  • Sedum coverage was approximately 90%. There were a few bare spots observed to which we spread some Sedum and soil from the dead planters.
  • Sedum appear to be in good health overall although some areas did not have such a great mix of vegitation.
  • Slow release XFC organic fertilizer was applied.
  • Very few grass and weeds were found; seemed to be of 3 types, one with a very woody root.
  • Replanted the black current tree. Used leftover soil from dead planter for bare patches.
  • Sedums found growing near the edges of the flagstone pavers. They were transplanted into bare spots.
  • Trimmed back Sedum on ballast rocks edges.
  • Cleaned leaves and debris away from the roof drain.
  • Enjoyed some quiet weeding time
