We have a large patio that was a job to sweep I would usually end up washing it down with the garden hose. I ordered this broom this spring and it makes short work of the job and is much easier to use than any other outdoor broom. Thought some of you might like to know about this time saver it now takes me a fraction of the time I use to spend cleaning the patio. I will be using it on sidewalks and the driveway when needed. I am thrilled with this broom!!!

Looks kind of like a cross between a broom and a leaf rake. Be curious to know how well it holds up. Smiling

Oh, I'd never heard of that but it reminds me of a push type broom that we had many years ago that had stiff coir-like bristles. I think it would be awesome for sweeping hard surfaces outdoors!

They say it holds up well. I use it just like you would a broom in the house in other words I do not push it but sweep with it just like you would a floor in the house. The website I posted might have a video.

I recently saw it in a Menards ad.

I bought one I think 3 years ago and it is still hanging in but getting a bit tired (some of the bristles have fallen out). But, I often leave it out in the weather (rain and sun) which likely hasnn't help it. I love it and when it gives up the ghost I'll be on the look-out for a new one. Got mine at a local flower show for $20.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
