Weybridge lawn mowing update

BrightView, our landscaping provider, has advised us that they will be mowing a little differently this week due to the recent heavy rains.

They will be mowing this week, but they will be a bit more selective on where they mow. They will mow anywhere that will support it — that is, areas that won’t sustain turf damage from the lawn mowing equipment. Some low-lying or poorly-drained areas may still be too wet or muddy to safely support their gear.

They feel a little long grass — temporarily — is better than rutting up yards and tearing up turf, which could easily become a problem into next year. They’ll resume a more normal mowing pattern as the ground firms up.

Shrub pruning set for August 31

BrightVew Landscape plans to be in the Weybridge neighborhood on or around Friday, August 31 to perform a touch-up shrub pruning (date dependent on weather). This pruning is only for new growth, as a follow-up to pruning from earlier in the summer.

If you have shrubs or bushes you do NOT want BrightView to trim, please put a brightly-colored ribbon on those shrubs and bushes.

Questions?

Please contact Brent Kleihauer, our Weybridge Landscape Officer. He has ribbon on his front porch if you need some. He can be reached at weybridgelandscape@gmail.com

Dry lawn? Don’t forget to water!

Do you have brown patches in your lawn? Perhaps it’s a result of our recent dry spell or maybe drainage on one part of your property lets water run off faster than others. Whatever the cause, if your turf is dry and the grass isn’t thriving, you may need to water the lawn.

Some folks wonder whether our landscaping provider should handle these brown patches. Sadly, no. Bare patches of grass and dying grass are the responsibility of homeowners. You may need to water or re-seed to keep your lawn green. In fact, the Weybridge Warranty Deed requires residents to provide water to their lawns as needed (see section 4-B).

Any questions about how to care for your lawn? Feel free to contact our landscaping expert, Brent Kleihauer at weybridgelandscape@gmail.com.
