Burgon & Ball Megga Leaf & Dirt Collector £14.99 + £4.99 delivery
Sturdy plastic giant garden dustpan with integral handle and clip-on detachable rake. Rake has a scraper on the back for collecting small debris. Dimensions: Pan length 161∕2in (42cm), width 15in (381∕2cm), depth 4in (10cm). Rake length 131∕2in (34cm), width 81∕4in (21cm).
This is excellent for clearing fallen leaves trapped in and around shrubs and under overhanging plants. Dustpan scoops up well and carries a fair load, but not as much as others on test. You have to bend so it can be tiring on the back. It’s excellent for detail tidying of all types of debris – the rake is particularly good at shifting the likes of prickly holly leaves that cling annoyingly to the grass.
A handy tool for smaller volumes of leaves and debris from awkward places.
