Proper Body Mechanics for Planting and Weeding

Planting and Weeding

  • Sit or kneel while planting or weeding.
  • Raised beds and trellises are easier to maintain than in ground beds.
  • Make pathways wide enough so heavy things can be pushed in a four wheeled cart or dolly.
  • Plan to have gardening beds near a source of water or use lightweight hoses.
