This Suncast model takes a “bucket” approach to gardening. It’s a particularly useful wheelbarrow for two important tasks: Spreading mulch or soil (in lieu of carting bags around) and weeding/deadheading large gardens where you quickly end up with a trashcan worth of debris to cart away. It’s a great gardener’s friend for those situations where a more traditional design isn’t as helpful.

Marathon Residential Yard Rover
The Marathon Rover is a traditional wheelbarrow with a twist: It has a single handlebar up front. While this makes pushing the wheelbarrow a little more complicated, it’s handy when you need to pull your wheelbarrow to a certain location. If you prefer pulling to pushing (sometimes easier when going uphill), or your unique landscaping requires a lot of extra maneuvering to get the wheelbarrow in place, this feature could prove useful.
