While we’re all nestled away in Weybridge this cold and snowy winter, it’s easy to forget spring and summer are coming. Believe it or not, in just a couple more months spring will be here! And once the sunshine, rain, and warmth return, everything outside our windows will start to grow again — the grass, shrubs, trees, flowers, and more.
We manage Weybridge’s green growth primarily through our landscaping agreement with BrightView. But that relationship — like our grass, turf, and mulch — requires some management. That’s why one of the most important volunteer roles in Weybridge is our “Landscaping Chair” — the person that acts as the central point of contact for residents and BrightView alike. This role keeps BrightView focused on high-quality services and communicates with individual residents about any concerns and their own landscaping responsibilities.
And we need a new Landscaping Chair. Can you help?
The Landscaping Chair Role
Like all the volunteer jobs in Weybridge, this person is a resident of Weybridge and spends a bit of time most months coordinating landscaping for the community, keeping the neighborhood beautiful while holding down our quarterly dues. This role talks with our BrightView service manager, takes calls and emails from residents about landscaping questions or concerns, and intermittently monitors the quality of the work BrightView teams are performing throughout Weybridge. The Chair also often attends quarterly Weybridge Board meetings (but not always).
To be clear, the Landscaping Chair does not mow lawns or weed flower beds! At most the Chair will occasionally walk around the neighborhood to see how our landscaping is doing and chat with residents about grass, trees, shrubs, and so forth. The job is all about observation, communication, and coordination.
New Chair Needed Now
Our most recent chair, Weybridge resident Scott Jones, had to resign due to professional workload concerns. So before the new season of landscaping gets started, we need a new volunteer from the community. Could it be you? We hope so!
