March has come and about to go but how much time did you manage in the garden this month? Today I am sharing The benefits of a OneLeg stool for gardeners
March is a really busy month in the garden and no doubt you will have spent the autumnal month preparing for a colourful spring. But it doesn’t stop there for us, does it? I know, as a keen gardener that this month we will be patiently planting summer bulbs ready for the warmer weather to arrive and months of alfresco dining in the garden.
The benefits of a OneLeg stool for gardeners
The one leg stool was sent to me as a gift and I have been testing this handy little chair in numerous ways. The stool is light weight and portable which makes for an easy task transporting around a big plot like mine. The one leg stool is available in two different sizes/heights and a range of colours to suit your lifestyle or profession. The one leg stool is not just for gardeners and has a ton of health benefits. I designed my own stool with ease using the One Leg website. Prices were available immediately and the website is straight forward and not at all complicated.
I chose a blue seating cover with a shade of stone leg. The bottom of the leg also has a cover for extra grip. So let’s get on to The benefits of a OneLeg stool for gardeners
I am currently in my third trimester of pregnancy and find chores in the garden somewhat restricting these days. I know that my mental health is just as important as my physical health and gardening, for me, brings the two together. Since receiving my one leg stool I have been able to be more active in the garden and benefit from planting my summer seedlings. The one leg stool supports posture and balance. With a heavy bump, I feel my balance has been off lately and found the support from the One leg to be really useful.
Did you know – the OneLeg stool comes with plenty of health benefits
The small and extra curved foot on the OneLeg stool enables you to rock, tilt and rotate as you sit which protects your lower back by reducing the amount of twisting and burden on your spine. By sitting instead of kneeling you will also protect your knees and feet, which can be strained or squashed when in the kneeling position. As you tip and turn on the stool, you will be able to reach a larger work area without the need to move the stool.
In the garden
The OneLeg stool can be used anywhere in the garden, on grass, on soil, gravel or stone and works well on slopes. We recommend the height of 32cm for most gardeners as this seated height enables you to work comfortably at ground level. However, if you are tall, then a 40cm stool may be more comfortable. This does, of course, depend on your flexibility.
Pregnancy and the one leg stool
The one leg stool has helped me with more than just everyday gardening jobs since I have been pregnant. I have a place for the stool in my utility room and it comes in handy when I put my shoes on and also when I am unloading and loading the washer and tumble dryer.
Taking the one leg stool out and about
The one leg stool is lightweight and portable so can be loaded in the car without taking up too much room. I like to tend to my Mothers gravestone and give it a good tidy every month. The one Leg stool allows me to sit and clear this special space in my own time comfortably. I can also take a flask of tea with me, knowing that I have a small potable stool to rest on.
