Covid-19 update latest
We are living through extreme and challenging times. We want to take a pro active part in dealing with the COVID-19 / Corona Virus, whilst trying to reduce disruption of our services.
In line with Government instructions about COVID-19 and Keeping your business open we wanted reassure you of the steps we are taking to ensure your safety and the safety of our employees. We are continuing to monitor the situation and follow the advice from the government and key public health officials.
Working together we can ensure safety is a top priority.
Customer and Employee Safety
The health and safety of our customers and employees is of the utmost importance to us. All of our employees are following the strict hygiene instructions issued by the government and the NHS in order to minimise the risk of spread and they have been issued with additional precautions within our specific work environment to further help with this.
In addition, the nature of our service means we are able to carry out seasonal lawn and other treatments with little to no face-to-face contact with customers in order to do our part in minimising the risk of spreading the virus.
With this in mind our technicians will be taking the following steps to ensure your safety as well as their own:
- We will either knock or ring the doorbell, step back to observe social distance, if no answer, then like other services e.g. window cleaner, we will get straight to work.
- Help them comply with social distancing rules and ensure that we have access to the area to be treated and any gates are unlocked, open and passageways are clear for our staff and equipment, we have included an estimated arrival time to help with this.
- If you wish to speak to the technician face-to-face, they have been instructed to stand a minimum of 2 metres from you at all times (as per the government guidelines).
- Our technicians are lone workers, so their contact with the general public is minimal.
- We would prefer you make payment for services by BACS transfer, the payments details are on our invoice, so you do not need direct contact with the technician for this.
While we are continuing to operate at this time, we will continue to take guidance from the NHS and government on any restrictions recommended.
We would like to reassure you at this time that we can continue to provide you with your lawn care services while taking every precaution to minimise the risk of spread.
Keep well and stay safe.
New Treatment Process
We will continue to send our service emails prior to our call, we have updated details within each message, please take time to read it. We are keen to ensure that you maintain the ability to raise questions or concerns about your lawn. You can do this by either emailing or telephoning before the visit. We will then assess any queries whilst we are there.
For consistency, these changes will apply for all visit’s members of the Greener Gardens team make.
Events are moving very quickly, we will continue to monitor the situation closely, reviewing developments and government advice. We hope the above will maintain our service levels, but also helps me make sure we all keep as safe as possible during this time.
Thank you for your support in keeping one another safe during these unprecedented times.
