Lifetime Wheelbarrows makes light work of big projects

wheelbarrowsLook out the window, spring is here… time to get digging, planting, transplanting, and hauling… wait, hauling? Yup, you’re going to have to move all that compost, all those pavers and blocks, potted shrubs, soil, bags of fertilizer, mountains of mulch… the list goes on and on, but it all needs to be done, and let’s face it, packing it my hand just isn’t a viable option!

That’s where wheelbarrows come in to play. Sometimes called a “garden cart” or “garden wagon”, a wheelbarrow fills a much needed role in any backyard or landscaping project.

Wheelbarrows help carry more per load, and help carry even very heavy items. But that’s where traditional wheelbarrows fall short. Traditional wheelbarrows typically have one wheel at the front of the basket, leaving you to  life the weight of the load on the pivot point of the wheel. Sure, it’s easier than hefting the load on your back, but there’s got to be a better way!

That’s what the smart folks at Lifetime Products thought, too. So they tasked their engineers with designing a better wheelbarrow. The Lifetime Wheelbarrow is what they came up with, much to the relief of weekend warriors and backyard landscapers everywhere!

The Lifetime Wheelbarrow features two heavy-duty wheels to share the load – and reduce tipping (finally!). It also places the wheels right in the middle of your load. This balances the load and makes it easier to lift and MUCH easier to push. Lifetime also redesigned how you dump the load out of the wheelbarrow, give it a try, you’ll be impressed.

Of, and if you want to impress your friends even more, here’s a little information about how the word “wheelbarrow” came around. The word wheelbarrow is a compound word. It’s made by combining the words “wheel” (because it has a wheel - or two) and “barrow” from Old English bearwe (basket) or beran (to bear, to carry). Now you can impress your friends with your new Lifetime Wheelbarrow AND with the etymology of the word!

Now get back to work! ;)

Gliding with Grandpa
Still searching for that perfect Christmas gift to give your parents, grandparents,or your spouse? Here's an idea - how about a cozy Lifetime Glider Bench? Last year, I gave my Dad the Lifetime Glider Bench for Christmas. I purchased the original Lifetime Glider Bench because it matched the Lifetime Picnic Table they have in their back yard. (The Lifetime Glider Bench is also available in a Wood Alternative version that looks like real wood slats.) My Dad put his new Lifetime Glider Bench under a huge tree in the backyard at his lake house so he can sit under the shade and watch the lake. This summer when my family went home to visit, we all took turns at some point relaxing and gliding on the bench to watch the soothing waves on the lake, the crackling fire pit, or a friendly game of Cornhole. But, my favorite use was when...
