Kids’ sledsVadym Zaitsev/Shutterstock
How do you move weeds, pruned branches, rocks, and the like from your garden? No need to spend on a pricey pushcart or wheelbarrow that’s also heavy and unwieldy, especially on hills. Instead, repurpose your kids’ flying saucer sled. Attach a rope to one handle and you’ll have a sturdy sledge that pulls easily across grass and paths. If you have kids, come winter, this is one garden tool that will still find plenty of use. Check out more extraordinary uses for objects you have lying around at home.
If you have an old golf bag on wheels, use it to store and caddy long workshop or garden tools, which fit neatly in the main compartment, and hand tools, which can be clipped to the outside. The pockets hold screws and bolts, or seeds, shears, and other smaller items. And if you discover any tees inside one of those pockets, they can be put to use too. Wooden or plastic tees make great color-coded markers for newly seeded gardens.
