The 7 Best Garden Carts

Whether you’re growing lush flowers, delicious veggies, or just tidying up your backyard, a garden cart can take your green thumb game to the next level. The best garden carts are durable, easy to maneuver thanks to sturdy wheels and handles, and the right shape and size to hold all your gardening essentials.

When choosing the best garden cart for you, you’ll want to consider how rough the terrain in your yard is, and what kind of things you want to haul. Each of these picks has large wheels for easy portability in the great outdoors, but some have pneumatic tires that offer better shock absorption on uneven surfaces like gravel or dirt. And as far as hauling goes, a sturdy steel cart with removable sides is ideal for lugging around shovels, rakes, and other unwieldy items, while a wipe-clean a wheelbarrow or garden dump cart is great for transferring loose soil and mulch. Also, if bending over to tend to your garden is rough on your lower back, you can opt for this creative solution: a cart with a built-in stool to make yard work more comfortable.

No matter which style is right for you — from wheelbarrows to steel mesh or fabric wagons — these are the best garden carts on Amazon that will hold all the tools and accessories you need to make your garden grow.

1. The Fan Favorite & The Best For Storage

With over 15,000 reviews and an impressive overall rating on Amazon, this collapsible garden cart is a favorite with shoppers. The large-capacity garden wagon features an adjustable handle, heavy-duty frame, and durable fabric that’s easy to clean and resistant to UV rays and mildew, so it’ll last for a long time to come. Best of all, when not in use, the wagon folds up to just 8 inches thick and comes with a carrying case for convenient storage. In addition to the roomy interior, there are two mesh cup holders where you can stash extra necessities and drinks to keep you hydrated while working in the yard. However, the tires aren’t pneumatic, to it’s better for relatively flat yards, and since the cart is made from fabric, it may not be the best for hauling loose soil. The wagon comes in six colors, including black, red, and green.
