With all the "green" buzz words going around these days, why not take a look in your own garage?
Think about the hundreds of people in your neighborhood alone who fire up their weed eaters, lawn tractors, or leaf blowers each day during the summer. In some cities, leaf blowers have even been outlawed because of their loud noise. Since this started happening however, most leaf blower companies have started making models which are much quieter and run at extremely less decibels. But still, think of all that pollution going into the air just in your neighborhood, now take that times millions! While leaf blowers are nice and help move all the leaves into a nice pile, you still have to pick them up somehow and bag them. Why not combine the two steps into one with a lawn sweeper? Better yet, why not start using a push lawn sweeper and be a little greener these days?
There are three main types of sweepers which are:Powered - this runs on either gasoline or electricity, hand powered - this is propelled by the person using it and towed - this is connected to whatever vehicle will be used to go over the lawn.
If the yard is large it is easier and less time consuming to use the towed lawn sweeper as opposed to the other types. If the yard has many trees a powered sweeper will work best. The hand powered sweeper works best for small yards with few leaves.
Many sweepers can be used on concrete, decks and patios along with many other surfaces. Depending on the climate sweepers can be used all year long which makes them an affordable piece of equipment as compared to units that can only be on specific surfaces or at certain times of the year. Width is another option to consider. The larger the width the less passes it will take to cover the lawn but if the yard has a lot of trees or odd angles a wide width sweeper may be hard to maneuver. The final consideration is weight. If there are steep grades or drop-offs in the yard a lighter sweeper will be easier to handle.
