Avid gardeners often have many tools at their disposal, ranging from protective gloves to garden plows. These tools may be exceptionally helpful but can be a real hassle to transport around the yard as you work. Instead of traveling back and forth between the garden shed and the yard consider using a garden trolley to transport everything you need with ease. These carts are designed to hold everything you need to garden. Tools, seeds, soil and more can be loaded up once and then rolled around to different parts of the yard. Some models include comfort features like a built-in seat or umbrella shade. They have slots and shelves to secure everything into place. Two to four wheels allow these carts to be rolled over both smooth and rough terrain. This guide covers the essential features of garden trolleys.
Models that feature a soil bin allow users to mix soil right on the trolley. Instead of hauling around a bucket or wheelbarrow, gardeners can mix soil, compost and fertilizer to the proper ratios with the bin built into the cart. Some models, such as the one from Suncast, have a sifter grate that keeps large chunks of dirt from entering the bin while mixing.
Multiple shelves allow users to place essential items like pots and garden shears in an easy-to-reach space. Some models have removable shelves which allow users to change the height of the interior space, making room for taller objects if needed.
Even large tools like rakes and brooms can be stores on many of these carts. Tool holes on the top of the cart allow users to slide long-handles tools into them, keeping them upright and within reach. Anything from a spray handle to a garden how can be safely secured within these tool racks.

Fiskars Garden Trolley
Fiskars has developed a smaller garden trolley designed to also function as a seat. Gardeners often have to bend down in uncomfortable positions to tend plants. The Fiskars trolley has a built in seat that is made out of soft foam. The seat pad can be removed and used as a garden kneeler. Underneath the seat is a storage compartment with a smaller storage caddy. This area can hold an assortment of hand tools. At the rear of the unit is an area where users can place a five gallon bucket (not included). A strap hols the bucket in place, acting as an additional storage compartment for soil or more tools. Users pull the garden trolley along using the nylon strap. While not as big as a full sized garden trolley cart, it is exceptionally convenient and comfortable to use.
