Keeping Our Team & Clients Safe

We are working hard to keep our team safe while continuing to service our landscaping projects. As such we have instated strict social distancing, personal hygiene procedures, facility and daily vehicle cleaning, working from home options for our office staff, and employee health monitoring as well as the requirement to stay home if ill. We are monitoring the situation closely and modifying our plan daily to protect our team and comply with regulations as they occur. We feel fortunate that our employees work outside and maintain social distancing as a normal course of work, our process of modification is somewhat less complicated than other industries.

We are also continuing to monitor the Center For Disease Control, Oregon Health Authority guidelines and recommendations for businesses, as well as the recommendations from National Association of Landscape Professionals. Our teams have risen to the challenge and embraced the new requirements allowing us to operate and provide our service. However, our safety and contingency plans are continually being evaluated and updated as new information is available. We hope to be able to continue our operation serving our clients and keeping our team earning wages through this crisis.
