Yes, we're signing up new customers too!
Pillywiggins prefer spending their time working in the gardens, not some stuffy office. We conduct most of our business electronically. It reduces our time in the office, it's more efficient, eco-friendly & GREEN! We can exchange project info, landscape designs, estimates, photos & videos online. Invoices are always emailed & multiple electronic payment options are accepted.
Health & Safety On The Job Site
- We're no strangers to working & living out in the boonies. We come prepared. Our vehicles are always stocked with First Aid Kits, face masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, wet wipes, bottled water, paper towels & cleansers.
- Many of our projects (especially Spring tasks) are completed by one Pillywiggin, just one, using his own tools of trade.
- Most of our work sites are vacant this time of year. Feel free to call, text or email us with any questions or instructions. If you are home when we arrive, we will adhere to the 6' social distancing requirement.
- Our suppliers are also taking extra safety precautions. Mulch, soil & plant materials will be ordered online & paid for electronically. Materials will be delivered on site and/or loaded onto our trailers without any physical contact between ourselves & our vendors.

Psssst. Wanna Buy A Plant?
Sun Basket Meal Kit #4
Chicken Meatza with Mushrooms, Black Olives, Zucchini & Arugula Pesto
This was our least favorite of the 4 dishes. Maybe because it wasn't what we expected? Turns out, Meatza is like a pizza with a ground chicken "crust." It didn't look too appetizing in the making but it tasted good. Jason put the black olives on his half & I put the mushrooms on mine, so that worked out for us. I think this would be an excellent dish IF it had a bread dough crust, more sauce & cheese. :D
My First Easter
Easter was different but we made the best of it. We usually go to Grandma & Grandpa Pillywiggins farm for a family gathering. This year we stayed home, pulled a ham from the freezer, fixed our own Easter dinner with the potatoes, carrots & yams and spent the day on the phone. We checked in with our family & friends to wish all a Happy Easter. From the U.P. to Lansing, Florida, Colorado & Oregon all were safe & well. You can't ask for a better Easter than that!

At this time, it is still uncertain how our supply chain will be effected. That being said, most of the materials we use are obtained locally and most can be obtained without direct physical contact. We are hopeful but prepared to make do with limited resources.
Spring is also a time to be hopeful, for beautiful things are on the way.
Stay home, be safe and remain positive.
