When faced with lugging plants, soil, other materials around the yard, wheelbarrows and garden carts are indispensable tools. As a means of transport, each has their advantages and disadvantages. Here are some side by side comparisons of their basic features, as well as some shopping tips if you find yourself in the market to buy one.
Traditionally, garden wheelbarrows were made of wood. They had one metal wheel in front, a stabilizing leg on each side in the rear, and upright sides that could be removed for dumping. Today's wheelbarrows benefit from advances in design and feature things like double wheels for increased stability and square-shaped trays for added capacity.
A cart with a low bed will be easier to get things in and out of than the deep tray of a wheelbarrow. Do you have trouble bending? A wheelbarrow may be easier to tip and dump. You should be able to easily pull or lift the weight of the cart/wheelbarrow when it's empty.

I think there are many stores that provide quality Lawn tools and mostly prices are same. But you can get these things discounted at Sears by using coupon codes as well. Sears always helpful for quality items with discounted prices. I have bought all of my home tools there from searching coupons from http://www.ezcouponsearch.com and similar other places.
