I bought a plasic based wheel barrow and it lasted a few month pre the base cracking,
I only used it for soil/ compost (no bricks etc) a complete waste of money. Mad

But among the best tool has tobe my spade/fork both "D" handles and stainless steal, ive had both for 30 plus years,

and i did buy an old fork / spade & pitch fork to use for the inner section of a gate i made for the house we had when we lived in the uk, the people who bought the house asked if i'd leave the gate as they thought it looked so country, those three tools cost me 3 total from a car boot
they all had had a life time of use but i thought they'd finsh that life span as a decorative veg patch gate inner.

Hi there,

Speaking of garden rubbish there might be a lot of surprises once you decide to clear it out. So a couple of years ago I hired a company to help me dispose of my garden waste and you won't believe what kind of crazy stuff they found in the back yard: from shoes and household items to car and bike parts. I mean they did an amazing job. So if you ever need garden clearance check out:
