I find it quite hard to get on with my kneeling stool when I use it in the kneeling position. The legs are useful to lean on to get up but it can be a bit unstable if the ground is uneven. I wouldn't want to rely on it if I really needed help to get up. I also find the legs get in the way when I'm actually working on it.
I do,however, like it as a little garden stool when working on raised beds etc
For border weeding & planting I much prefer to use a waterproof kneeling cushion given to me as a Xmas present. It's larger than the kneeling pads, much more padded so nice & comfy & very easy to shuffle along on. Mine is a posh Cath Kidston one but I must have had it for 10 yrs & it's still going strong. It doesn't,however, offer any help to get up if that's what you are looking for.
