As of today we have six (6) current clients who have requested renewal of their monthly “maintenance contracts.” And so we are offering this service starting tomorrow June 1st. A few of you have already been in touch and are ready to start, please txt today…..and we be there tomorrow. Our service is offered from June 1 through November 30.
Maintenance will include watering as needed, light tidying of debris in the garden beds and using the leaf blower to keep your patios and sidewalks ship/shape.
When we visit we will make note of gardening task items that we can accomplish at our regular gardening rate and notify you of these items, so we can schedule “work task” appointments to complete your work on your schedule, and ours. We will continue serving new customers in Parkfairfax and Fairlington, so “work by appointment” is absolutely necessary as we go forward this year.
Our monthly fee is $200 for maintenance. If the temps are over 86 degrees we will water as is necessary, until there is a break in the temperature. A number of you don’t want or have time to water. Folks…..It’s simply essential in VA during the summer months and upon the planting of anything in your garden, for at least ten days to establish new root growth. In fact, tomorrow it’s going to be 84. And on a Friday 91. Here we go…..!
Plants need water. And most of the time….your garden needs water every three days. In between our watering, your plants have an inborn system that tells them to stretch their roots to seek moisture from the soil. But VA is in a drought condition so from now on….you do need to be watering. If temps remain mild, a once a week good watering should take care of it. Please choose early morning or later in the evening.
You can txt or email us with your permission to START.
