Spring Update

May 27th, 2015

Good morning everyone!

I hope you all had an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend – as wet as it was. With all the rain (and because of the holiday) our crews are a couple days behind, but we’re pushing to get caught up.

Just a quick update on the services happening now, and the services that will be coming up for our commercial customers (and for the residential customers that are signed up):

- As the lilacs are finishing blooming, we will be starting our bush trimming next week. Julio has been with Alex’s Lawn and Turf for over 11 years, and is our shrub trimming specialist. Look for him to be out trimming up shrubs in the next couple weeks. If there are any specific areas of concern, or shrubs that need attention/need to be left untouched, give the office a call or shoot me an e-mail so we can make a note of it!

- With all the rain we’ve been getting (which is of course a good thing for lawns), I’m sure many of you are seeing weeds pop up in the landscape beds. It’s supposed to be pretty toasty today and tomorrow, so we can expect the weeds to be just as happy as the rest of the plants. Our crews have started their weed control spraying in the landscape beds to reign in the vigorous spring weeds. We do stagger the crews spraying schedule so they’re not spraying all of their properties one week, and none of them the next week – so if you haven’t been sprayed yet, expect it to be done this week or next week, and on a regular basis for the rest of the summer after that.

As always, we encourage you to keep an eye out for areas of concern and let us know! I am always out doing site inspections, but you look at your property every day and are sure to see things before I do.

Thank you very much from all of us here at Alex’s Lawn and Turf!

Talk to you soon,
