I recently started using this kneeler in the garden and love the versatility of being both a kneeler and a seat. As a kneeler, it is raised a couple of inches off of the ground which makes it easier on my knees and the "legs" can be used as a helping hand when time to stand up. Just flip it over and now it's a bench. It's just as nice to sit as I weed also. Definitely would recommend this product.
