Does your garden look a bit wild after the winter? The struggle is real, especially during the lockdown. It is so much better to have a tidy, pleasing-the-eye garden where you can sit in the afternoon and enjoy your tea. Oh, okay coffee-lovers, we’re sorry for neglecting you.

But can gardeners work during the Tier 2 lockdown?

Let us guess. You want to book a gardening service for your home, but you’re not sure if this is allowed and safe for you and your family, right? Well, lucky you, this post explains it all.

Are gardeners allowed in your home?

Yes. According to the latest update by the authorities, businesses can provide home services but they need to do to protect staff and customers.

The British Government has also stated:

You are a tradesperson carrying out essential repairs and maintenance in people’s homes, or are carrying out other work in a home such as cleaning or paid-for childcare in a child’s home. You can continue work, providing that you are well and have no symptoms. No work should be carried out by a tradesperson, cleaner or nanny who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild, or when someone in their own household has symptoms.

To have a garden while under a ‘stay at home’ mandate is a real blessing. However, having a jungle at home during a quarantine period could be quite unpleasant. Now, more than ever, people need to spend time in a harmonious outdoor space, with beautiful plants and fresh grass. You can consider booking a gardening service, but before that, you should be aware of a couple of things.

Are there companies that deliver gardening services during a lockdown?

Yes. Some gardeners are working during the coronavirus outbreak. However, you need to be very careful when you’re allowing someone to come to your house. You need to make sure that the company that you hire for the job takes the necessary preventive measures, the gardeners wear protective gear, and the team follows important all safety requirements issued by the government.

Since the companies individually decide on what actions to undertake to provide their services safely, you need to make sure that you choose a service provider that puts the safety and well-being of their customers first.

What services do we deliver during the lockdown?

We continue delivering gardening and outdoor maintenance services. Depending on your property, we’ll discuss the possibility of performing a particular service. During these tough times, the qualified teams of gardeners are offering:

  • Garden maintenance – In case your garden needs clearance or refreshing after the winter season, we offer trimming, removal of weeds and overgrowth, shaping of trees and bushes, and lawn mowing.
  • Patio cleaning – In order to avoid slippage and remove all sorts of soil, moss and algae, we can clean your yard using pressure washing methods.
  • Planting and flowerbed building – If you are planning to produce your own food or you are just a fan of flowers, we can help you out.
  • Fence installation and repair – If the storms and winds have broken your fence panels, we can fix or replace them. This way you’ll improve your privacy to have all the outdoor fun you want.

If you have children, you might want to consider removing or replacing broken panels and decking boards, as well as trimming the bushy plants to avoid accidents. The garden is your kids’ heaven right now, so make sure it’s safe.

Is it safe to book a gardener from us?

Your well-being has always been of utmost priority for us. That’s why we are following government and specialists’ advice to put protection first when delivering all kinds of services.

Once you book your gardening service, you’ll be asked if there have been cases of COVID-19 in your household. If the answer is positive, we’ll NOT be able to send a gardener to your home.

Although the gardeners wear protective gear, we’ll arrange the best way possible for them to access your garden or patio without getting in contact with you. Note that only online payments are available at the moment.

We are closely monitoring the situation and ensuring that all of the technicians follow the company rules regarding the coronavirus.
