While spending time outside in the garden helps reduce stress and can also be a great source of exercise, it 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, you'll want to take note of one bestselling Amazon Canada finds.
The Songmics Garden Kneeler Seat has been called the "perfect garden helper," so read on to find out why shoppers love it.
What is it?
To help reduce strain, this versatile gardening seat can double as a kneeler by flipping it upside down, with a detachable pouch to hold your trowel, gloves and more. The seat and kneeling pad are made from EVA foam, helping reduce the pressure on your lower back and knees.
The strong and lightweight gardening seat weighs just 6.5 pounds but can comfortably support up to 330 pounds. Its high-quality steel tubing folds down for easy storage, so you can tuck it in the shed while you're out enjoying the sun.
'Perfect garden helper'
Songmics Garden Kneeler has more than 2,500 customer reviews and an average rating of 4.5 stars. Shoppers agree the bench makes gardening and yard work easier, dubbing it the "perfect garden helper."
According to one reviewer, the garden kneeler is "sturdy and very well built." The unit comes fully assembled, so you "unfold and you're set to go," they say.
It's "excellent" for anyone with "knee or hip problems," writes another shopper. The bench offers "sturdy support," and the tool pocket is an "added touch" to carry beverages, snacks and garden tools, they write.
The versatile garden bench has earned average ratings of 4.5 stars or higher for sturdiness, maneuverability and being easy to fold.
It folds up "easily and compactly," writes one shopper. Because the kneeling pad doesn't touch the ground, "you have a clean seat when you flip it over," they say, adding that for anyone with "old bones," the bench is "handy."
Despite its many five-star reviews, some shoppers say the bench may not suit all heights.
It's "well made" but "built for taller people," according to one shopper. Adding, the stool sits "too far off the ground" for someone at a 5'3" height.
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. However, some shoppers claim the kneeler is "built for taller people," something to keep in mind when placing your order.
