The Best Work Gloves for Landscaping



We’re going to lay down the lawn: if you work in landscaping, you need to wear appropriate work gloves.

According to Liberty Mutual Insurance  “landscaping workers make up less than 1% of the U.S. workforce, yet, they experience 3.5% of the total occupational fatalities.”

That statistic is a bit scary. The good news is that the types of injuries typically associated with landscaping job are easily preventable.

 

Here are five gloves that you need for all your landscaping needs.

This glove is perfect for working small impact hazards that cause severe damage to the hands. The hi-viz back makes it easy to see if you’re working in a hedge. 

Our Customer Ted was working with a bush native to Alaska called Devils Club,he kept getting little thorns in his hands.
