Garden Kneelers



  • LynLyn Posts: 23,067

    I have one of those kneelers, but don't like it being a few inches from the ground, also it's far too narrow, so never use it.

    I have Gel Knee pads, also my favourite is a chunk of foam in a strong plastic bag, think it came from sack with bird food. 

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    I have gel and foam filled knee pads, and although they're obviously better regarding freedom of movement around the garden, I can't use them for more than a few minutes before my knees get painful.  The basic, high density kneeling mat works better for me.  I guess it must be down to where the pressure is applied and how widely the load is spread.

  • Hi guys, I know this is a bit of an ask, but if you do own a garden kneeler then would you mind taking a photo of it, annotating it with dimensions and sending it on this forum?

    Thank you so much,

    This is the one I have.

    I'm a great lump of a 6ft bloke and it's ok , sizewise, for me.

  • Even if only some dimensions, for example the area of he kneeling area/how high from the kneeling area the handles are/the weight of the unit. That would all be great

    click on the link, then click on "view more details".

  • Do you find that your back/core muscles begin to ache after using a garden kneeler for extended periods of time, like along the red lines in the following photo?:

  • Hello Dylan234 - the link you added to your post is broken - 404 message.

    No neither back, core or feet ache. My last post was taken down because it was considered promotional so won't add links or images this time - I use a kneeler called KneePal which because of the moulded design your legs and feet are better positioned to avoid aches and cramps. To me a kneeler should be about taking the pressure off your knees especially if you have bad knees.

  • imageSorry about the link, this was the photo it was meant to take you to. Do you experience strain on the muscles along the red lines?
