Reasons to Plan Your Commercial Landscape Project Now
Time and Season
In our climate, most trees have lost their leaves by now. This makes it the perfect time to get a good view of the property without leafy growth obscuring your vision. Think of this as the time when you get a good “x-ray” of the property.
Are there unsightly or unsafe cracks in hardscapes? Evaluate drainage issues. Where snow piles up. Does it reduce your parking spaces? Are there areas where ice is quick to form and slow to melt? Does it create a slip and fall hazard to residents or customers?
Many safety and liability issues may be addressed with good planning, thoughtful expertise and a landscape project or two.
Take advantage of the dormant planting season and plan your project with our team today. You’ll have a reserved spot on the schedule come spring when everyone else picks up the phone!
Winter is a great time to prune trees and shrubbery. Be careful, though – no one wants to get poked in the eye! Be mindful of over pruning and creating sharp twigs or branches at various eye levels.
In many cases, this task is best left to commercial landscape professionals. They’ll bring the horticultural knowledge along with an “eye” toward liability concerns.
Here Comes the Rain Again
Stormwater and drainage management are central elements in commercial landscape design. Take the opportunity now before the combination of melted snow and ice with spring rains create problems. Water should drain away from the building and not pool in pedestrian areas.
If you have low-lying areas with pavement or walkways, they’re bound to collect water and during the winter, ice. This creates an opportunity for injuries. Pedestrians may avoid these areas, even stepping into driving areas to go around mud or ice.
This exacerbates the safety issues. Pedestrians should be kept away from driving lanes at every opportunity.
