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!
