Growing Family, Farms, and Community in Oldham County, Kentucky.
Her background includes work with children and seniors. I have been gardening and landscaping since the late s. Following my back surgery in , I discovered the importance of proper lifting, carrying, and digging techniques for gardening. Recommended habits can be modified. I still garden and do strenuous work, but I listen to my body and take a break, change my position, or stop when needed.
Well, sometimes I go past my limit — but not far — and when I do, I pay more attention to my posture. Staying active is important to maintain endurance, flexibility, and energy. When we age, endurance is often the first thing to go. We feel weak, unable to lift and move plants like we used to, and familiar tasks take longer to complete. Reduce the overall maintenance of deep perennial beds, for example, by making them narrowing and backing them with shrubs.
The loss of flexibility is also one of the first signs of aging. An injury or development of arthritis are among several things that can cause reduced flexibility. This limits our ability to maneuver in the garden: Of course, gardening does help us maintain flexibility. Reduced flexibility needs to be considered when we decide what needs to be changed to make it easier to maneuver in the garden. Additional limiting changes include poor balance and persistent back and joint pain.
Once these changes start, gardening becomes more of a challenge, so modifying your garden as you develop it could help in the long run. What is the size and layout of your garden? Is your garden large with numerous perennial plantings and border gardens, or is it smaller, including just the area surrounding your house with maybe a small vegetable garden?
The style, size, and area of your garden will determine the approach needed when making modifications so that you can enjoy gardening again. Note that annual and perennial plantings need a lot of maintenance because of their constant change and growth rate. Lawns, trees, and shrubs also require maintenance but not as often as flower beds. We should look ahead. Look at what has recently changed in your ability to maintain your garden.
What are your immediate limitations? Decide what you will be able to handle and still enjoy gardening. Will you be able to have someone available to help maybe a family member or young gardening enthusiast to keep your garden as it is? Gardens are a collective of plants that we desired to grow at one point or another.
Some, though attractive, are not your favorite. Select those plants that are your favorites and reconsider how to handle the rest. Changes based on a landscape plan can be made all at once or over a period of years.
If you decide to do the work yourself, start with your most labor-intensive space. Look for plants that need less attention. Reduce the overall maintenance of deep perennial beds by making them narrower then backing them with shrubs. Another solution might be creating a pollinator garden that requires minimum upkeep and can be mown off once a year.
Reduce reaching distance and amount of leaning forward to pull weeds or spread mulch. If you can only access a bed from one side, ensure it is no wider than two feet. Beds accessible from both sides can be four feet in width. To make the work easier, use quality tools and keep them clean and sharp. A rusty shovel is more difficult to dig with because the soil will stick to it more. A sharp hoe will cut through weeds easier than a dull one.
Consider automatic watering and semi-automatic watering systems for gardening to reduce the amount of hand watering. Soaker hoses and single drip emitters are two options. Once you have decided what changes to make to your garden, you can make them yourself with family help or hire a landscaper to install them for you. The design of large gardens will need to provide easy access to all the plants with wide, level walkways on both sides of four-foot-wide beds.
Create shaded areas in the garden using trellises, gazebos, and small trees so you can get out of the sun a while. Benches provide a comfortable place to sit and rest. Walkways should be wide and level enough to accommodate a wheelchair. Turf, smooth recessed stepping stones, or paving stones make a good surface for wheelchair access.
Mulch and loose gravel are often hard to push through and can also become a slipping hazard. Smaller garden areas can be created using a number of large containers grouped together or as single planters.
Container gardening can reducing your gardening stress, and the many different and attractive containers available add interesting focal points to your garden. You can also turn just about anything into a container garden. From teapots to milk jugs, wooden dressers to wine barrels, let your creativity run wild!
Consider installing raised beds that reduce bending over by allowing you to work in a standing or seated position. Standing, you may be able to maintain a three-foot-deep bed, while two feet is manageable if seated. Raised beds can be a very attractive part of a landscape, defining walkways and providing a more formal appearance. Height often varies from six inches to three feet tall. Raised beds can be constructed in many styles using a wide variety of materials, including treated wood, concrete blocks, stone, and more.
Various shapes and curves can be included to help blend the raised garden into your existing landscape, making it both attractive and functional. Unique garden features like vertical gardening with wall planters and trellises allow you to work while standing up.
You can buy a premade trellis or build one yourself. Pots can be stacked or arranged on a riser. Like container gardening, vertical gardening is an opportunity to get creative in the garden. Growing vegetables using vertical trellises reduces bending and picking. Many vegetables grow well when trellised.
Cucumbers, beans, squash , and melons can all climb the traditional store-bought garden trellis. Another simplified gardening method that lifts your garden, making it more accessible, is straw bale gardening. This gardening method can be incredibly productive.
It also cuts out all of the digging and cultivating that can be hard on the body. Straw bale gardening does, however, require several weeks of setup. Every garden and every gardener is unique. Consider your body type and abilities when adapting your garden as you age. Understand that your garden is limited by your physical abilities and personal interests as well as the location of the garden itself. With these tips in mind, make changes that allow you to continue enjoying your gardening hobby without the stress of a high-maintenance landscape.
You may have heard about the cases of whooping cough in Lexington. Although most persons you may meet are vaccinated against the illness, it is important to be aware of whooping cough, its symptoms, and treatment.
Pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough, is a respiratory illness. It is very contagious. This means that if whooping cough has been going through the community, there is still a chance that a fully vaccinated person can catch the illness.

Whooping cough spreads from person to person through coughing, sneezing, or even being in close proximity to someone with the illness. Many people are infected with whooping cough by siblings, parents, or caregivers who do not even know they have the illness.
Symptoms of the illness usually begin within five to ten days after being exposed but could take up to three weeks to manifest. Symptoms for babies are very different from older children and adults. Babies might not even have a cough or it could be a slight cough. They are also likely to show apnea a long pause in breathing.
This illness is very dangerous for babies. If a school age child is showing symptoms, he or she should stay home from school and visit a healthcare provider.

If your child has whooping cough, he or she will need to stay out of school until all antibiotics have been taken. If a person in your home has whooping cough, the healthcare provider may recommend that others in the home also take an antibiotic to prevent the spread of the illness.
