A rake’s progress

Businessman Peter Burrell solves the problem of keeping gravel level

 

Gravel drives are a joy and a nightmare at the same time. A crunchy drive, according to The Independent’s Jeff Howell is something that most would have on their bucket list at a “dream home” but with one, you get the problem of weeds and moss and the need to rake constantly. Now, there’s a solution – The Gillhams Gravel Rake.

Created by Frankie Dettori’s manager, West Sussex based Peter Burrell, the Gillhams Gravel Rake – which was recently exhibited at The Royal Horticultural Show – is a simple device that can be used manually or attached to a vehicle. It is simple yet sturdy and made from wood and mesh and of it, racehorse trainer Brian Meehan commented:

 

“We rake the gravel areas in the yard at the end of every morning and since we have had the Gillhams Rake it has saved hours of labour and there is a better finish to the surface”.
