Many garden tasks require working down low, which can put a strain on your back if you stay on your feet or cause pain if you kneel on the ground. That’s where garden kneelers come in. Use one of these and you can avoid bending too far or putting your knees directly on to the hard ground. We’ve rounded up the top picks for you in our selection.
This 1.5-inch thick pad will prevent knee pain and keep you steady as you work on garden beds. Pick from an 18-by-11-inch version or size up to the 24-by-14-inch version. The high-density foam from which the pad is made is robust enough to cope with stony ground, and it has a built-in handle for easy carrying.
Keep tools at hand
This design does double duty because it can be used as a garden seat as well as a kneeler, and it can support weight up to 330 pounds. It’s easy to fold for storage, and at 5.73 pounds, it’s not a burden to take to where you need to use it. On-board tool pouches keep your garden tasks efficient.
Select from eight great hues when you opt for this foam garden kneeler. It’s 17.5-by-11 inches in size and, like our other foam pad choice, is 1.5 inches thick for knee comfort. It’s designed to feel firm for long term durability and can be used on stony surfaces. Since it’s water-resistant, it won’t take long to dry out after use on damp ground.
Fold flat to store
A patterned three-pocket tool pouch that hangs on the frame of this model makes it a good-looking addition to your yard. This is another of our two-in-one picks, flipping over to provide a seat for pruning tasks or enjoying the view. The kneeler has a soft foam padding to extend the time you can spend on your knees.
Keep clothes cleaner
Prolong the gardening years of a relative or friend by giving them this sturdy cushion and bench. It can make comfortable kneeling possible, and the side handles ensure resuming a standing position is an easier task. Built from steel, this kneeler has a thick foam pad, and it can support 250 pounds. Not to mention, this bundle includes a teller and terra rake giving you all you need to garden.
Why you can trust Gardeningetc
Garden kneelers can be vital for some gardeners, and tending beds is a more comfortable task for everyone with cushioning between knees and the ground.

The TomCare garden kneeler seat can keep knees comfortable and works as a seat as well. It weighs just 5.73 pounds, and is simple to fold down for storage. And, its pouches ensure tools can be at the ready.
