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 not 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.

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!

Questions or concerns about landscaping matters? Contact Cate and/or Karen via email or feel free to call.

Weybridge remembers Mabel Clapp

We regret to announce long-time Weybridge resident Mabel Clapp (9117 Muirkirk Dr) passed away on Monday, January 24, 2002. She was an amazing 103 years old. Weybridge celebrated Mabel’s 100th birthday back in 2018.

All are welcome to send flowers or leave condolences on her memorial page.

Mabel was born to Italian immigrants Peter and Virginia Fiori at the end of World War I. She lived her whole life in central Ohio, growing up on the west side of Columbus and later in Upper Arlington and Dublin. She graduated from West High School in 1936, worked at Mills Buffet, where she met her husband Ferdinand. She retired from Huntington National Bank in 1988. She influenced three generations of her family through her devotion, quiet strength, and selflessness.

She is survived by her son Eric Clapp, her grandchildren Michelle Clapp Hohler, Kevin Clapp, Bethany Wolf Sullivan, Anneliese Wolf Johnson, Susanna Wolf Huffman, and her great grandchildren Corrina, Brock Hohler, Danica, A. J. Clapp, Emma, Jack Sullivan, Mallory, Weston Johnson, and Veronica Huffman.

Robert “Bob” Dean Watts, Age 86, passed away Tuesday, January 11, 2022. He was born November 27, 1935 in Woodsfield, Ohio. He was predeceased by his parents, brother, and sister.

Robert is survived by his wife of 64 years, Josephine, children Beth Stolz, Robert Watts, Brian Watts, Bill Watts, and Lisanne Ludwig, and 12 grandchildren.

Bob was a proud veteran of the U.S Navy and Marine Corps Reserves. He was a hard-working man and retired from Consolidated Freightways as a transport operator after 30 years.

Robert was also a devoted family man. His grandchildren were his greatest love, always supporting them, and being involved by attending their various activities. He was a long-time member of St. Brigid of Kildare, and Knights of Columbus 3rd degree, as well as a member of the Catholic War Veterans post #1936.

He was a bright presence in people’s lives and will be deeply missed. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Bob’s name to St. Brigid of Kildare Church. The family held a private mass at St. Brigid of Kildare.

Private snow removal service available to Weybridge residents

Concerned about shoveling snow from the driveway this winter? In years past, some Weybridge residents have worked with Tom Wiseman (and Jim Severance before Tom), who can provide privately-paid plowing and shoveling services.

As a courtesy to our Weybridge neighbors, here are Tom’s services and options:

  • For existing customers, snow clearing services are $20 per driveway from 2-4 inches; $25 from 4-6 inches; $30 over 6 inches
  • If you contact Tom to plow on the snow event day, the cost is $30 and he’ll plow after he finishes plowing existing customers
  • Service includes shoveling walks to the front door
  • Tom shows up automatically after 1.5 to 2 inch snow events
  • Plowing services start after snow stops falling, and Tom will plow/shovel again after accumulation of an additional 2 inches of snow

He uses a Grasshopper with plow and rubber wheels. To arrange service:
