Yardening Tip # 4: Add cushioning with knee pads
We know that kneeling down is certainly a convenient way to work in low areas around the garden but it will do damage to your knees over time. Bending your knees and kneeling on them is hard on your joints and bursa the sacs around the joint that holds the lubricating fluids that keep the joints lubricated.
Wear a good set of rubber knee pads when kneeling down. Massaging the knee allows blood and oxygen to get into the joint, which makes your knee’s job of healing itself a lot easier.
