What to Include in your Full-Service Landscape Contract
In some of our previous blogs we have discussed the benefits of a full service commercial landscaping company to service your property. The advantages of experience and reliability, along with the ability to keep all of your landscaping with one vendor are tremendous. However, many property managers and property owners alike struggle to know exactly what services their property needs. Varying by season, and dependent on the plant material being maintained in your landscape, it can get very confusing. While any good landscaping company should be able to observe your property and identify your needs, we wanted to help you be better prepared. Here is a general overview of what to include in your full-service landscape contract.
Right after the harsh Chicago winter, your landscape is going to need some touching up. Dethatching grass, pruning perennials, and cleaning up debris will be a necessity to give you the clean slate you need. Heading into summer, your property needs to look its best, so allowing yourself the freedom to take on intensive services with a clean property will benefit you greatly. This reset will give your landscape the head start it needs, and needs to be a part of your commercial landscape contract.
As the staple of any landscaping company’s services, you are going to want to have general lawn maintenance performed. Mowing, trimming, and weeding are going to be essential to the health of your lawn come summer. You can also include fertilization, pest management and shrub pruning to make sure your landscape is in perfect condition. These services will ensure that your lawn is getting its proper nutrients and avoiding potential pests and disease that can cause decay or even death. Whether your lawn is large or small, Pezza’s experienced technicians are more than ready to take it on.
One of the easiest and most important ways to take care of your landscape is to make sure that mulch is applied. Mulch provides a variety of benefits to your plant material, maintaining proper moisture levels in your soil, as well as protecting from weed growth. Organic mulch also naturally provides extra nutrients to your soil as it breaks down. Make sure you mulch your shrubs and trees and they will show their appreciation with healthy growth.
This is a must in the cold Chicago weather, especially if your property possesses large parking lots or walkways. You need a responsive, emergency team ready to clear your property in case of a snow storm. Not only will this make for a safer property and decrease your liability, but your visitors will see just how well managed you are, keeping your property plowed.
Flower Installation and Rotation
Last but not least you should definitely think about adding and maintaining some color in your full-service landscape contract. Adding professionally recommended plant material can add some spice to your property, and it can be easily maintained within the same contract. Take away all the DIY and leave the flowers to the pros.
