Here is my situation,
the road I live on was recoated with a tar/ gravel combo this fall. As a result the front lawn is covered with 1/4" gravel . I normally hand rake the front yard ( 90' x25' ), to wake up the lawn, but with all the gravel,(at least 10' in) i thought something mechanical would be in order.
rent a power broom for the day @$50 then clean up the mess by hand ( shovel into trailer )
buy a lawn sweeper http://www.tractorsu...er-104677299--1
that should pick up the rocks and spruce up the lawn from winter. It could also be used for general cleanup around in the back (1/2 acre) during the summer and fall.
The only thing I'm not sure of is will the sweeper pick up the rocks ? is it strong enough for that? Will it be able to clean up the lawn from the winter or will I need to borrow the neighbors dethacher and run it through the lawn first?
Any suggestions will be appreciated, Tom
