The Genus Summer Gardening Trousers Wear Test!

The Genus Summer Gardening Trousers Wear Test!
21 August 2015

About six months ago, one pair of our summer gardening trousers for women arrived at the door of a critical gardening friend. We extended an invitation to put the trousers through a rigorous customer wear test. Our friend was a good candidate because she has a garden at home that needed re-landscaping, and she had also taken on the tenancy of two overgrown allotment plots. The trousers were put to work from March onwards, through a whole series of different gardening activities.

On the allotment the trousers were worn whilst: clearing and burning rubbish; brush cutting and removing bramble bushes; endless hours of double digging and hand weeding thistles, couch grass and bindweed; and even more hours weeding the vegetable beds. In the garden work included: digging out a pond; moving hard core and soil; putting up garden fence panels; and staining and proofing garden furniture and a garden shed.

OK then what was the result? Apart from comments on the overall comfort of the trousers, particularly whilst working through the short July heatwave, the photographs below probably tell the story best. The trousers aren’t unscathed, but the quality cotton fabric has withstood everything that was thrown at it. Best of all is the lack of significant staining! Many of the customers we met at shows this year asked how well the summer style stood up to potential grass stains. Obviously there was no need to worry! The wear test was a real demonstration that Genus Performance Gardenwear keeps it’s look just as much as it’s functionality.

With these kinds of results after months of consistent hard wear we say "Stroll on the next six months of tough gardening" we have nothing to fear!
