If you’re above a certain age and/or contending with physical limitations, it ain’t easy being green — i.e., a gardening lover. On the one hand, the end of March presages weeding and planting season, and you couldn’t be more psyched about watching your backyard plots come alive with flowers and self-grown veggies as the temps climb. On the other hand, the mere thought of all those hours on your knees or bent over at the waist makes your knees and back throb in agony.

Well, the folks at Abco Tech are about to make that prospect a whole lot prettier: Behold their Foldable Garden Kneeler and Stool, an amazing joint-sparing, spine-saving device that will make your upcoming garden projects a pastoral pleasure rather than an orthopedic ordeal. Your wallet’s going to be pretty happy, too. Right now our readers can get this handy-device gadget for just $40 with our exclusive code (down from $70). Just enter code 15YAHOOABCO at checkout. You’re welcome!

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

How does this thing rule? Let us count the ways. The Abco Garden Kneeler and Stool is, yes, both of those things. Made with a durable metal frame and soft EVA foam padding, you can kneel on it while weeding and planting, all the while protecting your clothes from grass and dirt stains, not to mention getting jabbed by the occasional jagged rock. Then, just flip it over and you’ve got an elevated place to sit when you’re pruning those rose bushes or harvesting the tomatoes. And oh yeah: It comes with a tool pouch to hold your trowels, mini-rakes and knife, as well as a pair of gardening gloves.

Needless to say, this is a dream come true for seniors and anyone plagued with knee and back problems. And while it weighs just 6.7 lbs. it’ll support sitters weighing up to 300 lbs. When gardening season’s over, just fold it flat for easy storage in the garage, a closet, even under the bed.

Not surprisingly, the reviews on Amazon have been glowing. “I have had a knee replacement and have severe arthritis in my lower back,” related one five-star fan. “I love gardening and could not do most of my planting and weeding without this handy little bench. I also use it for just about everything else you can imagine, like painting baseboards, using it as kneeler to look for items under the bed, chairs, tables, etc. I am not a light person, and these units hold up over time. My first one is three years old and going strong!”

“A must for knobby knees,” instructed a happy reviewer. “As you get up in years, there are two things that are difficult to do, get down on your knees, and work on something that is located at waist level. This simple device solves both problems. If you need to kneel, you turn it one way and it is a somewhat padded kneeling pad. If you need to sit while working on something located at waist level (like replacing the battery in an automatic door lock), you turn it the other way and it is a nice seat.”

“This thing is AMAZING, I love it,” gushed one happy, hefty shopper. “I’ve had two spine surgeries, so gardening is a major challenge. This is the tool that makes it possible. Also: I am 230 lbs. and find this very solid!”
