Gardening is a favorite pastime for many arthritis sufferers and there are some joint friendly products that can help make your gardening experience more enjoyable, including:
* Ergonomically designed garden tools with cushioned handles and non-slip grips are easy on stiff joints.
* A garden seat or pad can provide a comfortable cushion when you are on your knees and gives you something to sit on when you feel you need a break.
* A watering wand is a long metal rod that attaches to your garden hose that can water large flowerbeds and hanging baskets so you do not have to frequently bend or reach while watering.
