Whether you oversee an HOA, are a retail property manager, or are in charge of maintenance for an office park, you’ve got many daily responsibilities and upkeep projects to juggle. If a building needs repairs, it falls on you. If a mechanical system needs servicing, you’re on call. But what about the landscaping on your commercial property? It’s the first impression of your brand for tenants, employees and customers. Are you sending the right message?
Regular commercial landscape maintenance is essential to maintain your property’s value and investment in flowers, shrubs, trees and turf. Curb appeal matters. A well-maintained commercial property attracts and retains tenants, and it boosts the morale of employees. Not to mention, a beautiful landscape provides a better customer experience.
Here’s why you should commit to regular commercial property landscape maintenance as a property manager or business owner. We’ll also explain what you should expect from a professional landscape company.
Increase Property Value with Consistent Landscape Maintenance
Property owners and managers get a measurable ROI from money spent on regular commercial landscape maintenance. Studies show that properties with attractive, well-maintained landscaping can fetch rental rates that are up to 7 percent higher. And a report from the Florida Nursery Growers and Landscape Association showed a 14-percent increase in resale value with quality landscaping, including speeding up sale time by as much as six weeks.
Set a Higher Standard – Compete with Neighboring Properties
Drive by two commercial properties — one with lush landscaping that is neat and maintained, the other with mostly asphalt and some signage. Which one is more appealing? Remember, you compete with neighboring properties for customers, tenants and renters. Not only can you charge more for rent and property leases if landscaping is maintained, but you can also keep those tenants satisfied and instill a sense of pride in where they choose to live, work and play.
Enhance Safety and Provide Peace of Mind
Overgrown shrubs and tree limbs can obstruct views, cause a trip hazard and block areas like intersections, walkways and entrances. A commercial landscape professional will ensure that people can easily and safely navigate your property. That includes identifying opportunities to improve safety with landscape lighting and keeping up with regular maintenance to prevent the landscape from becoming overgrown. Well-maintained landscaping can also discourage break-ins and theft because of better visibility.
Save Time and Money with Commercial Landscaping Services
Do you have the commercial mowing and lawn equipment and experienced crew members on staff to professionally maintain your HOA, office park or retail center? Are you trained to identify potential lawn diseases before they get out of hand or to determine what insect is harming shrubs so you can control the problem rather than replace plants? Do you have the time to consider completing this work, let alone managing the process? And even if you answer yes to these questions, is this the best use of your time and resources?
Property managers that partner with an experienced commercial landscape maintenance professional save time and money so they can focus on what’s necessary to run the property.
