My favorite garden tool for spring

I’ve been getting some questions about my new favorite hand-tool for prepping my beds this spring. Helen’s toy rake turns out to be the ideal size to reach between wispy perennials and ground cover roses and the like.

It has just enough extension to reach to the back of a 5-6′ bed.

The best part is, once I show her what I’m doing to gather the redwood leaves without damaging the plants, Helen has so much confidence about helping me, because her special tool is just the thing for the job!
