Gardening although very rewarding, is a dirty job. Gardeners need the right type of gear to protect them from the weather elements, harsh garden conditions, or even protection from the numerous garden pests that have settled into our yard. While gardening, it is important for gardeners to wear a protective hat for good sun protection. Protective garden gloves are essential especially if you are working with garden tools or handling any plant with thorns or sharp ends. If you are faced with yard pests such as fleas, ticks, or ants in your garden, then wearing protective shoes is a must. In our particular neighborhood, we have groups of deer that move through our yard daily. We are concerned about deer ticks in our garden so we tend to always wear garden boots while we are in the yard. We do occasionally see a snake in the garden so I’m alway careful to have my boots on.
Having the right garden gear is important because the ground can be hard and dry at times, or wet, muddy, and messy. If you frequently garden, then inevitably you will track garden and yard waste into your home more often than not. Clumps of mud, wet grass and leaves, and numerous pests can find their way into your home. Keeping gardening gear in the garage or garden shed is one way to minimize the amount of yard waste that is tracked into your home. Solid gardening gear is essential to maintaining an organized and tidy home but more importantly it offers you the gardener protection from the weather, garden plants, and garden pests.
