As a business owner, keeping up your property is a priority. A clean, neat, attractive landscape offers many advantages, from customer and employee safety to aesthetic appeal and increased property value. A big part of that is scheduling regular commercial lawn maintenance and management to ensure your property looks its best all year long.
Here are five advantages to hiring a professional for regular commercial lawn maintenance and management projects.
1. Decrease in Overall Landscape Maintenance Expenses
By hiring someone to regularly care for your lawn, landscape, gardens and trees, you reduce inevitable landscape expenses in the future because your property remains healthy. A clean and neat landscape means you likely won’t have to pay for expensive removal and replacement in the instance of overgrown gardens, dead grass and untrimmed trees.
2. Safety for Employees, Customers and Visitors
Unstable trees, long grass, exposed tree roots and overgrown bushes can all signal a safety issue for anyone who comes onto your property. If someone gets hurt while on the job or while visiting your site, they could sue you and leave you vulnerable to an expensive lawsuit. It’s in your best interests to have your lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed and debris cleared on a regular basis to avoid these unfortunate situations.
3. More Efficient Use of Time
As a commercial property owner or manager, your time is valuable. By hiring someone else to maintain your landscape, you are freed up to focus on what’s important: growing your business, taking care of daily operational tasks, etc. Ongoing commercial landscape maintenance gives you extra time to concentrate on business priorities that make you money – which leads to peace of mind.
4. No Investment on Equipment Needed
If you tackle commercial landscape maintenance on your own, you have to spend a significant amount of money purchasingthe equipment you’ll need, from lawn mowers and weed wackers to mulch and gardening supplies. Plus, you have to train your employees and yourself on how to perform the work, taxing an already-overworked staff. Get comfort and relief in the knowledge that a major time-consuming task is being delegated to experts who provide all the equipment and tools to get the job done right.
5. Increased Curb Appeal and Property Value
A sloppy or neglected landscape detracts from the beauty and appeal of your property, as well as its value. It stands to reason, then, that sharp landscaping is a wise investment. Studies show that quality landscaping yields a big ROI, with more than one dollar for every one invested. Studies also show customers are more likely to spend money at an establishment that is attractive, well-kept and neat. And, according to the National Association of Realtors, upgrading your home or business landscape can increase overall value by up to 12 percent.
