Should you choose a one-wheeled wheelbarrow or two-wheeled model?

When it comes to wheels, thankfully there's only two options that you have to decide between - one or two wheels? As any avid gardener or builder is well aware, the traditional style of wheelbarrow has just one wheel at the front-and-centre of the design. This triangular design is incredibly easy to manoeuvre thanks to this strategic wheel positioning and allows you to quickly and effortlessly transport items from place to place. However, one of the downsides is that it requires a little extra strength and control to move effectively, so one-wheeled wheelbarrows are best left to the construction experts or seasoned gardening professionals.

Two-wheeled wheelbarrows on the other hand, come with (you guessed it!) two wheels at the front of the barrow providing extra stability which can come in handy for balancing heavy loads or items that are prone to moving as you transport them. Despite these advantages, something to bear in mind before you purchase one of these wheelbarrows is the fact that they can be difficult to operate on hills and also less effortless to manoeuvre, which could slow you down! However, what they lack in manoeuvrability, they more than make up for when it comes to easy operation especially for older people. Ready to pick the perfect barrow? Pair it with some additional gardening supplies to ensure you're prepared for any pest invasion, harvest period or weeding session!

Are steel wheelbarrows better than plastic wheelbarrows?

Now you know how many wheels you should opt for, how about the material? Wheelbarrows tend to be made from either metal or steel, but which one is better? Naturally, plastic wheelbarrows are more lightweight and therefore tend to be ideal for gardeners who fill them with similarly lightweight objects including soil, empty plant pots, gardening tools, weeds, and cut grass. Long-lasting and rust-resistant, plastic wheelbarrows can withstand being left in wet conditions for months and still provide you with a reliable wheelbarrow solution. The only disadvantages are that they can't handle heavy items like bricks and also tend to not fare so well in particularly hot or cold environments, so practical storage is a must-have!

This is where steel wheelbarrows can come to the rescue! Often used by builders and those in the construction or renovation trade, steel wheelbarrows make the perfect companion for hauling around heavy duty materials like timber, stones, cement, logs, and steel. Incredibly durable and versatile, you can get years of use from this type of wheelbarrow, but sadly they're not rust-resistant. Not to mention, they can also weigh an awful lot more than the lightweight, plastic alternative, so are best left to be used by those with some muscle!
