I know a lovely lady, who is a Master Gardener, and unfortunately had a stroke. She has some balance problems and reduced vision on the L. I wanted her to try the kneeler stool to see if it is high enough and stable enough for her. I realize she will probably need help to rearrange how the garden is organized...but I think it will bring her joy to be able to trim back the plants.I am worried that she might have problems transporting the stool from one plant to the next and it might not be stable enough in the garden as opposed to a concrete path.
Thanks! Any info or other recommendations are appreciated.
