MAY NEWSLETTER 2014

 

 

Everyone here at Waldron Landscape was relieved the rains finally arrived in February, March, and April to give us a green and colorful Spring. I’m sure you were also happy that there won’t be mandatory water rationing this year. Water conservation is always a priority and we want to help you keep the gardens happy without wasting resources. Just the high price of water is reason enough to be a little conservative. Let us know if you need help with leaks or just setting irrigation timers. It’s also time to plant vegetables and begin high weed whacking. Our guys have already begun weed cutting and in one instance on 7th St E discovered 6 rattle snakes in one field!

 

I recently promoted Rafael Casillas to maintenance manager. He will be doing more estimating and trouble-shooting. He’ll get a breather on May 9th when he heads down to Ciudad Guzman to visit family and friends for a brief vacation. Long time employee Jose Mejia is moving to Boise, Idaho to be closer to his wife’s family. We’ll miss Jose and wish him well. Juvenal has planted most of our community vegetable garden here at the corporation yard. I commandeered two rows for bush beans and my brother Dave (some of you may remember him) planted 4 tomato plants. We put everything on a drip line and timer to save water.

 

When I bought the business from my brother Dave last year, he had a few addendums in the contract. One was that I periodically report on his cats in the newsletter and that I donate to the projects for which he volunteers. Well, the cat part is easy. Dave tells me that Bella is still as sweet as ever and loves to perch on his lap at every opportunity, and that 18 year old Slim is getting a little arthritic and wobbly. Despite going up the stairs one at a time and losing his once pogo stick-like jumping ability, Slim still has a good appetite and sleeps away his days on an old sleeping pad set on low. The donations Dave requests are given happily since our company has always had a policy of helping the community. Dave only had to put me in a brief head lock to convince me to donate mulch for the Rotary Club cleanup at the Vintage House May 10th and to become a corporate sponsor for the Rotary Club’s big fundraiser “Applause” to be held at Hanna Center August 23rd. I may go to that one if my neck brace is off by then.
