There are more benefits of gardening than improving the curb appeal of your home. Spending time outside in the garden helps reduce stress, improve your mood and can also be a great source of exercise.
However, for all the good it can do for our spirits, hours of bending and kneeling can wreak havoc on the body, especially if you have a pre-existing injury or aches and pains.
For anyone looking for a way to enjoy their time outside and tend to their garden comfortably, there’s the Garden Kneeler Seat from Songmics, available on Amazon Canada.
What is it?
This versatile gardening seat can double as kneeler by flipping it upside down, with a detachable pouch to hold your trowel, gloves and more. The seat and kneeling pad is made from EVA foam helping reduce the pressure on your lower back and knees.
Songmics’s gardening seat is made from steel tubing that helps easy to fold and carry around your yard, so you can comfortably enjoy tending to your garden.
What people are saying
Songmics’s Garden Kneeler has more than 1,600 customer reviews and an impressive 4.6-star from Amazon customers. Shoppers agree that the kneeler helps make gardening and yard work easier, calling it the “perfect garden helper.”
One reviewer, who bought this bench for her mom, says it makes getting up and down “so much easier” and works as both a seat and something to kneel on. She finished her review by saying it makes long days of gardening “much easier on her knees and back.”
Another review said that his 70-year-old wife loves the bench, and it allows her to continue to garden “without the pain of tryng to get up from her kneeling position.”
Some customers have said that when in the stool position, the bench is fairly tall — which might not be comfortable for some people who would have to lean over.
One reviewer said that while the bench was “very strong and durable” and “great quality,” for her, “the downside is its height,” noting that at 5’3″, the stool sits too far off the ground.
If you’re looking to take some of the physical aches and pains out of gardening, this Garden Kneeler might be for you. The foam pad makes it easier to kneel while the stool’s legs can help assist you getting up and down. Just remember to place the kneeler on even ground.
