“Even though we had a record amount of rain in June, the past 30 days have been extremely dry,” says Village Forester Jon Yeater. “We strongly encourage residents to water new plantings once a week, rain or shine. Any particular storm event may not bring a good soaking rain adequate for the new plants, and additional water is needed.”
Residents are asked to water new plantings and vegetation in the parkway, the area between sidewalks and the curbs, as well as plantings on their immediate property. “Maintenance of the parkways adjacent to your property is the responsibility of the homeowner,” adds Yeater. “The Village simply does not have the resources to water all of the plants in the various parkways throughout the community, so residents are asked to help out with this beautification effort.”
If you have any questions regarding tree and lawn maintenance, please contact Jon at email@example.com.
