Corvias Military Living to provide new services

The to-do lists for Edwards on-base residents will soon be shorter. Corvias Military Living will provide new services aimed at making life easier for families beginning in September.

Residents will no longer need to mow their grass beginning Sept. 1. Instead, Corvias’s contractor, Mainscape, Inc. will complete the chore. Lawns will be mowed more frequently during the growing season, and less frequently when the grass is dormant. Residents can view their home’s September lawn care schedule at airforce.corviasmilitaryliving.com/edwards. Mainscape, Inc. will also provide seasonal services, including spring and fall clean-ups, weeding, and shrub pruning.

“We are excited to extend these services to our Air Force families and give Edwards residents more time with their families,” said JC Calder, program manager at Corvias. “All residents have to do is prepare their yard for their designated lawn care day and we will take care of the rest.”

Residents must do the following to receive lawn care:

  • Remove toys, trash, furniture, and other items from grassy areas.
  • Remove pet waste from the yard.
  • Keep pets indoors on the service day.
  • Unlock gates.

Families who prefer to maintain their lawn must contact the Community Office. Residents who opt-out of lawn care services are expected to mow their lawn to the same standard of Mainscape, Inc.

In addition to lawn care, pest control will be available year-round. Service details and dates will be provided to residents prior to the first pest control treatment. Residents may also submit a service request to the Community Office when pest control services are needed.

Corvias will also provide curbside pick-up for trash, bulk trash and recycling.

Joe Torres Inc., a Corvias contractor, will coninue to collect refuse each week. The current collection schedule will remain in effect and can be viewed at airforce.corviasmilitaryliving.com/edwards.
