COVID-19 and Landscaping in Calgary

 

 

Updated April, 2020.  Like everyone else around the City and around the world we are closely monitoring the Coronavirus COVID-19 guidelines and protocols.  These are unique times indeed and we are doing our best to stay open for estimates while still practicing social distancing.

Estimates at a distance

Many of our customers are calling or emailing us to ask about Coronavirus COVID-19 and Landscaping in Calgary.  We are still open for estimates but in order to help with social distancing we will not be meeting with customers inside their homes.  As well, we will be making sure to keep at least 2 metres from our customers while providing estimates outside. There are many estimates that can be completed accurately by emailing with our customers.  We will respond to all estimate requests and let you know if your estimate can be completed via email as this is the preferred method right now.

We hope to start landscaping May 1st

We have started landscaping a few says earlier than May 1st.  We are experience some longer than usual wait times at our suppliers so jobs are taking longer than they would have before the virus arrived.. Things change quickly but at this time we believe we will continue to be able to safely landscape outdoors.  At that time we will be implementing many safe work practices to help keep our clients and our employees safe by abiding by the Chief medical Office of Health and Public Health guidelines/directives.   Of course, if new guidelines and orders from Alberta health arise we will be sure to strictly follow them.

Landscaping supplies are not affected

At this time, our landscaping supplies are not affected.  We have been in touch with all of our manufacturers including our stone, aggregate and plantings suppliers.  They are all still working to manufacturer and supply quality products to the landscaping industry.  Some of our supplies come from other provinces in Canada and again, at this point, transporting of materials across Canada has not been affected so there should be no issues acquiring materials.

We are working safely in small crews

We have reduced our crew size from four workers two two or three workers maximum.  Our workers arrive in different vehicles and do not carpool to worksite locations.  We have plenty of hand sanitizer on site and in all our our vehicles.  Employees are instructed to use hand sanitizer frequently throughout the day.  We are very mindful of neighbours and pedestrians and we always give them the right of way if they happen to be in the area.

We are accepting full payment via Visa or Mastercard and if you like you can make payments over a thirty day period with no added fees. Deposits remain optional.

Help others and stay safe

We would like to remind everyone to please help those who are vulnerable and/or elderly by doing whatever you can for them.  Also, please remind your friends, family and coworkers that social distancing and self quarantining will help to greatly reduce the spread of this virus.

There are warm days ahead.  Stay healthy!
