These simple and smart updates to everyday yard tools will make your outdoor chores a heck of a lot easier this season.
Better wheelbarrow grips
Make lifting heavy loads with your wheelbarrow a little more pleasant by adding these cushioned hand grips. Reuse an old rubber bike tube by cutting pieces to fit over the wheelbarrow handles. If needed, use a hair dryer to warm up the rubber and make it easier to stretch. The bike tube provides the perfect amount of padding and traction.

Simple lawn edging
To edge your lawn, garden, or flowerbed, lay down a 38x140mm plank of wood. While holding the board with your foot, drive a flat spade along the board’s edge. Move the board as needed to create a clean, straight line.
