Rake Without the Ache

Leave a comment

Autum is slowly edging out summer and with the change in weather we can expect to be raking some leaves.  Remember these 5 tips when you are raking.

  1. Take frequent rests to give your body a break.
  2. Stretch during and after raking.
  3. Switch sides and hand positions so you rake from left and right.
  4. Change positions as often as you can.
  5. Lift with your knees and hold the load close to your body.

Take time to enjoy the crisp air and the crunch of leaves as you get your yardwork done.
