The landscaping industry supports a countless amount of employees, many who are from disadvantaged backgrounds and are also the sole provider for their families. Landscaping companies have abided by all the rules and regulations during the five long weeks of Level 5 lockdown despite the detrimental effect it has had on their company's financial and employee's well-being, because we recognised the importance of doing our part to slow down the spread of the Covid-19 scourge currently plaguing our country and the world at large. Unfortunately many of these companies have or are beginning to crumble under the immense strain of further inability to operate under further regulations enforced by government. We do understand the need to gradually 're-ignite' the economy, but the cost has now become too high for too many and the risk of astronomical unemployment and the closures of businesses started by good people is not something we can sit idly by and watch happen. We think the landscape industry can operate with ease during Level 4 lockdown regulations and beyond. These companies operate outdoors where very limited contact with the public occurs and strict hygiene, health and social parameters can be enforced to ensure the safety of both the client's and employees.
