In order to keep your commercial property looking its best, you know that there are various landscaping tasks that are needed at different times of the year. A landscape is a living and ever-changing entity which means that regular upkeep and care are a “must.”

Otherwise, you could risk your commercial property looking messy and unkempt, which could bring your property value down and create a bad impression for customers or patients. 

Knowing “what to do” and “when to do it” can be complicated. But we’ve put together this commercial landscape maintenance calendar that will help. Getting on the right landscape schedule will help ensure that your property looks its best throughout the year.

Your Commercial Landscaping Calendar

We’ll walk you through some of the suggested commercial landscaping tasks that can be performed to keep your property looking great. Of course, since every property is different, exactly what you need might differ. We can create a customized plan that is right for you.

Spring Landscaping

While landscaping is a year-round endeavor here in North Texas, “Spring” is often considered the start of the landscaping season, so we’ll start our landscaping calendar here.

Springtime might mean a general clean-up of the property, including clearing any winter debris, trimming shrubs, and preparing flower beds. Here are some other important springtime tasks that need to be part of your landscape schedule.

  • Turf Care: Getting your commercial turf on a lawn care program is important. In the spring, turf care includes tasks like fertilization and weed control. In the spring, we might also perform lawn aeration ahead of the growing season. The loosened soil can help you get more out of lawn care services (like fertilization and weed control) and will help your grass grow better. But here in North Texas, we can aerate in either the spring or the fall, so we can discuss which is best for your landscaping calendar and your specific needs. We like to finish lawn aeration off with topdressing for better results.

  • Mulching and Seasonal Color: Professional mulching and seasonal color installation are two of the best ways to freshen up your commercial landscape in the spring. It adds undeniable curb appeal and wow factor.

  • Irrigation Management: The spring is a critical time to make sure that your irrigation system is in working order ahead of the hot and dry summer months. We can get your system up and running (if you shut it off for the winter) and also make any necessary repairs.

  • Tree and Shrub Care: As we mentioned, spring is also a good time to trim up your shrubs. You might also want to consider a Plant Health Care program in which we can start fertilizing your plants so that they perform their best. This also includes disease and pest management.

Summer Landscaping

Summers in North Texas are HOT! 

The weather can really take a toll on your precious landscaping. Fortunately, with ongoing care, your property can continue to look and perform well, even during the hot summer months.

Here are a few things to keep in mind for your summer landscape schedule.

  • Turf Care: Your lawn has new needs come summer. There will be new weeds popping up that need to be dealt with. Plus, you’ll also need to continue to feed your lawn with proper fertilization. There are also certain lawn pests that can be a problem during the summer months so these can be addressed as needed.

  • Plant Bed Care: If you didn’t already install seasonal color, you can still add summer flowers. Plus, you might have some new weeds popping up in your landscape beds. All of this can be addressed with plant bed care.

  • Irrigation Management: As you know, the summer is an absolutely critical time for proper irrigation. Making sure that your plant beds and turf are receiving ample water is imperative. If you are dealing with an irrigation problem, an effective (and timely) irrigation repair will be important.

  • Tree and Shrub Care: Plant fertilization and pest/disease control should continue into the summer months. The weather can be harsh for plants, but with proper care, they can continue to perform well.

Fall Landscaping

Although the weather is cooling down, your property likely has new weeds to deal with. Plus, you still want to keep everything continuing to look its best.

  • Turf Care: The fall means new weeds that will need to be addressed plus the continued need for lawn fertilization. You might also consider lawn aeration and topdressing in the fall.

  • Mulching and Seasonal Color Installation: The fall brings a whole bunch of new flower choices for your commercial plant beds. This is also a great time to freshen things up with a new coat of mulch. 

  • Irrigation Management: The fall months are still hot, and you’ll still need to make sure that your irrigation system is working properly so that your plant beds and turf perform their best.

  • New Tree and Shrub Installation: The fall is also a great time to install new trees and shrubs. Because it is not as hot, there is a lot less stress on the trees. They can establish their root system and start growing before having to deal with the stress of the spring and summer months.

  • Tree and Shrub Care: We can also continue to take care of any existing trees and shrubs on your property during the fall months.

Winter Landscaping

Commercial landscaping in North Texas doesn’t end in the winter. In fact, this can be a great time to tackle installation projects. Here are a few other considerations for the winter.

  • Irrigation Maintenance: If you are having your irrigation system winterized, we can talk about the next steps. Because we have fairly mild winters, not all property managers decide to do this. We can discuss what is best for your property.

  • Installation Projects: Although these can be done any time of the year, a lot of commercial property managers use the “slower” winter landscape season to have projects completed like landscape lighting and property rehab work. We can work to correct drainage issues and make hardscaping repairs that will enhance your property.

  • Professional Holiday Lighting: One of the best ways to bring a wow factor to your commercial property in the winter is with holiday lighting.
