What makes a great rolling garden scooter?
Trust me- I have always tended my garden and I have been disappointed by a couple of the gardening stool with wheels.
I would, therefore, advise you to keep the following things in mind;

To begin with, it must be able to move to all the corners of your garden so it’s important that it’s lightweight.
- Size of its front and rear wheels
On the same note, a rolling garden seat with big wheels will perform better since it’s easier to manoeuvre even in rough surfaces
- Does it provide for tools storage?
In addition, if it provides a compartment to store my gardening tools as I move around, then I consider it awesome- obviously because it makes me better organized and my efforts effortless.

Carry your gloves, seeds, tools, smartphone, and other accessories you may need. After all, most have storage. Otherwise, a lot of time will be lost going back to your house to pick something you could have easily have carried along.
Get its assembly right
For those that need some setup, it’s important to get it right the very first time. Otherwise, it will never meet your expectations once you mess up.
