Comments about Product: It was very easy to assemble and makes the jobs of transferring leaves so much easier. I have used about 5 days (multiple times) and it is still in good condition. I'm thinking of buying another one so if Plow and Hearth stops carrying this item I will have a backup.
Comments about Product: This product is the perfect size for hauling leaves to the curb for pick up. It's easy to use and fold for storage. The small stakes at each side help keep it from blowing around in the wind . I am very pleased with this purchase and would definitely recommend it for anyone wanting a leaf hauler that is smaller and easier to manage than a regular tarp.

Great product but must put together
Comments about Product: Once I got this put together, I loved it! But after about thirty minutes of frustration, my son showed up to help me put the rods in the pockets. It is next to impossible for one person to do it alone. If ordering for an elderly single person, please make sure you have help!
Comments about Product: For those of us who have to get through narrow gate, this option does not work. Years ago Plow and Hearth offered a wonderful Large Bag option that worked well for me, and I so wish they would offer them again. It was the best!!!! Now you only offer a small Garden Cleanup bag, please bring back to large Bag option.. it was the best invest for fall cleanup a long with those HandiHands!!!
Comments about Product: I love this product, it's a must have, for me. I fill it, and drag it by myself, to my burn pile. The stretch bars that allows it to fold up broke, but I still use it. It's like a giant tarp with sides. Thinking about buying another, just so I'll always have one. If you clean up leaves, buy it!
Comments about Product: If you've ever gone camping and know how to set up a tent you will have no problem setting this up. Takes a little bit of patience, but took me about 5 minutes total. It has saved my back alot of raking by being able to put it right where my pile of leaves is and not having to rake the pile a distance to the woods. Only improvement I would make to it is that I would add a ground stake or two to the front of the flap where you rake the leaves into, then leaves wouldn't get up under it. I would also prefer more carrying handles when you are hauling the leaves away. But, all in all it has saved me time and saved my back. Good product.
Comments about Product: Lightweight, just plug in the stakes and start filling!
Front edge could use a little stronger material to hold it down.
Fold and carry out to the woods or wherever you deposit the needles or leaves.
Comments about Product: It was very hard to assemble. Seemed the rods were too long for the alotted space. One of the rods broke before it even entered our yard. We use it for a limp tarp to drag leaves around. Don't waste your money on this item a sheet would work just as well.
Comments about Product: This product was very hard to assemble. It's not very large, so it required many trips from where I was raking leaves to where I disposed of them. The opening section does not stay down when raking leaves into it. It's overpriced. A tarp does just as good of a job for alot less money. I don't recommend this product.

Comments about Product: We maily use this to haul leaves and small twigs off the grass in the fall. It's a great help, although I wish the back panel was taller to keep the leaves from spilling over when moving. Otherwise, I highly recommend it.
Comments about Product: I have alot a leaves every fall that need to be hauled out to the curb for shredding. In the past I've used sheets and tarps. This product is great..leaves are easily loaded into hauler and no spills while transporting. I'm the envy of my neighborhood.
Comments about Product: Great idea for hauling leaves, BUT I wish it had a bigger capacity, and after only one season it is falling apart. If it were bigger and sturdier, it would be a much better product.
Comments about Product: I love it, It makes leaf cleanup so much easier. And I save money because I don't have to use all those bags and DRAG them out to the curb. Lots of my neighbors stopped to ask where I got it.My lawn man actually 'bought ' the first one from me to use at other jobs, so I bought another one for myself. Very lightweight; easy for a 'senior citizen' to use.
Comments about Product: We haul our leaves for city disposal and composting. The EZ Haul works well with one exception - the rods used to stiffen the edges have rubber tips (like tent poles) that come off in the pocket requiring a needle nose plier to remove and replace. We like how it glides over the lawn, even up hill, to dump the leaves.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
