Gardening made easier. If gardening is your passion, but arthritis is making it a little harder for you to get around, you will be pleased to note that there are new gardening tools available for you.
Scooters aren’t just for kids, and you will be excited when you see what the tractor scooter can do for you. With this scooter you can sit while you garden, and steer around the garden beds without getting up. The tractor seat is large and swivels 360 degrees to take pressure off from your lower body joints. It is advertised in Arthritis Today magazine (November/December 2006) as being easy on your back and knees. The tractor steers easily, rolls smoothly, and has an accessory tray and basket to hold things like tools and seeds.

Another hand tool is a garden tool caddy. The hardest part of gardening, when you start having physical issues, is lugging all of the hardware needed from one place to another. A wheeled caddy by www.smithandhawken.com has room to store all of your tools and you can wheel it wherever you want to go.
