Garden knee pads, or kneeling pads, cushion your knees with extra-thick foam and provide the ultimate barrier between your skin and jagged rocks and twigs. Knee pads also protect against fatigue because they conform to the contour of your knee. Garden knee protection is available either in a single foam pad, or in strap on knee pads. Strap on knee pads have wide, adjustable straps to keep them in place. Each knee pad is capped with durable plastic to protect your knees from moisture, cold and rough terrain. Garden knee pads and kneeling pads are foam padded or injected with gel to absorb pressure, scrapes and bumps. Garden knee protection costs between $10 and $50 online.
