Gardening More Accessible




 465-Accessible-Gardeniing-Tips
 
Here are a few tips on making container gardening easier for people of all ages and abilities.  Age, injury, limited mobility, and other factors can pose challenges to working in your yard or garden. But, don't let this stop you from having fun and creating enjoyment.  In fact, people who can't get out and dig in the garden   are among those who benefit the most from potted planters.

Choose containers that bring plants up to a height that eliminates bending and minimizes reaching.  Place the pottery in areas that are easy to access - like along a paved pathway, on a patio or outside a kitchen door

Don't forget you can always pot indoors.  Set heavy or large pots on casters or
pot caddies to make them easier to move.  Window box planters are often a good choice, because they can be tended to and enjoyed from the inside and outside
.

Set up benches and other places to rest, preferably with shelter from sun or wind.  Elevate the containers so you can reach them if you are sitting down. Use the right tools.  Many times you don't need full-sized tools and can do the job just as well with small hand tools.  Wear a tool pouch or apron so you can keep them close at hand and don't need to bend over when you need them
.

Grow plants on trellises or make a vertical garden.  Start small with easy to care plants and small garden pottery.  Choose plants who mature size fits the spot to minimize pruning chores.  Include fragrant potted plants like herbs, soft fuzzy lamb's ears, ornamental grasses that rustle in the breeze, or plants that attract birds or butterflies.

Place houseplants where they are easy to see and care for.  Create tabletop gardens accessible on all sides.  Use pulleys on hanging baskets so you can raise or lower them when tending their need.
