Woodvale Ave Update - 7/16/2020

Posted on July 16, 2020 at 2:01 PM by Tyler Dickinson


The following information was also hand delivered to properties along the project limits this afternoon. 

Around a month ago, the contractor installed sod in front of your home as part of the restoration from the Woodvale Avenue Project. Since then, you may have noticed the contractor watering this sod to help ensure it continues to grow and thrive.

However, as the contractor has met their obligation, watering responsibilities now fall upon the homeowner. In an effort to maintain the health of the new sod, below are some instructions on future watering.

  • During times of excessive heat, residents should begin watering on a daily basis.  If high temperatures persist, it is imperative for the life of the newly planted grass that it receives a substantial amount of watering daily.
  • Water every day or every other day depending on heat, drought and wind. Provide ¼” to ½” of water per time. Your lawn will develop a stronger root system with less frequent but deeper watering.
  • Hot, dry, and windy conditions will require additional watering.

The Village of Deerfield would like to thank you for their cooperation throughout the construction project. If you should have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the Village of Deerfield Engineering Department at 1-847-317-2490.
