Tool Time: yard cart
In one of my spring garden columns in The Sun, I gave a list of my favorite garden tools, and I included a garden cart. Smaller than a wheelbarrow and easier to maneuver, it is perfect for carrying tools, something to drink and garden waste.
Here's a look at a couple of carts that you can find at Sam's Club this summer, or at Lifetime.com.
This Yard Cart (SRP: $179.98) serves as a heavy-duty wheelbarrow that converts to a towable yard trailer in a matter of seconds. It can be pulled behind all types of lawn tractors, and is great for transporting large loads of topsoil, lumber and building materials.
This new wheelbarrow (SRP: $89.99) features a patented design that distributes more weight to the wheels and less to the user, helping to lighten the load when wheeling potting soil, flowers, yard supplies and garden tools.
Both the Yard Cart and Wheelbarrow feature tubs made from 100 percent recycled material.
