Welding Gloves for Gardening and Landscaping

Blue-lined leather welding gloves

I’ve been using welder’s gloves like these for garden and landscape work for many years.  They have two advantages over the usual garden gloves you find at the garden or big box store:
  • They are sewn with the seams outside the glove, eliminating blister-raising hot spots when doing heavy work like digging.
  • The cuffs are good protection when working with allergenic plants.  If they’ll keep out welding slag, they’ll keep out the poison oak.
