I always wear pants, and my merrell hiking boots, that way if I am trimming, I don't get grass or anything down my boots, or on my legs. Its not that bad in ct with pants even during the summer months, and I always wear a pair of sun glasses from april until the leaves are all cleaned up in november or december, rain or shine. It's not worth getting anything in your eye.
