It’s that time of year again! Spring cleaning! You’re a busy commercial property owner and you don’t have the time to spend cleaning up your properties landscape. But, you understand the importance of curb appeal. You want your properties to look their best and we understand. Before you hire your landscaping crew, here are a few important steps we believe every commercial property contract should include, maximizing the look of your property for spring.
Pruning And Cut Back
Spring is the perfect time to prune and cut back perennials and perennial ornamental grasses, plants where you will have flowers grow on new wood, such as roses. The best way to ensure your plants and trees obtain the necessary sunlight and airflow to continue to grow properly is by pruning. If any of your plants have died over the winter months, now is a great time to replace them with new plantings before the heat of summer comes.
Edging creates crisp, clean lines in your landscape, keeps mulch away from walkways, and prevents turf growth into flowering beds.
Mulch is a very important part of spring cleaning. This is the time to remove leaf litter and build up of older mulch and replace with new mulch that will insulate your plants from the weather, help retain moisture for the plants during the summer months and give a finished look to any landscape. Freshly mowed lawn, crisp clean edges, and fresh mulch are a great way to spruce up your curb appeal.
Adding pre-emergent and fertilizer will give your plants and turf a healthy and weed free start to the growing season.
During the fall and winter months, your property will become littered with leaves, small twigs, branches, and other debris that should be removed in order for your lawn and landscape to look clean and promote proper airflow and light to reach your property.
Having your leaves raked up and mowed over with a mulching mower will deposit a nutrient-rich treat for your lawn. Your turf can not thrive if it is buried under leaves and twigs.
