Re: Ratchet rake vs debris rake
If I were in your boat, I'd seriously consider going with an herbicide option. Hire a crop duster and it's taken care of. Or rent a pull behind sprayer from the co-op if it has sufficient height clearance.
I think if you just mow, without spraying, you are just going to make them angry and get more regrowth. Which you are then going to have to mow. If you keep mowing, sooner or later you'll get them killed off. But a brush hog/forestry mulcher/etc. is not going to be a do it once and be done option.
