Fertilizer and weed spraying Sep 11; lawn aeration the week of Sep 23

BrightView will be back in the Weybridge neighborhood soon to apply fertilizer, spray for broadleaf weeds, and to aerate our lawns. Here’s the proposed schedule:

  • Wed, Sep 11 — Fertilizer and broadleaf weed herbicide spraying
  • Week of Sep 23 — Lawn aeration

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.

NOTES ON LAWN AERATION
For lawn aeration the week of September 23, anyone with “shallow wiring” installed (invisible pet fences, yard lighting, or similar) needs to contact Brent at weybridgelandscape@gmail.com so we can relay your address to BrightView. Lawn aeration pokes deep holes in the lawn and can damage wiring for invisible fences, lighting, and sprinklers, or anything else buried in the yard. Brent will report known sprinkler systems to BrightView, but he needs to know about other systems as well.

Alternatively, you can place flags in the yard to map out where lawn aerators should not go, thereby protecting your in-ground systems.

No lawn mowing planned this week (July 29-Aug 4)

The long stretches of hot dry weather are taking a toll on Weybridge lawns, so Brightview will not be out mowing this week.

Of course, residents may want to consider actively watering their lawns in extended hot and dry periods to keep the grass healthy and a solid Dublin green.

Fertilizer application coming June 21

BrightView has notified us the next fertilizer application is expected on or around Friday, June 21.

As in the past, we recommend you keep pets off the lawn for at least 24 hours after the fertilizer application. If there are sections of lawn you do not want fertilized, you can place lawn flags outlining the area.

Spring cleanup is here!

Our landscaping service provider, BrightView, reports we’re in for the first wave of spring cleanup this week, weather permitting. Staff will comb through front, back, and side yards to get Weybridge ready for normal landscaping maintenance through spring, summer, and fall.

Within the next 2 weeks (by the start of April), BrightView expects to start edging operations as well, getting tree rings, landscaping beds and more just a bit more sharply defined.

Questions? You can contact Brent at weybridgelandscape@gmail.com.

Reminder: 2019 Landscape questionnaire due March 1

questionnaireThough it may not feel like it yet, spring is around the corner, and that means we start another season of landscaping services with BrightView.

As in years past, our Landscape Chairman Brent Kleihauer gathers landscape service preferences from each resident, in case customized services are desired. We distributed paper questionnaires back in December and asked for forms to be turned in by February 1 if possible, and March 1 at the latest.

Well, March 1 is now just a couple weeks away. Do you still have your questionnaire? Do you need another copy? You can download and print another copy here (PDF), then be sure to get it to Brent by the start of next month.

Questions? You can contact Brent at weybridgelandscape@gmail.com.

Save the rake: One more leaf cleanup is coming

Despite the early cold and snow, the leaves are still falling from some trees in Weybridge. But BrightView, our landscaping services firm, isn’t done with us yet.

We expect one (1) more leaf cleaning from BrightView in the days ahead, so there’s no need to whip out the rake and drag your leaves to the edge of the street.
