Gave our lawn a light rake the other day, I couldn't believe how much dead grass was on/in it. I've also got some climbing roses to put in around our Garden Arch.

Can't wait for the spring and summer.

Moved to a new house last year with a big lawn, purchased a ride on and a battery lawnmower for the road side verge.

Anyone have any experience of the rakes for the back of a ride on? dont fancy doing it by hand...

Ours isn't that big either mate, I'll have to rake it more often in the summer months. The lawn is looking a bit sorry for it's self atm, I'll get some lawn feed down in a few weeks.

Yep once raked it looks like it has been ploughed

I would wait a good bit yet to put feed down, April is a good time.

So I was very bored today so I gave the lawn a good rake with the atco attachment. Looks very good actually, a lot of dead grass gone!
