Thanks to the various leafblowers I’ve been testing, I now have several large heaps of leaves that need to be transported to the leaf heap. The thing about leaves is that they are very light but bulky and I find that if I fill it above the rim they tend to swirl out of the wheelbarrow as I move around the garden– which turns it into a tedious and timewasting process. There are solutions, like throwing a hessian sack over the barrow, but none are entirely satisfactory, which is why my eyes lit up when I spotted the Wheelbarrow Booster on the you garden website. Essentially a large bag which slots into your wheelbarrow (and stays open) it boosts the wheelbarrow’s capacity by as much as 300%. It can be used for any lightweight but bulky garden waste or lightweight mulches. No point in filling it with heavy materials – the barrow would be unmovable!
