Dear Customers and Partners,
We are all experiencing unprecedented times in our battle with Covid-19. Though we don’t know the outcome, we believe that by working together, we will get through this, and that life will eventually return to normal. At MPS, we are committing to the health crisis effort, while also preparing for what will come afterwards.
Here is how MPS is doing that:
- Provincial legislation has deemed Snow and Ice Management to be an essential service. Although current weather makes it feel as though winter is over, we had a snow event on Monday, and have had plowable snow amounts mid-April in two of the past three years. We will remain vigilant, and our mechanical team will be continuing to service, maintain and repair our fleet. If we have snow events, we will handle them with all team members following all appropriate health protocols.
- Office functions to support these efforts will continue. All administration team members that can work remotely will continue to do so, and team members in the office will follow recommended hygiene and distancing protocols. The office will be closed to the public.
- Although aspects of the landscape industry can be argued to be essential, we will honour the intent of the shutdown. We will hold off with all landscape services until such time as health officials deem it appropriate.
- We are continuing to prepare for the upcoming summer season. Although things are in virtual shutdown right now, this will all come to an end; and plant, tree and grass growth will take off as it does every spring! We are doing everything we can to be organized for when that happens. Among other administrative functions, our sales teams are busy organizing summer workloads. We can communicate via text, e-mail, phone and video call, and can still measure properties, create designs, and provide solutions to outdoor challenges. If you have any landscape construction or maintenance needs, this is a great time to get organized for the restart!
We are always excited about the rejuvenation that spring represents. This year that will be infinitely more true! Our team knows how healthy it is to work outdoors and can’t wait to get started. We love what we do every day and look forward to helping you get the most out of your outdoor spaces this season!
The MPS Team
