 raking large amount of cut grass

with two weekends of rain I cut grass that was over 16 inch, now I have a large amounts of clups of cut grass and long stans of it I cut in three long runs by running over it and making piles. Would a rock rake work to bring it one large pile.

thanks
roger

 raking large amount of cut grass

Roger, rather that raking the grass up; I run over it several times with the shoot guard up to spread the grass out as much as possible. After about four of five runs over the grass clippings, they get cut up into very small pieces and get spread out over a large area. I let the sun dry them out and run over them a few more times and the clippings are pretty much absorbed into the turf. The more you can spread the clippings out with the mower the better. I have a rock rake and in my opinion, you would be more prone to causing damage to the lawn. A rock rake is pretty rigid and I don't think it would be particularly effective as raking in this manor.
