The 7 Best Lawn Sweepers of 2022 – Towed & Push Lawn Sweepers


Popular mechanics; Courtesy Craftsman

If you long for the clean, tidy look of a yard free of grass clippings, leaves, and pine needles, consider a garden sweeper. These machines use long rotating brushes, like a vacuum cleaner, to “sweep up” small garden debris, storing it in a large hopper that can be emptied later. The bristles on these brushes are specially designed to be strong enough to direct debris into the hopper, yet soft enough not to damage your lawn. Lawn sweepers are usually towed behind a garden tractor, although some push models can be operated manually.

The best lawn sweepers

What to consider

The most important thing to consider when choosing a lawn sweeper is whether or not you should choose a towed or a push model. Although the tow options require you to do the least amount of manual labor, you must already own a lawn tractor or ATV to pull them. They are also generally larger than push models and will take up much more room in your garage or tool shed. Push sweepers might be more practical for those with small lawns, and although you have to manually push them yourself, this can actually make them more convenient to use. Without any tractors, hitches or fuel, just push your sweeper across the lawn and get to work.

You should also think about how much debris you plan to pick up and what you are going to do with it. If you have a large property and frequently empty your load, consider a model with a handle or rope that allows you to empty the hopper without getting off your tractor. This way, you simply dump into your compost or debris pile, dump quickly, and immediately get back to sweeping.

How we selected

When compiling this list of lawn sweepers, we scoured several leading lawn and garden review sites, and also drew on our own personal experience in the landscaping world. We also made sure to exclude any options that had frequent quality control or durability issues, which is why we could only find one push model that met our standards. We were also hoping to include an electric sweeper, but couldn’t find any models that received enough positive reviews to warrant a spot on our list. We’ve done our best to include a wide range of sizes and prices, so whatever your lawn size or budget, you should be able to find one that suits your needs.
