Make Your Own Garden Cart

Many gardeners fondly remember, and may still own, the original Model 26 Garden Way garden cart. This revolutionary cart made hauling soil, mulch, and other materials much easier than using a wheelbarrow. Although Garden Way has long been out of business, a number of similar garden carts are on the market. But if you're handy and want to save a little money, why not build your own!

Herrick Kimball is passionate about garden carts, and he's written a book, Anyone Can Build a Whizbang Garden Cart, that guides you in the process. Kimball estimates the cost of materials -- some salvaged, some new -- is about $200. His carts are lighter in weight than commercially available ones.

Kimball is so zealous about helping people build their own garden carts that he has created a blog where he answers questions and clarifies points in the book. To check out Kimball's blog and get more information about the book, go to: The Whizbang Garden Cart Blog.
