claude, I did buy her a bench that doubles as a kneeler that she does use from time to time. If her back is bothering her she will sit on the bench and use a long handle dandelion fork to dig up the weed and then use one of those reach extenders to pick up whatever. She is determined.....

My sis got me one of those bench/kneelers for my birthday this year. I'm really not ready for it yet, but I did sit on it- in the kneeler position- after it had rained and I did some weeding. It kept my butt dry.

I have one of those sit flip kneel ones too that helped me get back into the garden after an accident. I love it! No more muddy knees. Because you can use the legs for balance on sloping ground they keep me secure. Also fewer deer ticks from sitting and kneeling on the ground. Every once in a while I’ll use the sitting part...more for a water break.
Mine gets more use as a place to sit while filling the chicken waterers or contemplating what to put where. Sometimes it's a tool holder. Unfortunately it's a few inches too high for me to be able to plant or weed comfortably, even though I have long arms. Can use for picking beans- right height for that. I guess I just like being a bit closer to the ground. Bought a thick pad to sit and scoot around on that will keep the butt dry. Kneeler is good for helping one get into a standing position from sitting on the ground, a feature I need to use a lot these days.
