Greenworks has you covered with a range of tools that will make the fall yard cleanup a breeze. From mowing to leaf blowing to gutter cleaning, we've got everything you need to get your yard in tip-top shape before the cold winter months. Let's get started!

1. Leaf Blower

Clear off leaves, mulch, light dustings of snow and more with a leaf blower.

Perfect for removing built-up grime from your deck, walkways, exterior and more.

Our top pick: Greenworks 60V 3000 PSI Pressure Washer

Green team tip: There's a nozzle for every job -- make sure you're using the correct one to maximize cleaning power!

7. Dethatcher + Cultivator

A dethatcher removes thatch, while a cultivator loosens and churns soil.

Our top pick: Greenworks 40V 14" Cordless Dethatcher/Scarifier

Greenworks dethatcher

This compact and cordless dethatcher/scarifier provides effortless operation and maneuverability, while its 14” working path width makes quick work of any job.

Green team tip: Removing any thatch buildup before the first snow arrives is important since it can cut off oxygen and sunlight for your grass. Thatch is a thick layer of tangled organic matter just below the surface of the lawn -- and a telltale sign is brown-looking patches in your yard.
