After a long and frigidly cold winter for most of the nation, spring has finally sprung – which means summer is just around the corner! Warmer weather and longer days means that more people will be out and about. Impress your customers (both current and potential) by getting your landscape in order!
Here are some helpful tips to get your commercial landscape ready for the summer season.
Helpful Tips to Get Your Commercial Landscape Ready for Summer
Have the Irrigation Systems Checked
Now is the time to have your irrigation system checked. If it isn’t working properly, your customers are going to be greeted by a dried out, brown, and dead landscape – not exactly the impression you want to make.
Have your irrigation system checked to ensure that it is running properly. Doing so will help keep your landscape lush, green, and beautiful all summer long.
Clean It Up
Get out there and clean up any renegade leaves that have collected on your lawn or in your flowerbeds during the fall and winter. Pull out any weeds that are starting to surface in your flowerbeds. Mulch your flowerbeds, too! It’s amazing what an incredible impact a freshly mulched landscape can make!
Everyone loves the warmth of summer – including pests. The last thing your customers want is to contend with a swarm of angry bees or see an army of ants crawling on your walls. Invest in pest control to make sure that your landscape is free of insects, rodents, and other pests that could negatively impact your landscape – and your business.
Fertilize the Lawn
Encourage the healthy growth of your lawn by fertilizing it. Have fertilizer applies throughout your lawn so that your grass is well nourished and ready to grow thick, green, and super lush. Fertilizing can also prevent the growth of crab crass, dandelions, and other types of weeds that can detract from the look of your lawn.
Hire a Professional Landscaper
As a business owner, you have a lot on your plate. There’s no doubt that you have very little time to tend to your landscaping yourself. Make sure everything looks neat and tidy by hiring a professional to tend to your landscape for you.
A professional can take care of all of the cleanup, the mulching, the planting, the pruning, the fertilizing, the mowing, and all other routine maintenance that your landscape needs to look great all summer long!
