We continue our series today about tips to garden with proper form to avoid injury and strain.  In addition to proper physical form, you need the RIGHT TOOLS to help you when gardening. Consider the tips below!

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Choose tools that are ergonomically designed, with padded handles and spring action. Make sure the size and weight are right for you. And always choose the proper tool for the job.

Here are a few more tips to lighten your load:

  • A hose is easier to manage than a watering can
  • A good cart, or dolly, makes moving heavier loads a breeze
  • A wheelbarrow that is lightweight and has two wheels is a good idea
  • Separate a larger load into several small ones
  • Select comfortable, thick soled, supportive shoes
  • Cover up with a wide-brimmed hat, wear gloves and sunscreen
  • Use ergonomically designed, long-handled, lightweight tools

Using the right moves can go a long way to enabling you to plant and rake without the ache.  Positioning your body correctly reduces strain on muscles and joints.  So use these tips to enjoy the fruits of your labour for years to come.

LIFT RIGHT
Make sure your back is straight.  And always bend your knees.  Carry the load close to your body.  Avoid heavy lifting immediately after bending or kneeling.

KNEEL TO PLANT
Use knee pads or a kneeling mat to reduce the strain while you plant and weed.  Keep your back straight and stop frequently to take a break.

ALTERNATE
Heavy. Light. Heavy. Light. That’s the right way to handle those chores.

CHANGE HANDS
Take the strain off by changing the position of your hands.

CHECK YOUR POSITON
And change it often. Kneel. Then stand. Or simply sit and relax for a while.

RAKE RIGHT
Ease the strain on your back by putting one leg in front, the other behind. Switch legs and hands from time to time.
