Gardening is a laborious task no matter the size of your garden. When completing maintenance or even adding a new feature, you need to make sure you are taking care of yourself. From the way you dig, to the way you lift, it all has an impact on your body. Take a look at our recommendations for protecting your back in the garden, and learn about the best leaf grabber that limits back strain.
Keep Your Body Healthy
No matter how much you garden, there are always aches and pains. But there are certain methods that many gardeners use to ensure that they don’t hurt themselves while doing maintenance. If you’re digging, make sure to keep your back straight and always bend at the knees. This ensures that you don’t overstrain your back. Equally, lifting with a straight back prevents tweaks and excessive aches.
Why To Avoid Leaf Hands
Leaf hands are often considered the best leaf grabber, but are they really protecting your body? Leaf hands are often used in a pairing with a garden rake. Their main purpose is to pick up the piles of leaves that your rake creates. They can come in all shapes and sizes, but are often a one size fits all hand tool. They have a small capacity and it can require a number of trips to remove garden debris. With consistent bending down, what effect does this have on our backs? It can often result in considerable damage, aches, pain and even more with continued misuse.
