Visit Report

Dear Ken & Gina,

Below is the Service Report from March 11, 2021.  Let us know if you have any questions.

To print this report, go to the Reports Archives section.


My Dragonfly Gardens


Gina prefers a natural growth pattern while Ken likes a tidy look.  Their detailed instructions emailed to MDG changed.

The priority during the visit became the east property line, then the west property line, both shared with neighbors’ sodded and irrigated lawns. 

Northern exposure with Sunshine Mimosa fell from the To Do list.

Plants look happy. 

The weed rating from 1 to 5, is a 3 (high).

  • Find a balance between clients’ conflicting directive
  • Mostly damage control weeding and very little strategic weeding was performed.

Gardens seem healthy with happy plants

Lots of Dollar weed along the property line that requires root network extraction

Over spraying causes excessive moist, therefore unwanted weeds

Lots of mint with roots similar to Dollar weed, deep and horizontal.

Clumps of grass from neighboring property encroaching in with inadequate root barrier. A 10” to 12” root barrier is recommended.

Strategizing and the east side consumed most of the time. West side was not serviced as planned.

Scarlett Salvia has many new plants/growths emerging in the north bed.  May want to reduce the number in the future and consider reducing the size of the mint bed as well.
