I got a new cart for Christmas this past year that works great.  It is deep,
so holds up to 4 big bags of mulch or soil.  It has a good center of gravity
so is not to heavy to lift on it's wheels for pushing around.  The wheels
are the size of a large wagon, so only sink into my sandy soil if it is
freshly dug up (about 1.25 inches wide, 6 inches across).  It even has an
area for small pots or large drinks at the handle.  It is a Sears Craftsman
garden cart.  All disclaimers apply, I just love it.

Oh, and I am fairly short at 5'3" with less muscle than I should have, so it
really must be easy to handle if I can do it.  <G>
