Supply Chain Interruptions
Many fields have faced unprecedented challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the landscaping services industry feeling our own effects as we prepare for the current season. Severe weather in many regions of the country has killed or badly damaged certain varieties of trees, shrubs, and perennials, creating shortages for planting this year. Some growing facilities have been forced to close all together, further limiting the selection. This comes at a time of increased nationwide demand, as many people discovered home gardening as a relaxing and rewarding way to escape the difficulties of last year, and are planning to continue into this new planting season. The experts at Gerbert & Sons view this as an opportunity to suggest and introduce alternatives new varieties for your property, using our relationships with suppliers and knowledge of available local options, including native plantings, to complement your existing landscape and minimize the impact of this shortage.
