Here are some Garden tools I think would help the elderly keen gardeners of this world.
Garden litter picker This is a very handy tool for people struggling to bend down to pick up litter or light debris of their lawns. Also, very handy for picking rubbish out of flower beds, and will help save your knee joints and back.
Garden Kneeler This is very handy for people who want to save their knees when doing low down weeding or planting out formal bedding or tubs. The ones what which with the handles are best as they will support your back when getting up.
Garden stool on wheels This is very good for people who are unable to stand for any length of time, you can also use it for attending to low down plants, pruning low down branches, planting, digging over tubs and small beds using a hand fork or trail. The one shown here in the link is very good as it as the tray underneath to keep all your hand tools and bits and pieces.
Garden leaf grabber As the name says, this is a very handy tool for picking up leaves, you can also use it to pick up grass cuttings, loose branches from trees, and any other garden waste that maybe hanging around your garden, will also save you from bending down if you have a bad back.
Digging spade Unlike the much bigger version of this spade (which are much bigger and a lot heavier) and also have a blunt edge, this one will make easy work of digging holes for planting, digging out any old roots, turning over beds, and generally any task that involves digging. This one is also very lightweight, and has a sharp edge for cutting throw soil a lot easier.
One-handed grass shear This very little handy tool can be used to cut the edges on your grass when kneeling down using the above garden kneel, er. I have also known people to use this tool when cutting box hedges to shape in big pots.
Expandable garden hose This garden hose should make life so much easier for watering plants around the garden. Very lightweight, and you will not have the problem of reeling it back in after you have used it.
