• Always have sharp, quality lightweight tools, less effort is needed for continued use.
  • Vary tasks and position every 15 minutes to use different muscles.
  • Stand up and take a walk around often.
  • Avoid twisting and lifting at the same time.
  • Invest in quality knee pads or a kneeling pad to protect the knees.
  • Practice doing a little at a time rather than trying to complete tasks all at once and suffering the next day from very sore muscles.
  • Leaf Cutter Bees are trimming up rose leaves. These native bees cut a perfect circle shape in the soft new foliage. They don’t actually eat the leaf they are busy building their nest in the end of a hose or a sprinkler. Tolerate a few holes in the leaves as these beneficial insects prey on the destructive insects in the garden.
