Raised Garden Bed
If you love gardening but don’t love all the bending over and kneeling, then try this! A raised garden bed isn’t just healthier for your back, it also keeps the plants protected. It makes it harder for animals to get into the garden and also allows you to control how much water goes into the plants.
Consider constructing a little path in your yard or garden. It doesn’t take too long and is fairly straightforward. You can use whatever material you want and make the path as big or as small as needed.
