If you want to make a mistake, buy just one pair of gloves to use in doing chores and in caring for the plants in your landscape. No matter how wonderful any single pair of work gloves may seem, there will always be a job for which they are inadequate. Our advice is to plan on having at least two pairs of gloves, though some of us who are a bit obsessive have three pairs, and even four pairs. We don’t spend any time here talking about price. The basic rule of the marketplace works here; the more expensive the work glove, the better quality it will have and the longer it will last. Also we must note that there are probably over 50 different gloves available with different materials and design. If a pair doesn’t work for you, keep looking, you’ll find the right one.
