Working in the heat

Let's face it: Not everyone is cut out to work out in the heat. But for eight hours, landscapers from Healthy Lawns & Shrubs work while the sun shows them absolutely no mercy!

Let's face it: Not everyone is cut out to work out in the heat. But for eight hours, landscapers from Healthy Lawns & Shrubs work while the sun shows them absolutely no mercy!

"It's at least 100 degrees. It's probably 115 on the blacktop," Jesse Hall said.

Because Jesse Hall and his team have done it for so long, the heat really doesn't bother them.

"You can't just get out and do it in one day. It's going be something over time that you build up and if you can build up a tolerance for it, you can handle it," Hall said.

The crew does everything we've been advised to do, like drink plenty of water and take breaks.  Sweet treats also help them get through it.  Every once in a while they eat a little ice cream.

"It's delicious," one of them says.

It does a body good right about now as it quickly melts.

Then it's back to work so they can get home and enjoy the air conditioning.

"If you can't shake this heat off then you can't do this type of work or any type of work for that matter," Hall said.
