Amid 2020’s Toll & Toil, Giving Thanks

Nov. 17th, 2020 by W Scott McAdam Jr.

As we approach the holiday season, it’s safe to say that this year has brought challenging times to McAdam Landscaping. We are not alone in enduring hardships—this pandemic has been difficult on everyone.

That’s probably why 2020 has also been one of the most rewarding in our 42-year history: together, we have made it through. So, as Thanksgiving nears, we have much to be thankful for—and it comes under two major headings:

For Our Staff

With the COVID-19 pandemic significantly affecting so many facets of daily life, we are acutely aware of the physical, mental, and emotional impact it has had, and continues to have, on everyone. Through the year’s volatility, our office and field staffs have demonstrated remarkable commitment.

We thank you!

For Our Community

From residential customers to associations, businesses and municipalities, our clients have continued to entrust us to provide a variety of services. While daily life has certainly been turned upside down, we have tried our best to provide some level of normalcy and bring joy to them.

Whether a new landscape, freshly manicured lawns, or even garden center products that propelled a customer toward a new hobby and rejuvenated love for the outdoors as they get their hands dirty, we thank you!

Wishing you all a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
