Many businesses, including landscapers, are back to work in Houston, as floodwaters from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey have subsided.
“Most of the water subsided late last week,” said Jason Mathers, president of Houston-based Monarch Landscape Management. “(But Monarch) returned to work Thursday, Aug. 31, and worked purposefully since Harvey’s departure. My team accepted the challenge and worked through the weekend – including Labor Day – with a goal to catch up on our properties by the end of this week.”
He noted that road closures led to many traffic delays the past two weeks, but he said most major roads are now open as of Sept. 11.
