Why You Need a Skateboard to Garden


There it is. Sitting in your garage or basement, left over from your son’s teen years. Or maybe you saw one really cheap at a yard sale or consignment store. It’ll provide some extra help while you work in your yard…It’s time to brush off that old skateboard! Use it to cart around awkward things like recycle bins and potted plants. You can also use it to sit or kneel (carefully!) on while you are weeding or cultivating trim along a sidewalk or driveway.

But we urge you—please make sure that the skateboard is sturdy before you use it to move anything, especially on an incline.
