Great Find At The Home Show

Postby Lisa3 » Oct 16, 2008 4:11 pm

I'm so new to gardening and my biggest task so far has been cleaning up our yard (it's been neglected for years!) I went to the International Home Show in Toronto last weekend and came across a gem I thought you might appreciate. You attach this tool called a "Shake" to your snow shovel and literally push your debris off your lawn! They were demonstrating on artificial turf at the show and I was skeptical that it would work on real lawn but everyone was carrying them around the show so I bought one.

Let me tell you - I will never rake again! What a great product! I don't know what other shows they'll be at but I know it's made in Canada and I found their website on the tool itself:

It looks like a piece of junk to me. Any tool with a handle that requires muscle power is hard work. Sometime necessary, but should be avoided if possible. That tool is about as useless as the Claw.

Thanks Lisa for the nice review of our product. Your post was sent to me from another customer who bought our product at the London show. You are among many customers that have enjoyed our product. It seems someone thinks this product takes work, well he's right but it is approximately 5 times faster than a leaf blower so if Mr. Durgan want to work harder, then go right ahead. At over $100+ each for leaf blowers Barnum was right. The Shake is the fastest and easiest rake ever made for Fall and especially spring clean up.

For recommending our product I will send you a second for thanks, please send me your contact information. Also I will offer 2 for one to anyone who identifys Lisa or the Canadian Gardening as their referral.

Thanks Again.

Sincerely
