Whether you do the occasional spot of gardening or spend more time out there than indoors, one thing is for sure; gardening can be hard work.
As well as the physicality of digging, cutting, mowing and hoeing there is the constant bending and kneeling on hard surfaces which can cause pain in your back, knees and other joints and muscles.
Help alleviate some of the strain of gardening with the Yard Butler GKS-2 Garden Kneeler and Seat.
To avoid bending or crouching for jobs such as pruning and cultivating many of us drag a chair or stool outside which can be cumbersome and soon become more of a hindrance than help.
When we need to get down on the ground a small foam pad is often all there is between hard, uneven ground and our knees. Now, there is no need for heavy chairs and ineffective bits of foams as the GKS-2 combines a seat and kneeler.
The sturdy, metal legs click into place either side of a thick, padded seat made from condensed foam. It can then be used as comfortable seat sitting around 12 inches off the ground.
To use as a kneeler simply flip it over and place the foam padding on the ground. The ingenious design means that the metal legs of the seat now become extended arms that can aid you in getting up and down.
Despite being of a sturdy construction it only weighs 8 pounds yet it holds up to 250 pounds in weight. The fact it is so light and it folds down makes it really easy to carry around the garden and store away.
Having a comfortable seat as well as not having to kneel on the ground has many benefits. As well as not getting your clothes covered in dirt when kneeling on the ground you will also be protecting your back, knees, muscles and joints from any unnecessary strain and potential injury.
Although gardening can be enjoyed by all age groups it is well known that many older people who have now perhaps retired enjoy gardening.
Many older people can suffer from ailments such as arthritis, stiff joints or just tiring more easily. That is why a product like the Yard Butler GKS-2 is so important to ensure you get the most out of a pastime you enjoy.
