Our Story

Welcome to YARD Apparel - Where Sun Safety Meets Fun in the YARD for all ages!

At YARD Apparel, we are a husband and wife team operating our Australian-made and owned business. We have a passion for the outdoors, especially spending quality time in our own yard with family and friends.

Our journey began when we embarked on a mission to find a unique gift for a green-thumbed Dad who loved gardening and spending hours in the sun tending to his lawn. We searched high and low for an Aussie made long-sleeved YARD shirt that was not only sun-safe but also featured fun and unique colours and designs. Much to our surprise, we came up empty-handed, and that's when the idea for YARD Apparel was born.

Our Unique Approach:

Our goal is to make regular mowing and gardening more comfortable and enjoyable but ultimately safer for Aussie’s in the long term with UPF50 mowing shirts which aid to prevent severe skin conditions that result from frequent exposure to UV Rays.

We collaborate with talented Australian artists and premium aussie manufacturers who share our passion, resulting in a collection of vibrant and playful designs that are sure to bring a sense of pride, accomplishment, and a smile to the face of every wearer, no matter your age.

Initially inspired by 'Dad's' and our own iconic cylinder/reel mower and well-manicured lawn, each shirt tells a tale of the joy and love we have for our yards and the beauty of working in the sunshine with nature.

Support Local, Support Australian Made:

As an Australian Owned business, we take pride in supporting our local community and contributing to the growth of our nation. When you choose YARD Apparel, you're not buying a big chain ‘fishing shirt’, you're supporting Australian artists, manufacturers, and craftsmen who pour their hearts into creating each quality piece.

Your purchase helps us nurture the entrepreneurial spirit in our country and strengthen our local economy as well as contributing donations and funds to well worthy Australian charities such as Cancer Council.

The Health Benefits of Working Outdoors:

We understand the immense benefits of working outdoors and being close to nature. Gardening and yard work not only provide physical exercise but also offer a myriad of mental and emotional advantages. From reducing stress and anxiety to boosting mood and promoting creativity, spending time in the yard and off 'our devices' has a profound impact on our overall well-being.
However, we know that protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is crucial, and that's why our UPF50-rated Australian knitted polyester fabric ensures you can indulge in your outdoor passions safer.


Embrace the Outdoors:

We invite you to join us in embracing the outdoors with our lawn and garden inspired yard shirts. Whether tending to your garden, landscaping, enjoying the sun-dappled moments in your yard, or even wetting a line, let YARD Apparel be your trusted companion. Together, we can create a world where sun safety, fun colours, designs, and the joy of outdoor living blend harmoniously.

Thank you for being a part of our journey and supporting our Australian dream. Together, let's make YARD Apparel a flourishing celebration of all things YARD-inspired!
