It’s the time of the year (updated on 12/3)

Wife commanded to clean the leaves on the grass.

Go get something like this for $10 in Home Depot, made in USA, light and efficient - thanking to the 30" width and foam handle. Tines never get clogged; in case they did, a light shake cleans them all. Plastic and flexible tines are friendly to concrete sidewalk. Within few minutes, wife's command fulfilled, easily and beautifully, regardless how large your lawn is, and you still have lots of energy left for the happy night.

Never waste money on something like this:

I don't know what it is designed for, but certainly not for leaves. It is very narrow, about one foot only. To make it even worse, leaves can easily escape back and you have to repeat over and over to get any leaf at all. The metal tines get clogged almost after each and every stroke, and, once clogged, very hassle to clean. The metal tines also scratch sidewalk concrete. With such a wrong rake, you'll work a whole day and still cannot get any job done.

See how well the $10 rake works:
