I have a lot of little twigs & sticks in my yard from the winter. Small enough don't want to bend over & pick them all up, yet I want to get them picked up so not mowing them into small pieces and having to walk on all of them. Is there a method to get them picked up an easy way? Thought about one of those small lawn rakes, but figured the twigs/sticks would jam/ pick them up. Any thoughts ? f3c21b09583870699f0952ef06340510.jpg

It may not be allowed in your county or subdivision, but burning works.

Oh, I forgot the disclaimer.

 

Don't do it.

Yeah, that's what I plan to do once I get them picked up, but have to find a way to pick them up first

Me too.

I figure less effort to re-sharpen blades than bend over for every twig.

Cyclone Rake, although even that doesn't work as well as I'd like with the yard being soft this time of year. The front tires push a lot of the little sticks into the ground before the mower deck can pick them up.

I use mt estate rake to wind row to sticks from my yard, too.

I got 2 large oak trees and last year they had a lot of acorns.

had to go over the yard twice and it wind rowed them.

when you say pick up do you mean get caught in the wheels? Or do you mean that they won't get caught & will windrow them?

Maybe a E-Z rake would work if you can find one.

The sticks get caught in the wheels!

We had a big ice storm and it destroyed 6 elm trees in our old front yard. I picked up the small stuff with a push mower and bagger on the lowest setting
