Life Cycle Gardens’ Garden on Wheelz lets you take your garden where you need it.

The raised garden’s wheelbarrow-like design allows it to be moved easily, so it could be wheeled to a shady spot for weeding or harvesting, then back into the sunshine the rest of the time.

Or it could be planted with seeds indoors while the weather is still cold, then moved outside when the temperature warms.

Its legs can be adjusted in height from 30½ to 37 inches, allowing the gardener to work either sitting or standing.

The mobile garden also has a water reservoir and a recycling system that catches water runoff for reuse. It’s made of food-grade plastic and provides 5.25 cubic feet of growing space.

The Garden on Wheelz has a suggested retail price of $299. It’s currently available at www.LifeCycleGardens.com and Amazon.com and is expected to be available in stores and from other online retailers.
