Among the many great gardening events going on this time of year is Perennial Gardening Month, which is the month of June. This is a great time for all of you perennial plant fans to discover new summer blooms to add to your collection, whether it be yarrow or lavender.
While perennial planting is a great option for people with disabilities since it requires less constant maintenance, there is still work that must be done year round for these long-living plants. It’s our job here at The Wright Stuff to make this work easier for our patrons with disabilities and their families.
There’s a special place in our heart for gardening and gardeners, and so on the occasion of Perennial Gardening Month, let’s take a look at some adaptive garden tools specifically useful for perennial planting.
According to the National Gardening Association, pruning is important to maintaining a perennial garden. The ARS (Always Really Sharp) Telescoping Razor Edge Pruner will help you pick off unwanted growths, such as damaged leaves and spent flowers, without having to bend over, climb, or navigate through a lot of shrubs.
This long-reaching pruner can be adjusted between 4 and 7 feet in length. The head is made of long-lasting stainless steel and features a neck that tilts conveniently up and down up to 30 degrees.
The National Gardening Association also says that digging up and watering the soil with a trowel is important to maintaining a perennial garden. Traditional trowels can cause strain on the wrist and fingers. Instead use the Easi Grip Garden Trowel, which has an upright ergonomic handle to save your hand joints.
The Easi Grip Long Reach Garden Trowel lets you do all of your trowel work either standing or from a chair without having to stoop.
With the Easi Grip Long Reach Garden Trowel or any other Easi Grip Long Reach Tool, we encourage you to use the Easi Grip Arm Support Cuff for a more equal weight distribution.
Turn any of your favorite perennial gardening tools into an Easi Grip tool by connecting Easi Grip Add On Handles to the traditional handles of your tools.
The GripEeze DIY Support Glove features a strap to support the fingers while gripping, and the glove also works to keep your hand warm while you keep up your perennial garden during the winter months.
Discover the fun and convenience perennial gardening has to offer with these adaptive tools.
