Have them do little things like pulling some weeds, blowing off hard surfaces, a little pruining here and there and looking pretty. Can't do too much yard work in a bathing suit though. Maybe they could ride a ZTR.
Oh hell, that's what I been missing! Dude I bought my new WB and everything is like in the picture - Beautiful lawns, easy chill work, smile on my face, but... No budweiser girls... I kept wondering what happened to that part, and somehow I seem to be missing the waiter bringing me constant refreshment as well.

If I was the homeowner I wouldn't stand for it.

As the owner of this business, I would NOT stand for the shirts to be off. Period. No argument, no discussion.

The shirts on that site are really quite hideous. And what about having them printed with your company logo? Does that do anything to the fabric?
I am a woman doing lawn care, and I think a "wife beater" is ok if you're in great shape and maybe in the back yard? I had some made with my logo on them, so I think it's a bit more professional. But it's true, the neighborhood you're in is really the deciding factor. Use good judgement. I get no complaints when I'm wearing one!

Keep in mind, you still get UV exposure through clothing, including long sleeves. Not much, but if you are really concerned, you should buy UV-blocking clothing. (I guess it would only really be important if you are taking a medication that has major side effects with sun exposure.)

No Shirt, no Job

It is a strict policy with my employees, no shirts no job. I provide company logo shirts and hats.
