Yard Wagon: What are your needs?

Updated on September 13, 2014

A sturdy yard wagon is essential for we older landscapers as well as for younger folks! ;-)

To do serious yard work, of just about any kind, you need a sturdy yard wagon; at least I do!

A small toy wagon, like in this photo, will not do. I have spotlighted below a specific recommendation. What do you think? I've also provided other options to consider. This lens was to focus on a 'tool' for home and garden use.

1200 lb Garden Cart - This is more like it. What do you think?

Now, this is a Yard Wagon, for sure! ;-)

This is what I will get when I get serious about working in my garden this fall, assuming my health will permit it. My neighbor has one pretty similar and it works really well. I need the larger tires and the good sized box. On the other hand, it does not need to be any larger for my relatively small area. I think this one is about right! ;-)

 

Will this wagon work for me this fall?

I appreciate your thoughts - my decision is not final yet - input always useful! ;-)

Will this wagon work for me this fall?

What do you really need to consider?

Each of us really needs to consider the purpose to which we will put a wagon and what kind of wagon we will need to meet that need. This will vary for each of us. I have very little storage space in which to keep a wagon, so that really limits my choices. What will you do?

Other yard wagon alternatives to consider - Do you have a preference?

Would having a work wagon help?

Do you enjoy working in your yard?

My yard, now, is so small I don't have room for a wagon. Wish I did!

I have to use my neighbor's wagon, because I have no storage area and my lawn is very small. So, for me, this lens is really a whimsical thing - wishing I could have a real wagon. I grew up on a farm, where I viewed the wagon as a work tool. Now, it would be nice to have one again. Maybe someday...

Thanks for Comments on this Lens

      If it doesn't work out as a wagon, you can always use it as part of your decor.

      Enjoyed the lens. I usually have an old Radio Flyer full of flowers and an old ladder to display more in my country garden.

      Takes me back to those days of childhood, but I'd gladly use one of these wagons if I had a yard.

      My only problem with a yard wagon is that it will likely be difficult for me to keep wither of my grandsons out of it or from them riding it down one of our hills here ...

      My husband just made me a yard wagon - I'm so excited! It's down in the basement right now just waiting for the wood stain to dry, and I can't wait to try it out this weekend. I hope you get the wagon of your dreams, too!

      I think I want a garden wagon myself now. I have a wheelbarrow but it isn't always steady and can get pretty heavy.

      We use two of these garden wagons at church hauling plants and even small trees into the sanctuary every week. Greatest investment we've made. When I get moved to my own land...I will have one for sure.

      I just love wagons and always stop to look at them. I get by with my wheel barrow. If you need to move a lot of material the big wagon looks good.
