F.A.Q.; What our Homeowners Want to Know About Landscaping

By the Customer Response Team Representatives

It’s that time of year again! With the passing of the Victoria Day Long Weekend, landscaping season is upon us in earnest, and we’re underway in Cranston’s Riverstone. While there was some discussion about starting seasonal work in March (!) this year, Mother Nature reminded us that we’re just a weekend camping trip away from a heavy snowfall warning in Alberta, at this time of year. Hopefully we’re done with the white stuff for a few months, so let’s talk sod!

If you have purchased one of our homes in a community/phase that includes landscaping to be completed by Cedarglen Homes, here are some of the most frequently asked questions:

When are you going to start landscaping my home?

When all the driveways and the final grading are completed within an area, we then have a general idea of when the landscaping will take place. We then start to schedule each block in succession. Our contractor will be leaving a package at your front door when they begin prepping in your area, including FAQs and watering instructions.

Can we complete a deck and other landscaping on our own prior to the completion of Cedarglen’s landscaping?

Please do not install or build anything in your yard until we have completed our portion of the landscaping. We may need to use backyards in order to access other backyards and building anything in the way may cause unnecessary delays in landscaping completion. The final grade needs to be completed, surveyed and approved prior to us laying sod. If you build something prior to the completion of our landscaping it may be at the wrong height and need to be removed. To avoid unnecessary costs you may incur, please wait until we have completed our portion before beginning any work on your yard.

How do I take care of my yard once complete?

We will be including care and maintenance instructions with the information package left at your door when we begin in your area. If you require clarification or have questions or concerns, please email the Response Team at responseteam@cedarglenhomes.com or give us a call at 403.255.2000, and we will be happy to help.

Stay tuned for more updates!

Have a good weekend,

Cedarglen Homes
