Fluffing up a few properties
Guillerme and I started to work on this property yesterday, but we were only there for a few hours. Today I have Guillerme and Fabio to help me out. Fabio is another guy who is turning out to be a very good "detail" worker, again they are hard to find.
As we were about 2 hours into the job of wedding and fluffing up the beds, the mowing crew showed up and mowed the property. They also mow 5 other properties that are off campus but used by Babson higher ups.
Here as in the other properties we are starting the process of dead heading the flowers and removing the yellow leaves, especially from the Lilly's and Iris's. Some of the annuals here needed to be completely removed, especially from the planters.
The Presidents wife wanted new Chrysanthemums, planted for some upcoming gatherings, that are going to be held at the property. This part of the project was handed over to Rob, who seems to be the pot planter this season.
I am a divorced dad, with one son in college and one daughter, who is married and has my 3 wonderful grandchildren. I live in Grafton, Massachusetts. I have been Landscaping for the past 17 seasons with one company and have spent 3 seasons with 1 other landscape company, here in Massachusetts.
I do all phases of the landscape work at this company, from construction, installation, maintenance, trimming and have a Massachusetts Pesticide License.
