A sort of hand protection made expressly for gardening operations are gardening gloves. They come in a variety of designs and materials, but they all have one trait: they shield your hands from the weather as well as any grit, trash, or thorns that could be in your garden.
- When working with fertilizers, pesticides, or other chemicals, gardening gloves can provide a barrier between your skin and the potentially harmful substances
- Gardening gloves provide a layer of protection between your hands and any sharp or thorny objects in the garden, such as prickly bushes or thorny rose stems
- Wearing gloves can help keep your hands clean and dry while gardening, which can be especially important when working with damp soil or wet plants.
- Gloves may require regular maintenance such as cleaning, drying, or conditioning to keep them in good condition
- May trap heat or moisture, which can make your hands hot and sweaty during warmer weather
