Removing acorns from driveways and lawns. We have a petrol driven leaf sweeper which is wonderful for leaves but wont touch the acorns.



Employ a squrrel or two? sorry can't help can you sweep them? with a yard brush i mean, not much help sorry!

Hello Oakgirl, Wagger and i are on the same wavelength. try using a tine rake as you would for leaves. think of the exercise as a bonus.

Dustpan and brush. Could try fixing dustpan or its larger equivalent to a long handle and pushing hand. Keep a few in a jar with damp moss and watch them sprourt . Mighty Oak Trees from tiny acorns grow.

Wet/dry Shopvac baby! I use it around my pots to clean out leaves and debri. I told my friend about this trick and she laughed at me, but it works really well!
