Maintenance consists of but is not limited to:

  • Monthly mowing to ensure sufficient Bermuda plant coverage.
  • Summer fertilization to promote healthy growth, fall overseeding and organic fertilization to prevent weeds.
  • Monitoring for repair, including desilting, pipe replacement, slope regrading, graffiti removal, and landscaping, to maintain proper drainage.
