At times, winter can feel never-ending. And just as we thought we made it through, boom… we’re hit with a pandemic! There’s nothing like getting kicked while you’re down.
In all seriousness, many of us are wondering what we can do to support those leading the fight against COVID-19 and to minimize the pandemic’s economic impact. If you have spare medical supplies (ie: masks, gloves or shields), Google where to donate them to your community hospitals. As a company, we’re working on solutions aimed at supporting front-line workers.
If you’re like us, you’re working from home (every time we say that, Fifth Harmony plays on repeat in our heads). This also means you’re stuck staring at your yard that’s just not nearly as pretty as you left it five months ago. While keeping up with your lawn might not be at the top of your list during these trying times, supporting local landscapers and businesses could be.
At a time when so much feels out of our control, there’s plenty we can do to help show our local businesses some love.
Keep reading to uncover two essential services and one no-cost way to keep your yard healthy and to support your community’s economy.
1. Spring Clean Up
Winning “This Months Ugliest” is the Coronavirus, followed by dormant, dry & straw-like lawns. While we can’t cut COVID-19 into pieces (except with soap), we’ve got local crews on deck ready to get rid of leaves and debris so your lawn can breathe. As spring turns to summer, this is critical to ensure pests such as rats, ticks or mosquitoes don’t have the chance to magnify public health risks they cause.
Asking your local landscapers for a free cleanup quote just got a lot easier. The best part, you’re still abiding by the CDC’s guidance, with this no-contact socially distant service.
2. Lawn Mowing
In the distant past, hiring lawn mowing services required connecting with pros by phone, setting an appointment and meeting to get a quote. While that’s not going to fly this season, you can still book services online and avoid risks of infection. Just get your price and use our “we’re on our way” text alert to know when to go inside.
Beyond the cosmetic appeal, it’s also really important to manage grass to prevent pests from encroaching on your home. I’ll say it again; ticks and mosquitoes aren’t able to thrive in short grass. It’s often surprising to people that lawn care is essential to safe and sanitary living.
3. Get Creative!
A lot of us are tightening our budgets, but have lots of time. This is your chance to get creative and help your local landscapers and businesses.
For just a few minutes of your time, you can make a difference. Just post great reviews of businesses that earned them and you may have overlooked complimenting. People are far more inclined to review when they’re dissatisfied, so this appreciation will help combat that especially when things go back to normal.
