We got hit by the Washington, IL Tornado a couple weeks ago, and although our house was damaged bad enough we will be out of it for a few months while it is repaired, at least we have something left to repair. One thing many of us have pondered is how on earth do we get all the debris out of our yards. We have picked up all the big stuff, but there are tons (literally) of little pieces of wood, glass, shingles, fiberglass, etc. Does anybody have any experience with a similar situation? I wondered if I could windrow it with one of those mini hay rake/dethatchers and then pick it up with a sweeper. Has anybody used one of those and if so, do they only work for grass or could they pick up light debris?
