Maintaining Garden Spaces
Here at Edgewood Gardens & Design, we offer a variety of gardening services throughout the year...from creating and maintaining gardens to reclaiming and restoring garden areas. We have a crew with 30+ years combined experience in both perennial and edible landscapes. We support and encourage the use of native, woodland and meadow plant materials.
In Response to COVID-19
Our response to COVID-19:
Coronavirus has created a whole new way of life in the recent months, which has brought stress, anxiety, and uncertainty into all our lives. Here at Edgewood, we want to give you access to a fine gardening crew that takes your health and well-being seriously.
Since March, we have been implementing measures at work to ensure the safety of our crew and our clients. Our goal is to keep your garden spaces looking beautiful year round, while following strict guidelines that will keep you and your family safe in the process.
If you are interested in our guidelines we follow daily at each worksite please read below:
Guidelines the Crew at Edgewood:
Our crew members monitor their health closely. If they feel any sort of sickness coming on (sore throat, headache, migraines, cough, sinus issues, etc.) they are to stay home to protect their co-workers and clients.
When we arrive to work, we put your gloves on before exiting our cars and do not take them off until we are back in your vehicle. Every crew member washes their gloves and masks daily.
We are now advised to wear masks in public, and since there is a shortage we have all made our own and wear them throughout the day at work. Masks are important because they protect others from the droplets we expel when coughing, sneezing, and breathing.
All crew members are advised to stay 10 feet or more from one another to keep each other safe.
We sanitize every tool we use before and after use. This is another precaution we are taking to make sure we keep germs of any kind from spreading from one worker to another.
We encourage our crew to speak up if anyone is not abiding by the safely guidelines and that goes for our clients too! We want everyone to be as safe as possible. If you see any rules being broken, have safety precaution suggestions, or any questions feel free to speak with the owner Lesslie or email us at email@example.com.
