Wheelbarrows & Garden Carts
Cart any garden items with wheelbarrows designed to go the distance
Yard work can be a whole lot of exercise. After all, you have to mow and rake and weed and saw your way to a beautiful property. While it's probably not such a bad thing to get your heart rate up once in a while, some tasks are better left to handy tools. For example, toting logs or mulch across your property is a job that is best left to other devices. You don't want a strained muscle from trying to carry too much and you certainly don't want to run shovel after shovel of mulch back and forth all day. Luckily, there is a tool just for this task, and it is one that has been around for a long time. Wheelbarrows are the perfect easy-to-use garden companion that helps you clean up your mess without talking back to you.
Wheelbarrows haven't changed much in appearance since they were first invented. The concept is the same: a small cart mounted on top of a contraption that features a single wheel in the front and two sturdy legs in the back. The legs help the wheelbarrow stay put when you put it down and the wheel is perfect for precision steering. Most wheelbarrows offer a fairly large capacity that can hold a whole garden's worth of mulch or many branches from a fallen tree.
While wheelbarrows, like gardening gloves, haven't changed much over time, the newer models do have some pretty cool features. Lightweight metals make the wheelbarrows easier to lift and push, since you don't have to worry about the added weight of the cart when you are throwing mulch or concrete mix in for a trip across your yard. Some newer models of wheelbarrow also feature dump truck-style movement, allowing you to tip the contents of your wheelbarrow out without lifting the stable ground supports. This is super handy if you have a lot of soil to haul out of your composters and over to your garden bed. Collapsible and slim-line wheelbarrows can fit into even the tiniest of tool sheds, which means that small home living won't keep you from having an easy garden.
Wheelbarrows are useful for far more than toting landscaping materials or plant food bags. They make great hose holders when you just don't want to lug around all that hose by yourself. Likewise, wheelbarrows are a great place to mix concrete or slurry for back patio projects, and they wash out easily with a backyard hose. No matter what type of wheelbarrow you need, you are sure to find a make and model that will do the trick when you start your search at Sears. We have a great selection of affordable wheelbarrows that will help even the newest gardener clean up the yard in no time at all.
