Hi, I'm Stan De Freitas, Mr. Green Thumb, for On Gardening. Rakes are, well one of the main parts of gardening. You need to go in there and help clear out leaves; you want to kind of rake through areas, this is a little small hand rake. Now, I know you've seen this with larger tools, and this one actually would attach to a larger handle, as well. This one, of course, is made with good quality construction, and it will last forever. Well, not forever, but if you get a good tool, it's going to last a lot longer than one of the cheaper ones. If you want to rake through your area to put in areas for putting seedlings in, a rake might be something that you'd use. If you're going to clear out areas for weeds, you're going to clear out some of those leaves, remember, a rake is a tool that you've got to have as one of your mainstays in gardening. So, if you have a rake like this you can simply, of course attach it, we said you can take it out. You can attach this to a large handle . We've got one that's about four feet long, but for the purpose of showing you here, we're simply going to show you that you can use it with this hand attachment, as well. Remember that a rake is going to be there for you. It's a good quality tool. You can use it with the torque on this particular area, if you're putting in let's say a small garden area, and that hand rakes are a good part of your good garden. For On Gardening, I'm Stan De Freitas, Mr. Green Thumb.
