I haven't had a lawn to speak of in my current home, but am having it sodded with Empire Zoysia in the next couple of weeks. I'll need to clean up oak leaves, twigs and acorns in the front yard on an ongoing basis.
Paul Tukey's Organic Lawn Care manual suggests a bamboo rake for dethatching, but I'm not sure that is appropriate for this. I'm wondering what a bamboo rake offers that is different than, say, a plastic fanned rake, or a metal one for that matter (I already have a metal one).
What type of rake is appropriate?
I'll have to go out of my way a bit to get a bamboo rake, but I'll happily do so if that is the right tool; I just want to know why.
