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.

Wheelbarrows

Many variations of the garden wheelbarrow have appeared over the years, but most of the wheelbarrows you see displayed in big box garden centers these days are actually modeled after a contractor's wheelbarrow - sloped metal sides designed to haul cement.

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.

Wheelbarrow Disadvantages

Garden Carts

Garden carts have either two or four wheels. Depending on the style, the wheels may be tall and thin with spokes, similar to bicycle tires, or be short and wide like those on a wheelbarrow. The body of a classic garden cart is made from wood panels reinforced by a metal frame, but many of today's models are made from metal or thick plastic. Some models have a fixed front panel, and removable panels on the sides. Others have flat beds with no sides at all.

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.
