Summer Season Tips – Working in the Heat

Groundskeeper Crew at Phoenix Sheraton

A few of us out there may try to tackle landscape projects during the heat of the summer, so here are a few basic safety reminders. Work earlier in the morning or later in the evening to avoid the hottest parts of the day. If you are working close to your house, you may be able to take advantage of shade at certain times of the day. Drink plenty of fluids (avoiding alcohol and caffeine) before and during your projects. Also, wearing a hat and using plenty of sunscreen will help protect you from the sun’s effects. For more information or a bid request, please call 1-800-571-1575 or click on FREE quote.
