Rakes can be used at home for various clearing and gardening tasks. They can also be used in industries such as agriculture and landscaping. If you were to look up the definition of rake in the dictionary you might get something like this:
A tool that consists of a pole-like structure with a toothed crossbar or fine tines that will be tied to the end of the pole. The rake is often used to push or brush together cut grass, loose soil, gravel or debris.
Raking leaves from gardens and paths is easier if you use a leaf rake, sometimes called lawn rakes. These are generally what a lot of people think of when they hear rake.
The tines, which is the official name for the teeth of the tool, tend to fan out from the bottom of the pole, usually connected together with a crossbar, often made out of metal.
Various rakes can be used for levelling ground materials, such as tarmac rakes, asphalt rakes, and landscape rakes.
In gardening and landscaping, you often need to level or grade a ground surface material, to prepare it for things like laying or seeding grass, laying paths, or building a shed.
Moreover, the type of surface you want to level will determine which rake is most suited to the job. The ground surfaces that some rakes can be used to level include soil, bark, pebbles, gravel, and tarmac.
