How's this for a garden accessory? Heck, every country gardener could use one of these. Maybe not all the time, but skid-steer loaders save a lot of back work when you're doing heavy garden construction jobs.
I took this picture at Canada Blooms, the big flower and garden show that finishes its five-day run in Toronto today. The show rarely features heavy equipment, so I have no idea why this machine was display.
My husband has rented skid-steers for a couple of jobs. Here he is on the machine a few years ago in the earlier stages of our garden making. The heavy equipment came in handy for moving the rocks, soil and gravel for creating his rock garden.
I'm a keen gardener and garden writer and photographer, living on a country property of 10 acres near Hamilton, Ont.
I love ornamental grasses and easy-care, contemporary garden styles. In my garden I try to work with nature, instead of fighting it.
