Gardening tools, supplies and equipment are essential to making the various activities associated with it so much easier and faster. Small garden carts are on the top of the list for the most essential gardening tools for reasons discussed below. Suffice it to say that investing in a gardening cart will save plenty of time, effort and money in more ways than one.
Gardeners will most often invest in a wheelbarrow for the purpose of manually transporting various gardening tools and supplies as well as earthen materials like soil, rocks and gravel from one are of the garden to the next. In short, a wheelbarrow is a good investment for any gardener.
However, a wheelbarrow can also cause certain problems for the gardener of which the most notable is straining while carrying the load. Its basic construction means that the load of distribution lies behind the wheel and on the axel. As a result, the load places too much strain on the arms, shoulders and back that, in turn, means higher risks for muscle injuries.
This is where small garden carts come in. These are designed so that the load distribution is placed directly on the wheels and axels, thus, making it possible to exert significantly less effort to carry the same amount of weight as on a wheelbarrow. You can then spare your arms, shoulders and back the sore muscles that so often comes with using wheelbarrows.
And then there's also the fact that most small garden carts have additional features that are absent from wheelbarrows. These additional features make gardening so much more enjoyable because you spend less time transporting various odds and ends, thus, making it possible to enjoy the benefits of gardening. What exactly are these features?
First, even the most affordable gardening cart can be tipped upright so that heavy materials like large rocks can easily be loaded into it. In contrast, a wheelbarrow cannot be tipped upright, thus, making it more difficult to load heavy materials.
Second, most small garden carts have either drop-down sides or easy-slide panels. Such a feature allows for easier dumping of the load, which wheelbarrows do not have, by the way.
Third, garden carts also have compartments where gardening supplies and tools can be stored when not in use. Basically, you can enjoy the benefits of an all-in-one transportation-cum-storage unit. Add in the fact that you can actually use any gardening cart as a seat and you will want to have one for yourself, too.
Fourth, small garden carts also have dual bicycle tire wheels coupled with a wide, flat base. You will then have an easier time transporting heavy loads since the large and yet thin wheels ride smoothly over rough areas of the garden. Think of the time you can save transporting various garden supplies from one end of the garden to the next.
Gardeners have absolute need for small garden carts for the reasons mentioned above. These carts make it fast, easy and convenient to load, transport and unload garden supplies and tools, not to mention that these can actually be used as storage units and as portable seats.
