Garden carts – When it’s time to start hauling mulch, move potted plants and get raked leaves to compost bin, one garden cart or wagon is an effective solution for transporting materials. Major landscaping projects require a heavy-duty trailer or truck, capable of carrying stones, large plants or bulk material for your creative design efforts. Determine your next landscaping and gardening needs before investing in a wagon or cart, then try one out at your garden center before purchase.
A garden vehicle having two wheels, a hopper for carrying cargo, and a handle to push and guide trolley. Wheel size varies among designs. Wagons with small wheel sit low to ground, and typically have a small funnel of molded plastic or metal. Design with large bicycle-type wheels are typically constructed of a metal frame with wood siding and jumps at bottom. Garden carts have four wheels, with two fronts at a bar or shaft attached to a pull handle. Body is typically made of metal. Some look like a child’s little red wagon while larger, landscape-scale vehicles have built-up side walls or rails.
