Final Leaf Removal Scheduled - December 6th - 8th
Advantage Landscape will begin the final leaf removal at CountrySide starting Wednesday December 8th and will be on site three days to perform this final pick up. In the case of bad weather such as rain or snow, these dates may become slightly altered.
Our Schedule will include “roughly” beginning and ending in the following order of property locations:
** Unfortunately, due to the size of the property, we are unable to provide a specific set time for where we are working within the dates provided.
6. CountrySide Blvd Street Commons
7. Algonkian Parkway Street Commons
Leaf removal service includes a mix of mulching leaves with mulching blades on mowers where leaves are light to moderate or blowing out leaves and vacuuming up piles from common ground areas and streets. Areas of heavy collections will be blown out and collected using leaf blowers and trucks with tow behind vacuums. Leaf equipment will create dust during dry periods. We do train our crews to be careful and attentive to such conditions and to blow dust off cars when found to settle onto a parked car (this is just air blowing off dust). Our crews are trained to NEVER directly blast cars with dirt, leaves and debris but because we must clean leaves from around cars in parking areas, if you see a crew working in your area and are worried about your car, you might consider moving your car to eliminate such concern. Regardless, we will be working carefully to complete a clean safe service.
Lime Application Scheduled for Specified Common Areas - Beginning 12/11/23
Lime Application Scheduled for Specified Common Areas – Beginning 12/11/23 and will take a week or greater, working through the property to complete.
This is the second application performed this fall at CountrySide. This application will not include aeration of all areas as did the first meaning this is mostly a “product only” application. Lime application will follow a leaf removal scheduled prior to this application.
The reason for this treatment follows recent soil PH testing showing a low balance of the current soil condition. Pelletized Lime is a fine limestone pressed into a round pellet (organic) which is a natural product and considered nontoxic and safe in the environment. When used to balance the PH of the soil properly, it will allow the turfgrass to properly draw in necessary nutrients. When the PH balance of turfgrass is off and in our situation “low”, the turfgrass can begin to starve itself making any other fertilizer and other nutrient applications ineffective. This is the first of a couple applications (spread months apart) that will be necessary to bring the turfgrass soil PH conditions at CountrySide back into alignment.
