In most of the country, now is garden prep time, when tons of soil, compost, and other amendments are incorporated into beds and borders. Getting the garden ready for planting is some of the most physically demanding work of the gardening year, and without the proper tools, it can take a real toll on the body. That is why every gardener needs a good garden cart or wheelbarrow. Count on one of these to keep you moving all the way to fall cleanup.

The Seymour children’s wheelbarrow allows young gardeners to get their hands dirty and help out. The poly tray is corrosion-proof, and the solid rubber wheel lets them steer it through any terrain. Adults gardening in tight spaces will also find the compact size useful.
