safe gardening

With spring yard clean up and garden planting comes clearing fallen branches and getting that shovel back into the earth.  Protect yourself by practicing safe gardening standards including:

  • proper ergonomics when lifting heaving objects and soils / mulches,
  • getting help with removing overhead limbs and branches,
  • taking the time to stretch your back and legs after kneeling in the garden beds,
  • limit prolonged repetitive movements to avoid overuse injuries and
  • use the proper tool for the job
