Leaf Bag Holders
It Yard Clean Up Time
Every fall and spring it's yard clean up time.
Got Leaves? I do, lots of trees and lots of leaves.
I really don't mind the raking, I kind of enjoy it. It's putting all those leaves in the bag that's a killer. Trying to hold the bag in one hand or laying it down and holding it with my foot while sweeping in the leaves and only getting half in that drives me nuts. Getting leaves into bags can be annoying enough to test anyone's patience. Bending and trying to hold it while putting the leaves in, heck we only have two hands.

Holding The Bag
I appreciate anything gizmo or gadget that makes my life easier. When I first saw these I thought "I HAVE to have one" with the amount of debris and leaves that I have to pick up numerous times a year.
I have to say that I really was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked and it actually has a few different uses.
So who's left holding the bag, not me! And I don't have my hubby calling me to help him either.
You can also use it to hold your cans or plastic for recycling in your garage. You won't have those bags flopping over with cans rolling around your garage. Throw in your cans and when it's full or on garbage pick up day, pull it out and put it out.
They are inexpensive so having one or two around is definitely a plus.
Do You Hold Your Bags?
I really think that a leaf bag holder or loader is a must for any gardener. It has many benefits and over all just makes your gardening and yard clean up so much easier. You can also use it for your weeding since it is light enough to be portable. Just take it with you as you weed and clean, throw the debris in the bag and you are set to go. No more dragging that bag with you.
They hold your bag upright without it blowing in the wind or collapsing while you are trying to put leaves, weeds or debris into the bag. When it is full simply remove the from the stand , tie and discard.
I like this one for it's simplicity and it's so easy to use. Just pull it open and set it by using the side bolt and you are ready to fill it. It folds flat when not in use which is a big plus for me because I have enough "stuff" taking up space in my garage as it and certainly don't need anything else.
Clip it in and you are ready to go with this handy dandy caddy. Easily folds down flat for easy storage.
Again this is all about simplicity, it doesn't have to be complicated to work well. This bagger stakes into the ground holding it in one place for those extra heavy loads. Just push the stakes into the ground with your foot, pull the round top up to hold the bag and wa la, you are set to go. I like that the top folds down and doesn't take up space in the garage, we have ours hanging on the wall.
We used it as a garbage bag for a BBQ we had and it worked great for keeping all the garbage in the bag and no one knocked it over.
Sturdy and durable holds your standard size lawn bags.
The leafmate is a different take on holding and bagging your leaves. It's more like a funnel which I like that it is bigger at the top to catch those extra leaves falling off the rake. You slip it into your lawn bag and the sturdy sides holds it open. Once you have filled it, simply pull it out and your bag is ready to be tied and thrown to the curb. Collapses down flat for storage. This has received great reviews.
Collapsible with no sharp edges to rip or tear bags.
So glad I don't have to pick those up!
