Yes. Helps keep the plants from getting wind burn when in transit too.

Keeps all the hand tools out of the weather.

I use my enclosed for installs, plant delivery, and lawn care. I try to use it whenever I can because it has a full wrap on it, and it is very good advertisment. I use my landscape trailer for limb haul off, and to haul dirt, mulch, and larger trees.
