March 30, 2020

Dear Loyal Customers,

I’m devastated to announce, that after hearing Governor Northam plead with the public to stay home, we have made the decision to close our doors to the public due to the COVID-19 health crisis. We are taking orders for wholesale customers as delivery only and we will accommodate existing curbside pick up orders. We know that we might be the first of our type of business to make this call but we think it is the right thing to do and we hope that you understand. Just like you, we are taking this one day at a time and are just as heartbroken as you are that we can’t be “business as usual.” Our number one priority is to keep our employees and their families safe. Keeping them employed is part of that plan and that means keeping our customers safe as well and limiting their access to public spaces. We feel that closing temporarily is the answer to that.

I’ll never forget my coworker telling me that “everybody knows a landscaper”, so maybe now is the time you call your landscaper friend and keep your local nursery and landscaper friend in business.

Last week, I closed my letter by saying thank you for your patience and understanding and this week I will not only do the same but also “thank you in advance” for coming to see us when we open back up to the public in the future. We are going to get through this together.

Sincerely,
Kate Leffler
General Manager & Vice President
