There are more benefits of gardening besides 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.

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.
Songmic’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
Songmic's Garden Kneeler has more than 1,500 customer reviews and an impressive 4.5-star from Amazon customers. Shoppers agree that the kneeler helps make gardening and yard work easier, calling it the "perfect garden helper."
"I bought this for my mom who is an avid gardener. She used this all summer and loves it," one shopper wrote. "It makes getting up and down much easier and works both as a seat and to kneel on, works great for her long days of gardening much easier on her knees and back!"
"My wife is 70-years-old and this allows her to continue to do her gardening without the pain of trying to get up from her kneeling position," another wrote.
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.
"This stool is very strong and durable and great quality! The downside for me is it's height. I'm 5 ft 3 tall and this stool sits too far off the ground for me," one person wrote. "I bought it to save my back and I don't think it will do the job because I need to bend so far over while sitting on it. Just for reference, I put the stool next to my sofa & checked to see which was taller and it was an even match. I wish they made a version for shorter people."
If you're looking to take some of the physical aches and pains out of gardening, Songmic's 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.
