Handy Use For Garden 'Car'

Sheila7863May 2, 2002

I can't remember what the darned thing is called - but they were selling them everywhere last year! It's a little green rolling garden seat about 12" tall with big wheels and has a lift-up lid storage compartment.

I have back and neuromuscular problems so I fall a lot and have difficulty carrying and bending. One day I was looking at my little "car" and got a brainstorm! I tied a rope through the front handle and voila! It is the coolest thing INSIDE the house too. I can sit a plant or other heavy object on it and pull it through the house! It's also handy for picking up objects as you walk through the house - you can leave the lid open and toss the objects inside as you pull it along. WELL worth the $20 or so I paid for it!

Hmmm, I've never seen one of these before--does anyone have a web link so that I can what this "car" looks like? How large is the capacity of the storage area?

That sounds really cool, was wondering if my son could drag one around behind his wheelchair. Where do you find them?

Around here it is called a "grasshopper" and can be found at garden centers, catalogs, etc for about $20.

For this old gardener, the little rolling garden car has made it possible for me to garden again. I can really scoot around on it. This winter, will bring into the house to use.

I have used a large red wagon in my garden for years. Why couldn't a small red wagon work for inside the house?
