16 Unique Yard Tools That Will Change Your Gardening Forever
Raking leaves is a cruel, terrible, and exhausting duty that I normally put off until Spring, when I get to rake up wet, smelly, dog feces-filled leaves, only to reveal a repulsive mixture of moosh and death that was once referred to as a lawn. On the positive side, because all that's left is dirt and weeds, it makes mowing the lawn a lot easier with the help of hi-tech garden tools. This year's autumn clean-up will be made a little easier with the help of these unique yard tools.
The easy leaf bag loader, one of the best unique yard tools, is just a large foldable sheet that you can rake your leaves onto. Once the tarp is full of leaves, just bend the sides of the tarp to fit it into the leaf bag and drop all of the leaves into it. With the simple leaf bag loading tarp, you can fill a full bag in about a minute.

The gutter downspout leaf filter is a device that you may install within your gutter and on top of the downspout to divert rainwater from your gutters to the ground. The leaf filter allows rain to pass through while keeping leaves out of the downspout, saving you from having to clean it out in the spring.
The camel is a convenient way to transport large sacks of soil, pebbles, or mulch that would otherwise be slung over your shoulder. The Useful Camel attaches to the top of any bag and transforms into a handy handle that makes it easy to move big bags wherever they're needed. Alternatively, you may get a wheelbarrow.
The garden leaf sweeper allows you to sweep up all of the leaves in your yard by just running your sweeper over them. It's similar to mowing your lawn, however, it's not actually cutting your lawn; instead, it's simply sweeping your lawn to remove all the leaves.
At least once a day, a new branch falls into my backyard. They can be little or half the size of the tree. The jaw saw is effectively your own personal living saw, capable of cutting through almost anything. Perfect for halving tree limbs so they may be readily transported into your neighbor's yard after they fall from your tree, cutting down a small forest, or simply removing a few trees or branches on your property.
When you've had it with bagging leaves, the leaf shredder could be your new best friend. Place a bag on the bottom of the leaf shredder/mulcher and just throw in your leaves, which will be shredded or mulched and thrown into a bag for you to trash once full.
Maybe you're too broke to buy power tools, you'd want to get a workout while doing yard work, or you're just a greenie who wants to save the planet by not polluting the environment by not using gas yard tools. Your arms power the manual pocket saw, which is a miniature chainsaw. It's just a chainsaw blade with two handgrips attached to it. You may even use it to trim some rather tall tree branches by tying long ropes to the ends and slinging them over the branch.
The extended reach tree trimming saw may be more up your alley if you don't feel like pruning your branches with your own two arms utilizing the manual pocket saw. The telescopic pole of the long-reach saw can reach up to 14 feet in height, making it ideal for trimming lower (but still rather high) tree limbs.
