Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Wed, Aug 29, 2012 @ 04:40 PM

Go to your local department or hardware store and purchase a rubber gardening mat and or a wheeled gardening stool. Use the rubber gardening mat to kneel on. Use the wheeled gardening stool to sit on while weeding or you can sit directly on the ground. Try not to bend over for too long. Always take breaks and stretch! Don’t forget to keep your gardening tools close at hand!
