Construct raised beds to elevate the soil level to a comfortable working height. Tall containers also reduce the need to bend and stoop.
Attach pulleys to all of your hanging baskets so plants can be raised and lowered for easy maintenance.
Use soaker hoses (buried just below the soil level) to take the work out of watering.
Stop picking up after yourself. Leave frequently used tools in designated spots right in the garden to save steps to the shed or garage.
Choose low-maintenance plants. Plant dwarf and slow-growing trees and shrubs, and noninvasive perennials such as cranesbill, bleeding heart and daylilies.
