Brightview is on-site this week starting up the next round of pruning in Weybridge. Our apologies for the late notice, but they could be in your yard as soon as today — Thursday, August 27.
Brightview describes their service like this:
This consists of more tip pruning, touching up stray branches that may have been missed in the first round or others that have already grown since then. This round is to get things in good shape for the fall.
If you have any shrubs or other plants you do NOT want to be pruned, you can apply flags to them. Otherwise the crews are instructed to follow the pruning plan developed earlier this year, using input from the annual landscaping survey sent to all residents.
The lunch will follow social distancing rules in the Bogey’s large outdoor dining area. Though not required by law, face masks are recommended for the safety of our residents and the restaurant staff.
Do you plan to attend? Sharon needs to know the attendee count as soon as possible, so please contact her with your plans to attend no later than Tuesday, August 18. Please contact Sharon at 614-659-7819 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Need a ride? Sharon can also help with coordinating rides.
Did you know there are both laws and rules on the books about how you handle your pet in Dublin, in Muirfield, and therefore in Weybridge, too?
City of Dublin code specifically states dogs must be kept “under control” when off leash in public areas, or must otherwise be on a leash. They don’t mention cats being on a leash because… you know… they’re cats.
Similarly, you may have seen repeated email reminders from Muirfield Village that pet owners — especially folks walking their pets — are required to pick up after their pets when they do their business, if you know what we mean.
These rules and laws are in place to keep Weybridge (and Muirfield, and Dublin) clean and presentable, as well as safe for the pets, kids, and everyone else enjoying our common areas, walking trails, yards, and so forth.
So please: leash your cat — or dog — or keep them under control, but also be sure to clean up after them. Your neighbors will thank you!
Picking up after your dog is not only being a good neighbor, it’s the law in Dublin. It’s also good for the environment—dog poop left on the ground can make its way into our sewer systems during rain events, polluting freshwater supplies.
BrightView reports their subcontractor TruGreen plans to be back in Weybridge on Thursday, August 13 to apply the third round of fertilizer and weed control spray. This helps prevent the growth of crabgrass and broadleaf weeds.
Special Note on Turf Treatments If you have areas of your lawn you do not want fertilized or sprayed, you can place lawn flags to mark areas that are off-limits. If you need flags, they are available on Brent Kleihauer’s front stoop.
For areas that are sprayed and fertilized, homeowners with pets or children are advised to keep them off the lawn for at least 24 hours after the chemicals are applied.
