A sweeping decision

Not every broom is suitable to use outdoors. If you're trying to sweep away leaves and debris on concrete or another hard surface with a cheap broom, it could begin losing its bristles — not to mention they're typically smaller which means they require more brushing. On the other hand, proper outdoor brooms offer bristles with more strength to withstand rough surfaces and are typically a bit larger to move more debris with a single pass.

The Alpine Industries Push Broom reached the top of our list for a few important reasons. This large push broom has a wide width and strong bristles that can push dirt and debris away with ease. Its heavy-duty plastic block is designed so that it won't ever crack, warp or mildew. There's also a mid-grip foam wrap on the handle which helps provide comfort and extra control while you're sweeping. Then again, if you're on the hunt for a broom that can be used both inside your home and outdoors, you'll want to take a look at the AmazonBasics Heavy-Duty Broom. This model is strong enough to be used outdoors but small enough to work wonders inside your home as well.
