homeowners that love the handheld rakes. Many landscapers and professional gardeners use them as well. “We have a landscaping business that generates a lot of debris, particularly when trimming hedges,” wrote one reviewer. “The scoops are sturdy and comfortable to use. [They’re] an inexpensive way to increase our team's efficiency by allowing them to pick up significantly more debris. They also come in handy for distributing mulch and definitely for picking up leaves.”
It’s rare to see reviews this good — especially about something as basic as a rake, so if you’re looking to get your yard in tip-top shape this fall, the ReLeaf Leaf Scoops might be just what you need. Shop them for yourself below.
