AbstractA foldable rake implement (commonly referred to as a garden or lawn rake) suitable for smoothing the ground or gathering debris, such as leaves and grass clippings from the ground. The rake includes an elongated, preferably cylindrical, rod handle having a proximal end to be grasped by the user and a distal end. An articulated frame structure is attached to the rod handle proximate the distal end. The articulated frame has axes of articulation defining folding axes parallel to the rake rod handle about which the articulated frame articulates or moves between an unfolded position whereat the opposite sides of the articulated frame symmetrically project outwardly to opposite lateral sides of the rod handle and a folded position whereat the opposite sides of the articulated frame are moved toward each other and into generally mutual overlaying relationship. A plurality of spaced-apart tines are mounted to the articulated frame. An articulating device is associated with the rod handle and the articulated frame for selectively moving the articulated frame about the axes of articulation between the folded and unfolded positions.
