The best...leaf-management tools

The Gardex Leaf Scoops were designed by someone who used to pick up leaves with a pair of garbage can lids.

Gardex Leaf Scoops
The designer of these oversize “sporks” used to pick up leaf piles with a pair of garbage can lids. “The eureka moment came when he carved teeth into the faces.” Leaf Scoops can pick up objects as small as acorns.

Snake Rake
This twisted yard tool “uses offset handles to save a raker’s back.” The lightweight shaft is height-adjustable, so every user can stand up straight, and a clip allows a quick pivot of the grip from right- to left-handed.

Worx TriVac
Looking to purchase a leaf vacuum, a blower, and a mulcher? This device from Worx “effectively combines all three.” A simple switch controls the different modes, “and the same impeller that moves the air chews up the leaves.”

Leaf Lugger
Eliminate the hassle of multiple bags. The nylon-mesh sides of this 8-by-8-foot super tarp “cinch up via an internal rope to haul up to 100 pounds.” Fiberglass stiffeners keep the tarp flat while you’re raking leaves onto it.
