As the weather warms up and the snow begins to thaw, the landscaping tasks begin to pile up. No matter what type of landscaping task you’re tackling, it is a good idea to consider purchasing some gloves to protect yourself and employees from the hazards of the garden.
You’ll want to find gloves that have a good puncture resistance to keep you safe from those thorny bushes and leaves as well as branches and metal yard edging. In addition, you’ll likely be handling different types of fertilizers and pesticides which, when in contact with bare skin can be irritating.
When selecting a landscaping work glove, look for gloves that are thick enough and durable enough to withstand punctures and will also maintain dexterity for when you’re working with tools and small plants and seeds.
