Sturdy barrow

There are many different types of wheelbarrow on the market but there are few that can be recommended to disabled gardeners. Barrows that are lightweight tend to be made in less durable materials and better quality products tend to be heavy and difficult to move around.

This barrow, is well-made and has a bar-style handle, which is easier to use with one hand or if you have a weak grip. It has two wheels with a good sized tread and two rests attached to the handle.

Although this barrow is not the lightest, or easiest to manoeuvre, it has ample space for all your tools. It is relatively expensive at over £300, but it should be a good investment. The barrow comes in green and there is a larger model as well as this standard size barrow.
