Life Under Lockdown

Is a Gardener Allowed to Visit Your House During The Coronavirus Outbreak?

UPDATED: 05.01

Don’t let the second lockdown wave stop you from prepping your garden for the winter months! Enjoy a tidy, pleasing-the-eye outdoor environment from your window and during the afternoon tea, instead of looking at a bushy, spooky-like autumn scenery.

So, can gardeners work during lockdown?

Perhaps you want to book a gardening service for your home. Or maybe you feel like it’s finally time to finish that landscaping project you’ve postponed for a while, but you’re not sure if this is allowed and safe for you and your family. Read on to find out!

Are gardeners allowed to come to your home?

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

The British Government has previously 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.

Is it safe to book a gardener from us?

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.

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.

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.
