Gardening Handicap tools and seats

Zone Locust Grove, Ga 30248 | Treva garden added on March 23, 2016 | Answered

I have arthritis in my wrists, hands, shoulders and back. What tools and benches are good for handicaps? Need a small, low bench to sit close to ground but not on it (about 8 to 12 inches high). Kneeling pads are too hard to get up off of and hard on the knees.
