Fairfield, Connecticut, was settled in 1639 by Puritans and Congregationalists from the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The settlers formed the area as part of a community where they could practice their religious values separate from the Anglican church. Fairfield would break off into several other cities in the area, including Bridgeport and Redding. Fairfield was burned down by British forces in 1779, but the city would soon rebuild. The city would continue to grow as a prominent suburban site, and housed the world headquarters for General Electric until 2017 when the company moved to Boston.

Be sure not to mow too often. If you mow too often, it's gonna hurt your grass.
We feel a neat lawn with edging is important (with grass blown off walkways/lawn). Mulching grass is fine; however, please, no clumps of grass on the lawn. After professional and reliable service is established, we can add more services as needed.
It’s the yard behind the garage only. There is a gate on right side of garage that opens. It’s broken right now but it will still open to get mower back there.
Just cut yesterday. The dogs will be locked up on the day of your arrival. Thank you
