Benefits of Taking Care of your Landscape
First impressions are everything. Have you ever pulled up to a business and it’s one of those situations where you can’t really tell if they are operating, or even open? It’s not a good look. For your business to be prosperous, a healthy landscape and exterior is important. We also believe healthy, well-maintained greenery can provide peace of mind for building owners and property managers.
One thing we recommend is pruning and mulching, as these are the keys to keeping a building’s landscape looking its best. Both landscape maintenance practices can help commercial buildings enhance the exterior of the property and maintain the health of the greenery.
Pruning is the trimming of trees, shrubs, and bushes to cut away dead or overgrown branches or stems. The process increases plant fruitfulness and growth, maintains plant shape, and controls disease and insects. Failing to prune plants on a regular basis can cause insect infestation, fungus, and disease. Additionally, the overgrowth of greenery can cause the building to appear unmaintained. It’s especially important to prune trees, as broken branches can cause damage to the building and prove dangerous to those who pass by.
Mulching is the process of applying a layer of wood chips to the soil surrounding trees, shrubs, bushes, and flowers. Mulch helps moderate soil temperature to help plants survive extreme weather. Additionally, mulch helps the soil retain a proper amount of moisture, reduces weeds, and adds nutrients to the soil.
Healthy, well-maintained greenery can provide peace of mind for building owners and property managers. Today, I mentioned just a few things- pruning and mulching, but we offer a full line of landscape maintenance services, including assistance with budgeting and planning, to help every building look its best.
