How To Hire A Landscaping Company During COVID-19

The global pandemic has proven to be difficult to navigate for many small businesses and the landscaping industry is certainly no exception. You may have attempted to do some of your own landscaping during the COVID-19 pandemic, whereas normally you would just call up a landscaping company to handle your lawn care needs. While the government has begun to allow businesses to open again, there are still ways you can hire a landscaping company to look after your lawn while maintaining your distance and safety. Here are a few things to consider when it comes to hiring landscape workers during the global COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 Needs To Be Top Of Mind

Hiring a landscaping company during these tough times can be just that: tough. Operations practically changed overnight and CEOs and landscape managers everywhere have been taxed with placing strategic methods so that we can all stay healthy. Whether your lawn needs cut, you require tree trimming services, you want some bushes and shrubs pruned, or other landscaping work needs to be done, your hiring decision will determine how smoothly and safely the work goes right from the beginning. Make sure that any potential landscape companies you’re interested in hiring have a solid COVID-19 strategy in place. The public is entitled to service of any kind that comes with safety precautions built-in. Most landscaping companies have COVID-19 related content all over their website now, so if you come across ones that don’t then consider that a red flag and move onto another lawn care company. Every lawn care company, big or small, should have the resources and personal protective equipment they need to protect their workers and customers during COVID-19 operations. This year is unlike any other and all businesses have to go out of their way to ensure they don’t fuel the pandemic further.

Make Your Property Beautiful Again ... But Safely

Essential businesses were able to keep their doors open during this health crisis back in March and April and beyond, but landscape companies were forced to shut down for months until the government loosened restrictions. Homeowners are now scrambling to find talented people at landscape companies that offer services while the COVID-19 pandemic continues to take its toll on businesses across the world. Your home has been your sanctuary for the last few months and safety is always top of mind before anything else. It’s completely understandable that you and your family stay home as much as possible in order to avoid contracting or spreading COVID-19, but that doesn’t stop customers from wanting a beautiful lawn. Now that companies have been able to open their doors again with strict safety precautions in place, it’s about time that your property receives some much-needed TLC.

Hiring a landscaping company now from a local vendor requires more due diligence on your part to ensure everyone in your household and beyond remains safe. This COVID-19 situation isn’t going away anytime soon so we all just have to learn how to adapt and let the landscape professionals tend to properties that have been neglected while you stay inside and let them work their magic.

Hire A Landscaping Company That Cares About Everyone's Safety

Be sure that the landscaping businesses you research are adopting these important COVID-19 safety measures to keep customers safe, along with their staff, before you make any hiring decisions:

The state of your lawn is something you take very seriously, but so is ensuring everyone is kept safe. In order to make landscaping services work for everyone amongst the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s up to all of us as landscape industry professionals to think about effective safety precautions while still being able to provide exceptional landscaping services – especially for customers who are the most vulnerable.

Take Your Time Hiring A Landscaping Company

Information is power and it’s very important that as the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, landscaping businesses follow all guidelines laid out by government officials, their association, management, and other potential governing bodies so we can all stay as healthy and safe as possible. Spend the time vetting local landscape professionals before hiring them for their services so, during every step of the way, you always feel at ease with the landscape workers you have on your property. While you have landscape employees at your residential or commercial property and you feel uncomfortable with their COVID-19 practices then be sure to alert the project manager so everyone is on the same page. Never be afraid to express your concern.
