Spring has arrived 2012

Welcome to the first electronic edition of In Bloom! Personally, I like the idea of the paper newsletter, but I'd rather cut costs and keep prices low as we prepare for gas increases this year. This will be a very important form of communication so please take a few minutes to read and click through the links (all of the articles will appear on the Whitehouse Lawns website). And of course, let me know what you think of the new In Bloom and how to make it better.

We will be starting the regular maintenance visits in March as we start to warm up and the turf enters its growing season. The grass usually does not need to be cut every week in March so we will be focusing on cleaning up the main beds of your landscape, picking up any leftover leaves, picking up gumballs (I hate em!), and any leftover debris from the winter storms. Let me know if you have any other items you want taken care of.

First off, running a regular schedule is always a challenge as we go through spring. Life is a heckuvalot easier for everyone when we can come on the same day every week. Unfortunately, it almost never works out that way in March and April. 1 day of rain will throw us off but is pretty easy to make up during the week. 2 days or more of rain can create some challenges. If we have not made it to your house on your regular day and have had frequent rain, we will usually get there on the next day (this might be Saturday if you’re a Friday visit). We will try to give you a call or email to let you know your status if it will be more than 2 days. We will settle in to your regular mowing day of the week as soon as possible. 

We are also very conscious of damaging the turf when working in wet weather. There may be times when we need to skip areas that are really wet, or use smaller equipment if time allows. I’d rather be overly cautious than damage turf at the beginning of the season.
