If you own a business, then you probably understand the importance of curb appeal. No matter how great your services are, no one is going to take you seriously if your front end looks like an abandoned clam shack. This is why we highly recommend investing in commercial landscaping. Lawn care and other property maintenance is often more complicated and time consuming than we might think, and so it is a good idea to leave a lot of it to the professionals. Below are just a few things a good landscaping company can do for you:
Lawns are not just organic astro turf. They wont stay green unless you keep them green, and keeping a lawn lush, green, and trimmed can be a full time job. For example, lawns need very specific nutrients to stay healthy, and the best lawns are periodically fertilized with mulch clippings. These are the kind of detail things a good lawn care company can take care of for you so that you can focus on running your business.
2. Tree Trimming
This is becoming more and more important as big storms like Sandy and Katrina become part of our normal lives. A landscaping company can help you identify trees that are in danger of losing branches during a significant weather event. Landscapers are also usually qualified to diagnose tree and shrub health in general.
3. Snow Plowing
If your base of operations is in a place with a real winter, getting a commercial snow removal service during the colder months is essential. Snow plowing is a huge time suck and it takes specialized equipment and technical skill. That and let’s be real–who wants to spend any time at all snow plowing if they can help it?! Best of all, most companies offer a pay per plow option if you just want to cherry pick service for particularly bad storms, or a pay per season option if you want to never think about snow again. So get on the horn and get rid of this headache that is appearances. (And remember, if you find a good company, recommend them below).
