Clever Gardening Technique
Small Garbage Bucket
Use a lightweight plastic garbage or paint bucket -- or 5-gallon plant container -- to haul around the yard when weeding or pruning. As the can fills, empty it into central disposal cans, and continue collecting. If you push the container around in your wheelbarrow, you won't strain yourself struggling with a heavy container, so your energy can go into further gardening.
