Below is a summary of work operations on each street.  Scheduled days of work may change due to weather, equipment breakdown, or other delays. 

Any areas of sod that appear to be dying will be assessed 30 days after placement.  If the new sod is not live and knitted to the ground at this time, it will be rejected and the landscaper will replace these rejected areas at their expense.
