Once this gardener passed the age of 40 things started to go downhill. Where once I spent hours bending and planting, now this activity means troubles with back pain.
I tried it all, from sitting in the grass on a coushin, the upside down bucket,to a cart like the one below.
After me raving about the new garden rocker (1st image), I was totally surprised when my husband bought it for me! And I have to say I absolutely love it!
It is a portable chair with a nicely, comfortable contoured seat. The rocker's curved base moves with your body for a full range of motion in any direction while sitting or kneeling and adjusts from 11–14" high. You can even buy a nonslip cushion which has 4 pockets for tool storage. I still need to get that one.
Hubby also said, he could use it when cleaning the rims of his car tires. AHA, I knew it - there was more to this surprise gift! LOL!
Anyhow, it makes planting so much more enjoyable and I highly recommend this item.
