Asphalt Paving Completed. Landscape Restoration Being Scheduled.

Work Completed Last Week, July 18th to July 22nd 
·         Final cleaning and work to prepare for paving the final layer of asphalt pavement
·         Applying layer of tack coat (oil) and sand prior to asphalt paving
·         Paving final surface of asphalt pavement

Work Remaining to be completed
·         Asphalt driveway restoration
·         Sod installation, weather dependent
·         Additional planting to be installed

Now that the final layer of asphalt surface has been paved, the remaining items can be completed. The most significant items remaining to complete are sod and asphalt driveway restorations. These two item were not completed prior to asphalt surface paving in order to match the final asphalt surface.

The asphalt driveway restorations are being scheduled and should be completed in the near future.

We are still determining the best option for sod installation.  At this time, the contractor has indicated they would like to install the sod and perform heavy watering to ensure the sod lives and a healthy stand of grass is established. We are continuing to monitor the weather conditions and discuss the best option with the contractor. Once a final schedule is determined, we will be sure to pass the information along.

Hopefully you are happy with the improvements to your neighborhood and once the final items are completed, your lawns will be restored to looking the way they did prior to the work beginning.

Asphalt Surface Paving Scheduled for Next Week

Work Completed Last Week, July 11th to July 15th
·         Rough grading of areas to be landscaped
·         Installation and grading of topsoil

Work Anticipated to be completed Next week, July 18th to July 22nd
·         Asphalt surfacing paving
·         Asphalt driveway restoration
·         Sod installation, weather dependent

Paving of the asphalt surface layer is scheduled for next week. Additional information will be provided when the schedule is finalized regarding travel cautions and restrictions during the paving operations and prior when the existing asphalt will have a thin layer of oil sprayed on it. Following the asphalt surface paving, the landscape restoration with sod and asphalt driveway restorations will be completed. The reason these final restorations will be completed following the asphalt paving is so the final grades will match the newly paved surface.

The contractor has completed the installation and grading of topsoil in those areas disturbed during construction. The timing of the sod installation is still being discussed. Due to the hot weather and lack of rain the past few weeks, this is not the optimum time for sod. If installation is delayed to a time with more favorable growing conditions, we will keep you posted regarding when the sod installation will occur. Our goal is to ensure a healthy stand of grass is established.

Thanks again for all your patience and the end of the project is near!!!!
