The 10 Best Garden Stools
This wiki has been updated 22 times since it was first published in January of 2017. Gardening is relaxing and enjoyable, but only if you can avoid the aches and pains that often come from stooping to plant level. With these garden stools, you can spend more time doing what you love and less time searching for a comfortable working position. They are offered in many shapes and sizes, including those that give you a quick break and those that provide all-day support.

At this time, we have opted to keep a selection of decorative and functional choices that are great for everything from casual to serious use. On the lighter end of this spectrum, we have kept the Deco 79 Drum and added both the Safavieh Double Coin and the BirdRock Floral. These offer you a place to perch when you need a break; they can also function as a side table or seating for a guest. Choices for more heavy-duty use include the Best Choice Rolling Seat and the Vertex Rocker. These allow you to work in the dirt for longer and with less pain than if you were to bend and stoop. For the greatest relief, you might try alternating between one of these stools and a garden kneeler, depending on the task. Finally, we have decided to add the GCI Outdoor PackSeat. This isn’t technically a garden stool, but if you have a large area to take care of and need to sit down from time to time, it’s a good — and portable — tool to have around.
