Backyard Gear Products- Waterstation Plus, Others
What happened to the Backyard Gear line and its wonderful products? Is there
anything else on the market like it? If so, where can I find them?
As a former retailer of this popular line, we are still getting lots of questions
like these. To help you, we will answer your questions (below), and help
guide you to similar products.
1. What happened to the Backyard Gear line and its wonderful products?
The manufacturer went out of business, a victim of the Great Recession. While
it is now ir-relevant, we believe they were felled by the cash/credit crisis
in 2008-2009, when banks made credit renewal or new loans all but impossible.
While the products were great, the company did not have the cash reserves
to survive those tough times.
Waterstation Plus and other products in the Backyard Gear line that carried
a water sink, were unique and very popular. But, this popularity could not
save this small company in the toughest of economic times.
2. Is there anything else on the market like it? If so, where can I find
Yes, and no. There are no other products on the market that we know of, that
has a water sink. If one was to become available, we would seek to carry
it, as consumer demand for models with a water sink was quite popular. For
other items there are comparable items, read on.......
Plus- Unfortunately, There is nothing else on the market with a water
sink. We suspect the patents held by the now defunct manufacturer keeps others
from the market.
Garden Water Station - This unit had a water sink, and held hoses
and garden tools. While there is nothing on the market with a water sink,
the Suncast Garden Center has some
similarity. See the Suncast Garden Center, #SCGC1500B
Barbecue Prep Station - Like the Waterstation Plus, the water sink
made this item unique and quite popular. Suncast offers three items for deck
use, but they do not have a water sink. They are the Deck Cooler (#SCDCC3000),
the Patio Cooler (#SCDCC3100), and the Deck and Pool Serving/Prep Station

Grill Stool - The Grill Stool was simple and very popular. It allowed
storage for grill tools and charcoal, and offered a place to sit next to
the grill. Plain and simple, it was priced right and made for a very popular
Father's Day gift. There is nothing else quite like it on the market. The
closest we can find is a Sucast Deck Box with Seat.
See Suncast Deck Boxes
EZ Kneeler - There are other Garden Kneelers on the market. There
is also a garden scooter, that you can sit on for greater comfort.
