A favorite garden cart?

jujustad(7B-8A)March 29, 2011

Do any of you have a garden cart that you really like? I would like to find one that I can roll up to bags of soil etc and flop 'em in instead of having to lift them high enough to get into my wheelbarrow. I hope to extend my gardening years by trying to be good to my back...in truth, that horse is already out of the barn, but it can't hurt to try and slow the downward spiral :)I have a small, level lot and a bunch of deck and containers. Maybe tarps would be the thing to do?

Thanks in advance!

If you have a small lot, I think your idea of a small tarp would be best. They can be folded and put away and as you say, you don't have to lift. And, they're cheap. Alternately, check the Lee Valley catalogue -- I think they have a cart that is low-slung especially for us seniors.

Hi Dotty,
The more I looked at carts online the more I came to the same conclusion about the tarp. I'm also able to make my own super heavy duty one because I had an upholstery biz at one time and still have the heavy machines. Maybe I can have a little garden tarp biz on the side if I come up with something
good? :) Thanks and Happy Spring
