Best Garden Kneeler and Seat UK Reviews 2023 

 November 2, 2016

By  Enda

In this article we look at garden kneelers that can also be used as a seat. In other words, they serve both purposes. In the sitting position you have a comfortable seat, and when reversed, you kneel on a foam pad, and can use the seat legs, to help pull you back up to an upright position.

There is an automatic assumption, that these are designed only for older gardeners. It is certainly true that older gardeners appreciate them more, but the reality is, any gardener will be able to make good use of one of these.

You can buy just a simple kneeler, or some type of kneeling pad, but why bother when you can have that, and also a seat at the same time. The price difference is not that big, and a seat is always a handy thing to have around a busy garden. Below we look at the top rated kneeler and seat combinations, currently available in the UK market.

There are plenty of these to pick from. Below I have included what I believe to be three of the best.

4. Draper Gardener's Kneeler Seat

So if you prefer to have a kneeler, a seat and storage capacity, then this Draper model answers that problem

This model is also a very popular choice for many buyers. It is not rated as high as the two above though. That said, you do have the benefit of the extra storage.

It can support weights of up to 125 Kg

Hopefully you have found the above information useful and helpful. 

Safety First

The most important thing is always to stay safe. That applies as much to these as to any other area of life. Some of these products that are on sale of this type, are cheap and poorly made. Avoid those at all costs, otherwise you could have a nasty fall, or an injury of some kind.

The ones that I have listed above, get overall very high ratings from satisfied buyers. At least that way, you know they have been tried and tested. You also know that they are good quality and safe to use in your garden, greenhouse or yard.


I am someone who enjoys a little gardening. Now I am not someone who spend hours in the garden, but I do like both my front and back gardens to look really nice. Well kept lawns, neatly trimmed hedges, and borders filled with plants, make a huge difference, to how your property looks.
