Dear Valued Client, September 10, 2009
As summer winds down and we anticipate fall, we begin planning
and preparing for the cooler months. The summer lawns will be
de-thatched and scalped for seeding, flowers will be replaced,
and the landscape will take on a whole new look during the next
two months. We have included a summary of what will be transpiring
in the next few weeks or so for the fall transition. It is as
Fall Transition Schedule for September/October 2009
Week of September 21st 2009 Discontinue water to lawns
Week of September 28th 2009 Lower mowers and begin scalping/1st
Week of October 5th 2009 Lower mowers and scalp/2nd phase
Week of October 12th 2009 Complete scalping /Begin seeding
Week of October 19th 2009 Complete seeding/Begin flower installation
Week of October 26th 2009 Continue flower installation
Week of November 2nd 2009 Complete flower installation
This is a slow and painstaking operation so please bear with us.
The grass clippings will be disposed of off-site or in roll-off
dumpsters since the amount of debris will be substantial. Our routine
trimming schedule will be interrupted during this period as well,
but fear not; we will be doing nothing but trimming for the first
two to three weeks while the seed is germinating. If there are
any areas of lawn you do not want seeded or would like converted
to granite, let us know now.
This is a general schedule and may change due to weather conditions
or your property characteristics.
We will keep you abreast of any changes during this period.
You will be receiving an invoice for your winter rye seed. These
figures are based on estimates only. There may be additional charges
for more seed. Any soil amendments such as mulch, fertilizer, and
herbicide will all be billed separately.
We are looking forward to the cooler weather and a great fall
Thank you for your continued business and patronage.
