This year will be my second doing this yard. The customer wants her gum balls raked up. I was wondering if there is a better way to gets these gum balls up besides raking them or cutting down the tree.

I guess you're talking about those pita little spike gum balls from the gum trees. The only thing I can think to make it easier is blow them to one area and then rake them up. I have a couple of yards besides mine with them and I hate em. So I hope someone else might know a more efficient way.

Man I had to establish alot of edging at a home today and those things were all around the edges.I use a walk behind edger and I cussed those things all afternoon.
I'm gonna say it.You know me.....:) A pull behind sweeper will do a good job getting those up.
