Having your commercial property landscaped gives your business a sleek, fresh look. It’s important to call in a professional on a regular basis – at least every 8-12 weeks – to handle landscape design and maintenance tasks. But are there any upkeep jobs you or your employees can handle on your own, between visits from the gardeners? Here are just a few of the things you can do to keep your property looking posh until the next time your professional landscapers drop by:
Give Your Grounds a Once-Over Regularly
When you operate on a sprawling property, it can be easy to lose track of how well things are being maintained. To ensure that nothing gets overlooked, deploy staff members or take a walk yourself at least weekly to check on the entire property. This way, you can catch any major problems before they rise to disaster levels.
It may sound obvious, but you wouldn’t believe how many property owners don’t properly maintain their non-organic structures and features. Sweep your walkways, dust off statues or structures, and maintain water quality in ponds, fountains and other water features. This will keep things feeling fresh all over your grounds.
Keep Pest Control to a Mediated Minimum
No one wants pests on their property – especially when that property is part of your business. Getting rid of spiders, mosquitos and other biting insects or pests like roaches, ants, and flies around the structures of your property makes perfect sense. But be sure that your gardeners aren’t also ridding your property of friendly critters like ladybugs, earthworms, bees, and other insects that are required for healthy plant life. Also beware of the overuse of fertilizers, as they can not only endanger birds and small mammals that may live nearby, but also pose a danger to people and pets. Never use one of these products without the guidance of your landscaping team.
Your property is a point of pride, so it’s only natural to want to keep it in pristine condition. When you and your staff aren’t up to the landscape design and maintenance tasks at hand, though, it pays to call in a professional.
