Landscaping is a job that requires you to be out in the elements, wind, rain, or shine and with the weather being unpredictable, it’s best to be prepared for the worst. Spending a day outside, working on a long and tricky job can become even more difficult if the weather turns, leaving you soaking wet. Not only will this leave you working in discomfort but it can affect your ability to complete the job to a high standard.
That being said, you can’t spend the entire working day head-to-toe in heavy-duty work gear if the weather is going to be hot and sunny. That’s why it’s important to choose work gear that is versatile and suitable for a number of different weather conditions. At Stormline, that’s exactly what we do best. We take real-world problems and create solutions – in this case, it’s comfortable workwear that can effectively protect you from harsh weather.
Having the correct piece of clothing to wear whilst carrying out landscaping tasks can help make life a little easier whilst working. Lifting equipment and carrying tools around whilst it’s raining can cause rain to run underneath normal clothes. Gaps around the wrist, neck and waist can leave you exposed to rain, causing the clothes which are in contact with your skin to get wet and make you extremely uncomfortable. If you’ve ever been in this position, it’s time to invest in some proper waterproof workwear.
The benefits of waterproof workwear for a landscaping professional
The key benefit of our workwear is that they’re waterproof, which is essential for working outdoors. When landscaping, it’s likely that the job is going to get muddy, which can completely ruin standard clothes. Add rain into the mix and you’ve got a muddy garden that can not only stick to your footwear but your clothes too. With waterproof gear, you’re not only protected against the rain but mud too, as it won’t stick to your clothing. It’ll also allow you to get ‘stuck in’ and not worry about how the mud will damage your clothing. Once the job is done simply wipe yourself clean and you’re good to go again.
This material which is designed to repel water is also extremely durable. Whether you opt for heavy-duty wear or something a little lighter, you can take comfort in knowing that both pieces will be made to the same high levels of quality. This means that you won’t face any issues as a result of wear and tear, meaning your work gear can last job after job. Our quality products ensure that you can work on the toughest landscaping jobs without fear of your work gear being unable to keep up.
As the weather can change unpredictably, it’s important that you have gear that can adapt to the temperature. Our gear is made from a warm but breathable fabric, meaning that when the temperature drops and the colder weather sets in, you’ll be able to retain a lot of your body heat and remain warm. This is also beneficial when the sun is beating down as the breathable clothing allows you to continue working without overheating. That’s why it’s important to ensure you have active workwear which allows you to continue working no matter what the weather conditions are.
Our landscape gardening workwear range features high visibility options for those who require it. Having workwear in colours that provide high visibility can be extremely important when working on worksites with others who need to be aware of your position. If you’re on-site early in the morning or late at night when it’s dark outside, high visibility workwear is essential to ensure other workers can easily see where you are. This is even more relevant when there is machinery being used or large vehicles on-site, as you will need to be as visible as possible to ensure your safety when working in this environment.
Our waterproof landscaping gear top picks
This waterproof jacket is built to withstand the most intense weather conditions and ensure you’re able to continue working. The jacket is durable but comfortable too, ensuring you’re able to make it through your job without discomfort. The jacket also features raglan sleeves which are designed to increase comfort without affecting your productivity.
This jacket is 320 gsm PVC/PU, which makes it perfect for wind and rain protection. The long back of the jacket provides extra protection from rain when you’re bending down. The drawstring hood allows you to restrict the size of it, preventing rain from entering through the neck hole.
This waterproof bib and pants will ensure you’re protected from chest to toe. The straps which sit over your shoulder will keep your bib in place and comfortably fit you. They’re also adjustable which means every worker can adapt them to suit their body type and ensure they’re not uncomfortable to wear. The lightweight material is durable and highly protective but won’t hinder your ability to complete a job, as it is flexible too. The extensive coverage will allow you to get stuck into tasks not worrying about liquids such as rain, oil or other potentially harmful substances.
As a bib and trouser set which covers a large portion of your body, this will work perfectly with a jacket, as a workwear combo. This will allow you to have your entire torso covered, with at least two layers and your legs too. Due to the trousers being attached to the bib, when you’re wearing a jacket over the top there will be no gap around the waist to let in water or cold air, keeping you both warm and dry whilst on the job.
This bib overall set is 630 gsm PVC, making it perfect for intense tasks which require durable, resistant workwear. These overalls are also great as an undergarment, allowing you to layer up with a larger, heavy-duty jacket over the top for additional protection in extreme weather. The bib section, which allows your arms to be free, also makes it more suitable for wearing during summer and other hot weather, preventing you from overheating but still providing sufficient protection.
For landscape gardeners, these overalls are ideal as they allow you to carry out your job, hands-on and being very active without thick material covering your arms and restricting movement. Finding workwear for gardeners which is both durable and lightweight can be tricky but don’t worry, Stormline has got you covered.
These farming trousers are perfect for workers in environments with large amounts of mud and rain as they are resistant to these, allowing you to continue working. The polyester backing means that the trousers will dry quickly too, keeping you dry for longer.
The elasticated waist allows them to be adjusted to any body size and the hem is designed to be worn with boots or wellingtons. This helps decrease the chance of water entering the trousers, ensuring you’re protected in extreme weather.
Stormtex 985G Vest
This vest features a waterproof, protective outer layer and an inner, more comfortable layer for wearing it long-term. This also leaves your arms free for mobility – a feature that is extremely handy for landscape workers as it allows them to easily lift materials and equipment, whilst keeping the core of their body warm.
The high collar provides additional protection to the neck – a feature that some other gardening clothes don’t have. This means that when you wear additional protective clothing underneath, you can benefit from greater protection. This vest also has PVC pockets with zippers, so you can easily clean the inside of the pockets. It also features a chest pocket for your phone, so you can keep it on your person without the risk of losing it.
