OCTOBER 2016 NEWSLETTER

 

 The leaves are coming down and being  whisked away in our trucks to the recycler. The timers are being set for fewer watering days. Perennials are being trimmed and all this activity, and more, is done by our faithful crews, known to me at least as ‘los jardineros guapos’, the best gardeners in town. Without their hard work and good attitude, I’d be cutting out paper dolls while mumbling to myself in some dark corner. As it is, they not only make my job here at Waldron Landscape a pleasure, but they’re fun to be around before and after work as well.

Among themselves, the guys do a lot of joking and kidding. One form of kidding is in their use of nicknames for each other. For instance, if you like to sing while you work, as does Cesario Contreras, you’ll be called ‘el canario’, the canary. If you have green eyes like Miguel Gutierrez, your nickname will be ‘el tigre’ , the tiger. Don’t brag too much about how many cows you have back in Mexico or ‘mil vacas’ (a thousand cows) will end up as your moniker. Luis Rangel spent his youth selling his mother’s donuts door to door and for his efforts is now known as ‘Maza’ (dough). Jesus Gutierrez, being the youngest and shortest of his brothers is called ‘molcate’ (little ear of corn).

One of my goals as owner of Waldron Landscape is to keep the camaraderie alive and well. It’s important to provide vacations, holidays, medical and 401-K plans but our enjoyment here is just as critical. I think this is even true for you, our clients. I’ve been told many times by you, how much you enjoy the attitude of our men.

We’ll be using our leaf blowers this fall to help speed up the cleanup. A placard in our office reads ‘no levante polvo’, a nice way to say keep your machines at the absolute lowest volume to do the job. If you want us to continue using the blower, on November 8th , vote no on measure V. If you want to ban the blower, vote yes.

The new rain year began on October 1st with the first measurable rainfall. We’ll always be trying to conserve water whether it rains or not, so don’t hesitate to call us if you need help setting your timer or fixing any leaks
