As a busy property manager, you have a lot on your plate. Whether you oversee one or more commercial properties, you just want to know that everything is getting done that will keep your property looking and performing its best.

A critical component of that is the commercial landscape. You might not be completely sure what commercial landscape maintenance services are the most important.

In this article, we’ll talk about some of the essential commercial landscape maintenance tasks that need to be kept up with in order to maintain your property’s value, appeal, safety, and functionality.

Essential Commercial Landscape Maintenance Services

We’ll explain why the following services are important to have completed on your commercial property. It’s not just about looks but also the function and safety of your space.

Turf Management for a Healthy Green Lawn

Your commercial turf is often one of the first things that people see when they visit your commercial site. If you have large grassy areas, you want to make sure that they are well-maintained with year-round turf management. 

This would include lawn care services like fertilization, weed control, aeration, and topdressing.

With good turf management, you can avoid having unsightly bare spots or lots of weeds growing on your turf. That’s important as depending upon what your commercial property does, your lawn might get used frequently. But at the very least, it’s a highly visible part of your property that you want to keep in good shape.

Seasonal Mulching and Color for Critical “Wow Factor”

As this is a list of “essential” services, we know that you might question why seasonal mulching and color are so critical. But we’d argue that these two services might honestly be two of the most important things that you can do. 

You simply can’t underestimate how important it is to incorporate new, colorful flowers (as the seasons change) and a fresh coat of mulch into your plant beds.

This can add a tremendous “wow factor” and curb appeal.

No matter what type of commercial property you are maintaining, you know that your patients, customers, or employees have choices about the practices, businesses, and places of employment that they choose to frequent. Something as simple as colorful flowers can make your commercial property stand out. 

It’s all about creating a welcoming feeling to your property and mulching and seasonal color play a huge role in this.

Tree and Shrub Care for Healthy Plants

The trees and shrubs on your commercial property are also critical components. This is why year-round tree and shrub care should be part of your commercial landscape maintenance plan.

You want to make sure that plants are protected against disease and pests…and that they are well-fertilized so that they continue to grow and perform their best.

When trees and shrubs become unhealthy they can become “ugly” and that can create a negative appearance in your landscape. You could also risk losing trees or shrubs if they start to decline. It’s much more expensive to replace a tree or shrub than it is to just keep up with their routine care.

This all contributes to the look of your commercial property and the impression that people get when they visit or drive by.

Keeping Up with Irrigation Management

Given the fact that water is the lifeblood of all living things, it’s also critical that you are keeping up with irrigation system management. This should include inspections, repairs (as needed), and ongoing water management.

Here in North Texas, where drought conditions are common, you could easily lose your plants or turf if proper water isn’t being provided. But you also don’t want to spend more than you have to on your property’s watering needs. An unnoticed leak wastes precious (and expensive) water.

Problems can often be avoided with ongoing routine checks and care. Tweaks to the system as needed can make a huge difference in the grand scheme of things.

Investing in Property Improvements for Continued Appeal

We’d also suggest that you consider ongoing property improvements as a matter of maintaining the value and appeal of your property. Commercial sites that fail to keep up with ongoing improvements are going to fall behind as others make that effort.

Some examples of property enhancement projects that could be part of your commercial landscape maintenance plan include:

  • Tree and shrub installation: Replacing old trees and shrubs (or adding some in places where there weren’t previously any) can make a huge difference in the appeal of your property. Trees and shrubs add lots of value and aesthetic appeal to your property.

  • Drainage work: Is your commercial turf always soggy or do you find there’s standing water in your plant beds? If so, you might have a drainage problem that needs correction. There are various drainage solutions that can be implemented to help improve your property.

  • Hardscape work: Could you use a simple walkway to move patrons across your commercial property in a smarter way? Or, do you have some hardscape repairs that need to be done to fix up your property? These types of projects can have a great ROI.

  • Rock enhancements: While people often think of flower installation as the best enhancement choice, rocks can also make a smart addition. Adding some crushed stone to a plant bed or even incorporating a decorative boulder onto your commercial property can be a zero-maintenance addition that has aesthetic appeal.

  • Low voltage lighting: If you have a practice or business that gets used in the evening hours, improved landscape lighting or bistro lighting can be a great addition. Even if you aren’t using your property at night, landscape lighting can help make it safer and reduce the risk of problems like vandalism or theft.
