Welcome neighbor, we live up a ways on Quietwoods Dr., at least eventually. Have had the house for over 1 1/2 years but only been there about 7 weeks in total. Cannot speak to housecleaners, but agree with other posters that Charlene, the Village Sitter is THE BEST! As far as lawn goes, I have had all kinds of problems, probably the worst lawn in Lake Deaton. Seems to be a soil compaction/pH issue, possibly some grading as well. I have met with the owner of the contracting co. that built the house, the head of home warranty, and have spoken with the Univ of FL agricultural liason to TV. While most of these entities point the finger at someone else, Dean's has hung in there trying to fix the issue. The senior technician, Ronnie, is very commited to the job his company does, and is continuing to work with me on a resolution. We seem to be an anomaly, many of our neighbors use Dean's and have a beautiful lawn. So I guess if the guy with the ugly lawn can still recommend them, they must be doing something right.

Hi neighbor! We are also on Quietwoods Drive and use Deans. I have been told by my wife that we need to do something about the moles in our yard back in Ohio. I told her to just slow down while mowing the yard with the riding mower to smooth the ride.

The guy I play golf with lives on Fellowship, in fact we played Havana yesterday. I would pass this along, but unfortunately he's flying to London today with is grandkids for 30 days in Europe. I'll keep this in my memory for when he returns.

BTW, I used the Village Hangman four years ago for our house, he's legit.

Thanks for the info...we are going to call Deans before the settlement on July 16. The lawn on the begonia we bought doesn't seem to be the best. The area is really beautiful, however.
By the way, I grew up on Staten Island and my husband grew up in Flatbush! We have been living in Mexico for the last seven years and are in culture shock.
We hope to meet you sometime...we are on Innfields Ct.

Default House Cleaning Wanted

Additional recommendations for a house cleaning person or service once every two weeks in Lake Deaton Village would be appreciated.

Does anyone know if Jackie is still recommended and available every other week, year round, for 3 hours of house cleaning?

Small world. My wife grew up on Staten Island, my father was from Flatbush. I lived 4 years in Flatbush and 3 years on Staten Island before moving upstate. See you around
