Plant a Tree/ Mechanical Descriptions The scale above is clearly not the actual size of the wheelbarrow you will be using to haul things like gravel, stone, pine straw, dirt, firewood, mulch, and more. Before you shovel in the material you are transferring, point the empty wheelbarrow in the direction you will be going. Add the load closer to the wheel, not the handle, so it’ll be easier to lift and move around. As you move the wheelbarrow to the desired location, keep your arms and back straight, and lift with your legs.
