Ditch the jeans for tan Dickes. Looks better, plus stay cooler than jeans.

I did landscaping for 10 years...... but then went on a hiatus (found other work for another 15 years) - and now I'm back doing landscape maintenance.

Currently I wear a hat, jeans, short sleeve shirt that breathes, pack lots of ice water and one of those neck cooler things.

Any other suggestions on how to stay somewhat cool?
I love lightweight carhart stuff, keeps me very cool

Get a cotton shirt. I made the switch. It's better.

Welcome abord, I grew up in So. California, hope you still like me LOL.

No way to cool off, take breakes if you need to and quit for the day if you need to.

Becareful the heat doesn't make you sick because it really can.

i didn't choose to live in the south. i was born here. i can't just move up north. what would i do for a job? how could i afford to live there with the high cost of living? i would have 0 family members up there. it's not home. plus i'm sure the people up there aren't quite as nice.

if we are going by temperature i'd rather live in canada. i hate hot, humid weather. it's ok though. really no matter where you live there is always a downside. i'm sure the folks up there get sick of the cold, wet, snow after a few months.

it would be nice to live up there in the summer and live down here in the winter. who has the money for that though? not me.
