At Pound Ridge Nursery & Garden Center, Inc. and Hudson Landscape Contractors & Tree Care Specialists, Inc., the health, safety and well-being of our employees, customers, and community members is of the utmost importance to us. We are closely following our Local, State, and Federal Officials and the guidelines that they are setting forth for small business operations during these unsettling times. While all of our staff members understand that regular hand-washing and frequently wiping down and sanitizing shared surfaces are a top priority, we also understand that social distancing is critical and necessary to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Our maintenance and installation crews are operating in smaller crew sizes, and wearing protective gloves and gear as necessary. They will also be deep cleaning all trucks and equipment, and self-monitoring their health on a daily basis.
Our Landscape Designers and Operation Managers are performing virtual meetings with our clients, or in-person site visits to properties while speaking with our clients via cell phone, to limit ‘social contact’.
Both of our offices (Hudson and Pound Ridge), are maintaining a daily work schedule with decreased staff, and have already put into place the ability to work remotely if required.
As of today, March 18 th – Pound Ridge Nursery will remain open from Monday thru Saturday, 8am – 5pm and Sunday, 9am – 5pm. We will have minimal retail staff on hand, and only essential personnel on premise to care for our live plant material. We are still actively taking in spring stock in preparation for our 2020 Season.
Our maintenance, landscape installation crews, and tree care crews will continue working ‘outside’ until further notice.
Given the unpredictability of the near future for our businesses, and the very real concerns and necessity of self-isolation, we are tailoring our nursery operations and our spring inventory ordering. As of right now, we are purchasing our cold-weather Spring Annuals and Perennial favorites. We will be offering free curbside delivery to our neighbors and customers living in Pound Ridge and neighboring communities.
As an active member of the communities that we operate our businesses within, my staff and I, wish only PEACE and HEALTH for all. We will overcome this hardship and it will propel us forward as a stronger human community.
