Weybridge lawn chemical treatment expected Mon, Aug 15

Late last week we were notified by BrightView of a lawn chemical application coming tomorrow — Monday, August 15. They did not specify what chemicals these would be, but a year ago at this time it was a “turf treatment” service.

While this is short notice, 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.

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.

Another round of pruning set to start next week

Next week (July 18-22) we’re expecting Brightview to do some light pruning when they’re working in the Weybridge neighborhood. The pruning is only for new growth on bushes or shrubs to shape them up.

If you have shrubs or other plants you do not want to be pruned, apply flags to them as soon as possible. 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.

If you need some flags, Landscape Co-Chair Karen Vincent has some available on her front steps at no charge (9235 Stratton).

Turf treatment, including chemical application, set for Thu, May 26

Ready for summer? BrightView will be in Weybridge tomorrow, Thursday, May 26 to apply lawn fertilizer and chemicals intended to prevent the growth of crabgrass and broadleaf weeds in our lawns.

Our apologies for the late notice, but if you have areas of your lawn you do┬ánot want fertilized or sprayed, you can place lawn flags to mark areas off-limits to the BrightView team. You’ll need to do that this evening or very early tomorrow.

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.

Mulch expected Fri, May 20

Our landscaping provider, BrightView, is currently planning to be in Weybridge this Friday, May 20 to deliver our annual mulch and begin adding it to beds around the community (weather permitting). It’s likely to take a couple business days (without rain) to complete the installation.

Mulch is provided based on your Landscaping Questionnaires, filled out earlier this year.

Note that BrightView intends to “blow” mulch into place this year, similar to past years, so be prepared for some noise and dust — closing windows would be a good idea during the installation.

Questions about mulch or other landscaping matters? Please contact Cate Monks or Karen Vincent, our Landscape Co-Chairs, at weybridgelandscape@gmail.com for more information.

Please welcome Weybridge’s new Landscape Co-Chairs

As the 2022 landscaping season gets started, Weybridge has a new pair of volunteer Landscape Chairs to help us work with BrightView and keep our neighborhood looking great. Residents Karen Vincent and Cate Monks have graciously agreed to be our new volunteer landscaping coordinators and are already on the job.

By way of introduction, Cate has provided the following:

Hello neighbors! I am volunteering as Landscape Co-Chair this year, along with Karen Vincent. We are getting a bit of a late start this season, and we apologize in advance for any problems that may have cropped up.

I have already met with our representative from BrightView and have given them all the information from the 2022 Landscape Questionnaires we collected over the winter. We’re gearing up for a great season!

I know several residents experienced problems this past week with some aggressive edging that cut some phone, TV, and Internet cables. Hopefully you’ve been in touch with your provider, as they should provide repairs at no charge. If you have additional questions or concerns about this please email us at the address below.

We appreciate your patience as Karen and I learn how best to communicate with BrightView. Meanwhile, I am delighted to be in the neighborhood and look forward to getting to know you all!

And Karen provided this bit of additional background info:

Hello Weybridge! My husband Rick and I moved to Weybridge about 2 years ago. We currently split our time between Ohio and Florida. We have 4 children and 10 grandchildren, some of whom also live here in Muirfield. I’ve also previously served as a Landscape Chair for another HOA, and I’m looking forward to meeting everyone as we go through the season!
