It seems everyone has a container garden on the deck or patio these days, and gardeners are growing everything from flowers to vegetables to trees and shrubs in containers. While containers are great for their versatility, working with them can be a pain in the back. Large containers are heavy, and moving them around on a deck or in and out from winter storage can be difficult.
Now there's a new product available that can help ease this burden. The PotLifter is a device that features 2 metal handles connected by nylon straps. The straps wrap around your container and buckle together. As two people pull up on the handles (one on each handle), the straps cinch around the pot to secure it and make it easier to lift. The PotLifter can handle up to 200 pounds and has a lifetime guarantee.
