Years ago I saw a soft (like rubber) tined rake that could be used to gently remove leaves from a bed in the spring without damaging the emerging plants. Now that I have use for one, I can't find one anywhere-does anyone know what I'm talking about and where I could find one?
I havent seen a rubber one, but I use my daughters old 'play' rake. Its small and plastic-bought it at the toys r us store years and years ago :). I like that it is so narrow I can rake around my perrineals and not damage them.
I have a Martha Stewart rake from Kmart. I've had it for years. It is about 8 inches wide and has metal tines. I use it for all my raking and it does a good job around plants. I found this at Kmart's web site and it has plastic tines.
