Yard work is always done wearing girl jeans or leggings. My front and side yard is very small so mowing is done with a weed eater. Since it throws a lot of debris covered legs and heavy shoes are required but I try to keep it as feminine as possible. The top is usually a tank top or t-shirt with bra and forms. The neighbors all know so no fears.
The back yard is nothing but a steep hill so it only gets whacked a couple times a year.
