Perhaps the reason a lot of people use a gardening stool or seat is to reduce the wear and tear on a person's back and knees. Using one means not having to constantly stoop over or kneel down while tending to your garden. Gardening doesn't have to be a pain in the back!
Using a kneeling pad that is also a seat means that the "feet" can be used to help pull yourself up or down on the pad. For the most part, they fold up so carrying them around the garden is easy.
Probably the best type of gardening stool or seat comes with wheels that are steerable and easy to move around different terrains. Most have a storage compartment so you can take your garden tools and other items along for the ride! Some models have adjustable seat heights making them more user-friendly for you and your gardening buddy.
All in all, working in the garden can be a lot more fun and rewarding when you don't have to worry about back or knee pain. Having the right gardening stool or seat for you will mean that it is gardening time any time you want!
Do You Use a Gardening Stool or Seat?
Hi WordChazer. Thanks for you comment. Sorry to hear about your back. I checked Amazon UK and they have garden stools. Hopefully getting one will make it easier for you to work in the garden.
Point proved (to me at least) when on Sunday I spent no more than an hour out on the front patch, pulling dandelions and spraying weedkiller. Yesterday, when we went shopping, I had to take my cane as my bad hip had done nothing but ache sullenly ever since returning indoors. I think one of those scooters will be on my shopping list as soon as I raise enough cash, and as long as there's a version available here in the UK.
I like the garden hopper seems it would save a lot of time moving about more freely without all the up and down...
I'm liking that rocker model. I cannot kneel, so I've gotta have a seat. They work well for inside projects, too!
Thanks for your comment. These seats can also be used for other jobs. Makes washing or scrubbing floors a lot easier.
That gardening scooter looks like just what I need. I'd use one if I had one. I have lower limb restrictive mobility, which basically means I can walk forwards but not sideways and find chores like gardening and scrubbing floors a real chore as a result!
