Companies across the world are beginning to see the importance and impact of adopting sustainable, or environmentally friendly business practices in the workplace. As companies strive to become more "green" and promote the environment through various business initiatives, there is often one area overlooked in terms of sustainability: commercial landscapes. A sustainable commercial landscape can provide numerous ways for companies to protect the environment while also saving money and resources.
Soil is the lifeline of a property, and commercial properties are only as healthy and stable as the soil surrounding trees, plants, and grass. However, many commercial property owners may be completely unaware that their soil is unhealthy until it's too late, and their property's healthy, beauty, and value suffers. Today's blog post looks at three signs that property soil might be unhealthy, and how these can be corrected with the services of a professional landscape company.
When a commercial site is developed for office, retail, or industrial use, the commercial property itself doesn't become beautiful and healthy on its own. Commercial landscapes take a great deal of time and effort to maintain and protect as there are a number of factors that can impact them in a negative way, hurting growth and beauty. Today's blog post looks at four tips to having a healthy commercial property this year.
The arrival of spring in Houston is notorious for bringing with it severe storms, flash floods, heavy lightning, and strong winds. Although Houstonians can prepare for bad weather and protect themselves from harm, the same cannot be said about exterior parts of a commercial or residential property. Even the strongest trees on a property can fall victim to severe weather, but many types of trees can survive storm damage and avoid being removed completely.
Summers in Houston means hot temperatures, high humidity, and added stress for our commercial and residential properties. Because the severe summer weather can make it difficult for plants, grass, and trees to thrive, our properties need every bit of help they can get to survive the season and remain healthy and strong. In today's blog post, we'll examine tree pruning services, and why having this service performed now can benefit your trees in the summer.
Have you ever driven past a commercial or residential property and wondered why it looked so terrible? Or have you watched a neighbor try to trim their tree, only to end up with a butchered mess? The reality is that lots of people own commercial and residential properties, but not everyone makes good decisions when it comes to the care and health of their property. In today's blog post, we look at three common mistakes property owners make in regards to maintenance and tree care, and the right way to handle these issues.
A beautiful and vibrant commercial property attracts customers and tenants, but maintaining this throughout the year can be difficult. Houston's long periods of hot and humid weather can make it challenge to have healthy and lush lawns and landscapes, particularly during periods of drought or low rainfall. Without the right kind of care, commercial property owners may face spending more time and money having grass and plants removed and replaced because of drought or heat damage.
Houston, like most of the country, has experienced a milder winter than in years past. While this might be great for people who don't enjoy cold weather, it's not necessarily the best situation for our landscapes, lawns, or trees. They use the cooler winter months to enter their dormant season and recover from the grueling spring and summer growing periods. In today's blog post, we look at the many ways Houston's mild winter has impacted commercial and residential properties, and how LMC can help promote property health before spring arrives.
Commercial real estate is an important investment, which means that protecting commercial properties should start with proactive care and maintenance. One of the most common threats to commercial property health comes from weeds. Invasive weed growth can quickly take over a commercial property, jeopardizing the immediate and long-term health and value of the property. In today's blog post, we look at three ways to prevent weed growth on commercial properties and protect property health.
First impressions matter greatly, especially in the world of commercial property management. Commercial property managers need landscapes, trees, and lawns that reflect the professionalism and quality of their own business if they want to attract customers, leasing tenants, or even good employees.
