The Lawn Care Uniform is Important in the Branding of Your Lawn Care Business.
As mentioned in previously in Lawn Care Marketing that your Uniform should tie in with the rest of your Business Image based on your logo and company colours.
When you designed your Lawn Care Logo you should have had a 2 colour design with a third tie in colour. This can be seen in the following Lawn Care Uniform.
The logo colours were red and black on white but as white shows dirt and grass stains extremely quickly another neutral third colour needed to be used. One was chosen that would still keep the logo visible and hold the original logo colour scheme. Having a clearly visible logo image across all of your uniform is a key to being memorable in the customers eyes.
Paying a little more will pay off in the long run when purchasing your Lawn Care Uniform
When choosing the type or brand of shirt for your lawn care uniform make sure that it is one that will still look good after multiple washes as this business is not always the cleanest job on the planet. Paying a little more for a shirt (or sweat shirt/hoodie if you are in a colder climate) can get you alot more use out of each piece of your uniform and thereby saving you money in the long run.
The same can be said of pants, shorts (never cut offs), hats and jackets which should also be made of a good quality material to stand up to the countless washings they will get. I’ve found that Fruit Of the Loom far outlasted may of the other manufacturers and tended not to shrink as much. Working with a promotional items firm that understands your industries needs can be of great value in sourcing the best materials to stand up to your outdoor lawn care uniform needs.
The multiple benefits to having a Lawn Care Hat as part of your Lawn Uniform.
Making sure that you include a Lawn Care Hat in your Lawn Care Uniform arsenal provides multiple benefits to your lawn care business.
By having some type of hat, be it a ball cap style or a wide brimmed type such as one would wear when they go fishing is advantageous as it offers a form of advertising as well as safety fro the business as well as the workers.
When looking at the hat as an advertising opportunity too most it obvious the hat will help in completing the lawn care uniform from head to toe.
Your Lawn Care Hat offers many advantages …
The hat should have the business logo on it as well as be done in one of the accepted business colours already established. The hat should be adjustable so that each individual that wears one of the hats can attain a comfortable fit which will ensure that the hats are worn and not just set aside in favour of another that fits better.
The second reason is the safety aspect of wearing a hat. As you can well imagine during any sunny days, especially during the hot summer months that with the sun beating down on all those working outside for a living the need for some type of shade from the suns direct rays is necessary.
With the suns rays landing on daily basis onto someone’s head, face, ears and neck without any form of protection the chance for heat stroke and skin cancer are greatly increased. Neither one of those above mentioned options is something anyone would want so something as simple as wearing a hat seems easy to do.
There is also the lessening or elimination of sunburn also. So as you can surmise there is a great benefit to having a Lawn Care Hat included in your lawn business.
The many Benefits to having the proper Lawn Care Jacket.
By adding a Lawn Care Jacket to your total Lawn Care Uniform package you have created a complete year round version of one of your outdoor mobile Lawn Care Advertising channels.
By choosing the proper jacket given the temperatures and weather your business faces on a daily, monthly, even seasonal basis, a jacket makes sense.
The Jacket you choose should if you live in warmer climates that don’t have snow or cold temperatures then your jacket type should be just a water repellent (rain coat) type of jacket. One that can stand up to multiple hours of use on those rainy days when there is rain in the forecast for days and the lawns still need to be done. Now if you live in a part of the world where there are colder temps and winter then buying a Lawn Care Jacket that can be used for all seasons is a wise choice to make. They are known as three in one, four in one or sometimes even five in one style of jacket that can be mixed and matched to suit the weather conditions of the day or season.
These jackets have multiple zippered linings in them that make up options the jacket can offer the wearer. For example the first option may be all of the linings are attached and this offers a rainproof outer lining with an inner winter lining which gives you a great winter jacket that is warm and still rain, wet snow, sleet and freezing rain deterrent. As seen in the picture above.
Next, that same jackets’ inner winter lining zips out and one is left with a raincoat in one hand and a nice fall type jacket in the other. Thus far giving us three different jacket types so far, the winter all weather, the rain jacket and the fall jacket.
You then take that the fall jacket and the arms have zipper’s that allow the arms to come off and you are left with a vest which can be used in the cooler spring or fall seasons.
Make sure your Lawn Care jacket offers the proper weather protection you need …
By having a jacket that looks good as well as being waterproof/weatherproof you are providing your business with another means of advertising while you are working on sales calls, as a gift for some of your high sales clients or as a prize for local charities and golf tournaments.
If you take a moment and consider what a proper Lawn Care Jacket can provide a business then one can see that there are immediate advantages and spending a little more to get quality instead a lesser price for separate individual purpose jackets the benefits are obvious.
Finding a supplier that is willing to go the extra mile for you, (stand behind his workmanship) and your business is important along with giving you a good quality product at reasonable prices is sometimes hard to find.
These ad speciality suppliers are out there and wherever possible it is best to find someone locally that may in turn send business your way after you create a business relationship with them.
