Any type of area needs ongoing maintenance on commercial properties. Most often property owners focus on the buildings but forget about the grounds. Through the use of year-round landscape maintenance, it is possible to not only improve the aesthetics of the property but also to help reduce overall landscaping costs.
Ideally, any professional commercial landscaping company will recommend programs for services that extend over all seasons. Of course, the services offered throughout the year will vary based on the growing conditions and the need for specific tasks to be completed.
The choice of full landscape maintenance throughout the year has the immediate benefit of keeping the property in top condition. In the spring through autumn the grounds are mowed, trees and shrubs are pruned, and gardens are maintained to highlight flowers and vegetation.
In the fall through spring months, the landscaping service will complete plant maintenance, such as complete pruning and shaping of trees and shrubs. They will also remove leaves and other debris, limiting the buildup of molds and fungus which can impact growth the following season.
This also keeps the grounds looking great, even when there may not be active plant and lawn growth. Fertilizing and irrigation can also be customized to the season and the geographic location for optimal growth and health of the landscape.
Healthy, maintained lawns, trees, shrubs, and gardens are more resistant to disease, insects and even drought to other adverts types of environmental factors. Through effective landscape maintenance programs, the life of plants can be extended, reducing the cost of replacing trees, shrubs or lawns.
As these replacements can be costly, and they will impact the aesthetics of the property, prevention is highly effective and will be a benefit to any commercial or industrial property.
