Dear Outdoor Design & Living Friends,

Governor Lamont’s recent ‘Stay Safe, Stay Home"’ executive order deemed nurseries and garden centers, as well as businesses providing landscape services and outdoor maintenance essential and are allowed to remain open (see ct.gov/coronavirus for more information).

Outdoor Design & Living is ready, willing and able to help you and your community, perhaps be a distraction bringing a little happiness and beauty during these trying times.

Our maintenance crews continue to complete spring maintenance services and begin mowing lawns soon. This work is outdoors and does not require any contact with our clients. We have staggered our crew start times, requiring our crews to travel with only two at any one time in our trucks and we’ve outfitted our vehicles with hand sanitizers, latex gloves, and disinfecting wipes. Please call if you would prefer us to delay any visits to your home.

Our nursery is operating with minimal staff and receiving new daily shipments of trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals daily. We are limiting standing inside and the staff is abiding by the recommended CDC precautions by wearing gloves, sanitizing tools and maintaining social distancing this includes loading cars and all deliveries. We are able to handle transactions in many creative ways to assure no physical contact.

Our new e-commerce site gives you the opportunity to see our creations such as tabletop or container planters, assorted herb planters for the kitchen, do it your self pansy planter kits, terrariums, etc.

Our design team is busy drafting plans for Spring and Summer landscaping projects; we are meeting with clients outdoors and sharing pictures and files digitally to meet your landscape design needs remotely. We have the capability to bring a plan to life through a colored sketch or 3D renderings. Here too our crews are following all the proper guidelines.  

In times of change, it is good to have things to depend on. The great outdoors is one of them with all that fresh air. If there’s any way we can help bring a little joy into your lives, please give us a call at 203-259-9630.

Take care and stay well!

Best wishes,
