If you're thinking of using a landscape rake, they don't work well for leaves. You'll just wreck your lawn. What kind of leaf blower are you using? Handheld blowers are useless, and backpack units aren't much better. I have a 5hp Little Wonder walk-behind that works pretty good, although I have to make three passes over the fall so the leaves don't get too thick.
If you have a lot of lawn to clear, you might consider a three point hitch mounted blower. They start around three grand.
