Landscaping season is picking up, but so are concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic. Weybridge recently received the following message from our BrightView account manager, addressing how their landscaping teams are taking precautions to protect our residents. If you have any questions about BrightView’s services, feel free to contact our Landscape Officer Brent Kliehauer (email@example.com).
As the COVID-19 situation continues to progress and evolve, we at BrightView continue to take the necessary precautions to keep all crews, residents and employees safe.
- We have staggered our crew start times in the morning to limit the amount of interaction between crew members to a minimum
- Daily symptom screenings before crews are sent out for the day
- All trucks are sanitized at the end of the day
- No crew member is allowed to set foot in any indoor facility on the property
Not only is this at the forefront of our continued maintenance services, we also look to keep your property’s safe as well during this difficult time.
I’ve attached a letter released by the National Association of Landscape Professionals explaining why landscape maintenance is considered an essential service. “We provide a service that is necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation, and essential operation of residences, Essential Activities, and Essential Businesses.” I hope this can begin to ease your mind during this pandemic. Please reach out with any questions and we look forward to providing next level service this 2020 season.
Thanks and stay safe,
BrightView Landscape Services
BrightView will be in Weybridge this week to apply lawn fertilizer and chemicals designed to prevent the growth of crabgrass and broadleaf weeds. They expect to be here Wednesday and Thursday, April 1 and 2.
NOTES ON FERTILIZER AND WEED SPRAYING
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.

Weybridge Ladies… unfortunately this month’s lunch outing has been canceled again. Lunch organizer Sharon Foster let us know yesterday the March lunch is now off the calendar, in light of growing concerns around the novel coronavirus, which can be relatively risky for seniors. The lunch was originally set for Thursday, March 19.
The next run of the Weybridge Ladies Lunch is scheduled for Thu, Apr 16 at 11:30am over at the Monte Carlo Italian Kitchen in Powell. Check out the complete list of lunches for 2020 on our Calendar page anytime.
Weybridge Ladies… a bit of bad news. Lunch organizer Sharon Foster let us know today the February lunch has, unfortunately, been canceled. The lunch was originally set for Feb 20, but it looks like we’ll be waiting until March for the next gathering.
Sharon reports a variety of attendees have reported they are recovering from illnesses, have conflicting appointments, are out on vacations, and so forth.

The first official day of spring will be March 19 this year, and surprise: that’s less than 40 days away. So, while we’ve seen snow over the past few days, the truth is it’s been a fairly mild winter up to now, and we might see more unusually mild days in the weeks ahead. Given the milder-than-usual winter, our landscaping firm — BrightView — is thinking they’d like to get started with some “spring” cleanup, possibly as soon as the next 2-3 weeks (yes, in February!).
What might we expect in Weybridge in the next 2-3 weeks (weather permitting)?
- Edging around trees and landscape beds (edging might also be touched up again before mulching comes later in the spring)
- Mulching and/or pickup of any remaining leaves from the fall
- Blowing off hard surfaces and beds
Part of the goal of starting earlier is to get a jump on the spring season so we’re lined up for a more timely delivery of mulch this year.

Weybridge trash collection will be delayed 1 day over the next two weeks due to the Christmas Day and New Years Day holidays. Garbage and recycling should be out for pickup in the mornings on:
- Thursday, December 26, 2019
- Thursday, January 2, 2020
If you’re doing any yard work and need yard waste collection, that schedule is unchanged, with pickups on Mondays.
You can learn more about the modified schedule and rules about recycling on the City of Dublin website here.
