For wheelchair gardeners, or others who find it easier working from a seated position, we offer four long reach tools. These are also used by gardeners who struggle to bend down.
The extended shank of this Long Reach Easi-Grip® Hoe allows you to reach ground level or the back of a raised bed.
Although these tools still have all the benefits of our ergonomic handle we recommend that they are used with our arm support cuff for optimum control and minimum strain on the wrist.
Plan your garden beds so that you can reach them from the path. So make your flower borders no more than 60cm (2 foot) wide if you have access from one side, or 120cm (4 foot) wide if you can reach from all sides.
All the Easi-Tips used on these pages came from www.carryongardening.org.uk the website for Thrive, the charity for Social and Therapeutic horticulture, where you will find many, many more great ideas and resources.
