Owning and managing a business, apartment complex, or medical office is no easy task. No matter what type of business you have, there are always so many things to do, and at times it can feel like that list will never stop growing. Fortunately, you can scratch off “lawn care” when you trust PPM Landscape Contractors Inc. to care for the grounds of your commercial property.
What To Expect When You Hire Commercial Landscaping Services
“Mulch” is a broad term that encompasses both organic or inorganic materials. These materials enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property, and organic materials can also help boost the health of garden beds, trees, and shrubs. Such materials could be straw, wood chips, pebbles, recycled tires, or shredded bark. There are pros and cons to each type, and your lawn care technician will go over them with you when they visit.
Why This Matters
Mulch not only gives your property a more tidy appearance, but it can also save you money. Organic mulch is great at trapping moisture, which means you won’t need to water as much. And it will eventually break down over time, which returns much-needed nutrients to the soil. Inorganic mulch, like stones, won’t break down, but they can help suppress the growth of weeds.
Weed Removal And Bed Maintenance
Weeds are great at adapting and spreading, and once they establish themselves in lawns or flower beds, they can be a major pain. We perform periodic bed maintenance check-ups to eradicate seasonal broadleaf weeds. And we’ll make sure your flowers and ornamental trees or shrubs are doing well. If not, we’ll make sure they bounce back!
Why Bed Maintenance Matters
Weeds can choke out the plants we want to keep – like flowers. They also decrease the curb appeal if they become prolific. Believe it or not, landscaping plays a major role in how people perceive your business. In the real estate sector, landscaping can influence home prices by as much as 14%! Also, damaged plants are more likely to attract pests and diseases. As the old saying goes: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Trimming And Pruning
Though these phrases are often used interchangeably, they actually refer to different methods of tree care. Trimming is removing overgrowth; pruning refers to the removal of dead, dying, or infected limbs. Our experts will assess your trees and shrubs at each visit and determine if and when to trim or prune.
Why Trimming And Pruning Matter
As mentioned earlier, the healthier a plant, the less likely it is to attract pests and diseases. So by proactively pruning dying branches, we can keep the overall health of the tree strong. Also, if you have larger trees on your property, dead or dying branches could pose a risk to people, vehicles, or other property. It’s better to remove problem branches before they fall. In addition, trimming and pruning requires the eyes of a trained arborist. If you trim or prune at the wrong time or in the wrong way, you can damage the plant, kill it, or create tree cankers.
If you still have fall leaves that were never raked up, or broken branches and twigs laying around, our technicians will do a spring cleaning – for the landscaping!
Why Spring Clean-Ups Matter
When an organic matter like grass clippings, leaves, branches, twigs, petals, or vines have died off and are left to decay, they can create a haven for fungus, mold, mildew, root rot, and bugs. If your landscaping has freshly planted flowers or young trees, they are more susceptible to these diseases. And all that decaying plant matter doesn’t look appealing! We’ll also clean up your property in the fall to make sure it’s tidied up before winter. That way, dead organic matter isn’t trapped beneath a layer of snow.
Whether you have a list of preferred flowers or aren’t sure where to start, we can help! Our lawn care technicians will help you pick out flowers and plant and fertilize them for you!
Why Proper Flower Installation Matters
Some flowers may not be suited to your property due to soil conditions, shade, or other factors. We want you to take pride in your flowers – not be disappointed. We’ll make sure the flowers will thrive and add beauty to your commercial property.
