Do you love gardening but wish it was just a bit less bothersome? Are you finding yourself with new aches and less energy than you would like at the end of the day? We’re not going to tell you to stop gardening as it’s one of the most rewarding and serene hobbies you can have. There’s little more zen than managing your soil and nothing better than a beautiful shrub. But if you want to cut the stresses and aches out, then we’re here to help.
For one, you’re going to be complaining about your knees in all likelihood. The wonder of gardening is getting right down to the nitty and gritty but this can often mean being on your knees for hours. Take the stress off your back by getting yourself some protective gardening knee pads. You’ll be able to work for longer and not end up with bruised, worried knees at the end of the day.
Gardening without tearing your hands up
Protecting your hands is just as important as your knees, of course. Plenty of plants have devious snags, thorns and nettles. You didn’t get into garden because you wanted achy hands, so get yourself a pair of gloves! You want to make sure that the gloves you get protect you from whatever you’re likely to come up against. Dexterity is also a key issue, however, as you’ll be dealing with tools and getting your hands right in there amongst the soil.
Gardening without annoyances
Roots, weeds, stones. They always get in the way, stopping you right in your tracks. If they’re lodged right in, it can take a good of sweat and toil to hoist them out. Well, toil no more. The hori-hori is a specially designed knife for easily cutting to the root of a problem and extracting those little annoyances from the soil. Let this little fella do the hard work and get back to your zen.
Gardening in style
Of course, you want everything to be looking fantastic at the end. So it’s a real problem when you have a gorgeous plot and a big, haphazard bush towering over it. Make sure you have your pruners on standby to take care of any stragglers and make sure your garden is every bit as stylish and chic as you.
Gardening with ease
If you’re looking for a gorgeous garden without getting too in-depth about it, don’t worry. There are plenty of ways you have a much lower maintenance garden.
