Equipment for moving things in the garden

Almost every garden job involves moving things – whether it’s carrying tools, moving plants and bags of compost, or taking weeds or cuttings to the compost heap.

Twin wheeled barrow
Have a range of carrying options that are comfortable to use for different jobs:

  • You can carry small tools using an organiser belt or apron to leave your hands free and secateurs can be carried in a holster.
  • A flexible rubber bucket with two handles will carry cuttings and other debris, or tools. It is easy to carry against your body.
  • A garden cart with an aluminium frame allows you to carry long tools and hand tools with smaller items in its tray. It also holds a refuse sack. The cart can be pushed without the need to bend and can be folded for storage.
  • A twin-wheeled metal barrow with a pram handle can be helpful if you have problems bending, reduced strength, or use one hand. 
  • A folding hand truck/sack trolley is a lightweight trolley for moving heavy objects around with minimum strain. The sack wheels and garden truck converts from a trolley or sack carrier into a truck with an extra long handle for easier pushing.
