I tried stools, the legs sink into the ground, so that didn't work; I
used the little plastic wagon called "Grasshopper" that worked till I
got so bad I couldn't get up from it; tried a "Radio Flier" wagon to
sit on and roll myself along the garden path, weeding or what ever; and
finally tried a 5 gallon plastic paint bucket with a lid and a bail
that allows me to cary it around where I need it. It gets a bit
tiresome leening over my fat belly too long, so I do a little, then
change jobs for a few minutes then come back and do some more. works
I can't use knee pads as I can't get up without help. I also use those
crutches that have a fore-arm band so that I can carry it with me but
still use my hands. I really don't need them to walk all that bad, but
it helps stabilize me going up and down the terraces and rough areas.
Hope this helps.
