    A blower does a good job. (Plus it's fun) They have reasonably priced ones for little jobs like this on Amazon.

    Dig them into the dirt and you have a perfect composter.

    For most vaccuums, you can choose the side you put the hose into: suck up stuff or blow out air. I use the blower for leaves. Works great!

    Use a blower first, then a final clean up by hand. Areas like this look fantastic at first, then start to collect debris. Good luck in your endeavor.

    So far Suellen is correct, the place was landscaped for sale, and it looked great at first. A blower seems like the obvious solution but the rocks are very lightweight. The leaves are somewhat impacted due to heavy rains after a windstorm. I think I will try using a garden rake to free up the debris and then try blowing them.

    That hard. I do all mine by hand picking It's time consuming but the rocks stay in place
