Landesign crew at work on the BVV Spring Clean Up
Spring is a wonderful time of year; everything comes alive! April is a special month as we take part in a national volunteer event, hosted by PLANET, a national landscaping association. This day was created by the lawn care and landscape industry to draw attention to the importance of green spaces.

Bennett Valley Vision (BVV) is an all volunteer group that is focused on making their neighborhood, an even nicer place to live. With their vision for ways to improve several bennett valley vision logoBennet Valley public areas, they recruit volunteers for two annual clean up days. Weeding, pruning, litter pick-up, spreading mulch, and plantings all took place on
April 13th and Landesign was a returning The Traversosvolunteer.

Not only do we enjoy taking part, it's so nice to be recognized by people like Mary Traverso, a BVV member. "Thanks again for sending your volunteers. They really are a professional group that does such nice work." For more information or to get involved, go to bennettvalleyvision

Save Waterconserve water
Do Your Part
At Landesign we take water conservation seriously and and it shows in the work we do for our clients. May is Water Awareness Month and as the weather warms up, here are some useful tips. For more info,

1. Check sprinkler system for proper function and leaks
2. Water a maximum of 3x a week, 4-6 minutes per station
3. Replace batteries in your controller so that settings are intact, even after a power surge or blackout
4. Invest in a smart timer which automatically adapts irrigation to the weather
5. Use native Californian plants, grasses & shrubs


Weed Abatement
We Can Help!  high weed mowing
As a property owner you are responsible for maintaining HIGH WEEDS throughout the dry season - May 15 - November 1. The defensible space should extend at least 30 feet from your home in all directions and also include fire precautions such as:

* Remove dead tree limbs overhanging your roof or chimney
* Create common areas between structures
* Clear flammable vegetation near wood piles and fuel storage containers
* Clear pine needles, and all debris from roofs on your property

Local fire departments require all high weeds to be cut down by June 1st to avoid fines. Call Bob Cerri at  707 578-2657 to schedule service.
