Mature trees offer residential and commercial property owners a wide range of important benefits, but trees can also become hazardous over time if not properly maintained. Unfortunately, too many property owners fail to get hazardous trees removed in time to prevent damages or injuries.
A growing number of Houston businesses have become serious about protecting our environment, with such efforts as reducing their corporate carbon footprint and protecting natural resources. Although recycling and water conservation are popular steps among Houston businesses, another great investment in our local environment is having healthy and vibrant commercial lawns. In today's blog post, we'll look at three ways companies can make a significant positive impact on the environment by simply ensuring that they have a lush and healthy lawn throughout the year.
Commercial property owners are often looking for cost-effective ways to improve their property, and some might consider rubber mulch for their longevity and ability to retain moisture. However, there are a number of serious dangers that can come choosing rubber mulch for commercial properties.
Houston properties, whether residential or commercial, benefit from the addition of healthy trees. When planted properly and regularly maintained, trees can offer decades of bountiful shade, majestic beauty, and stable property values. However, it's crucial to pick the right type of tree for your particular commercial, industrial or residential lot. Otherwise, it could lead to higher maintenance costs and unhappy property owners.
Houston is home to hundreds of churches, temples and places of worship throughout the greater metropolitan area. For many, these houses of worship represent community, family, and love, so caring for these properties is a high priority for parishioners. Unfortunately, many Houston area churches and temples find themselves with beautiful interior areas, and poorly maintained exterior spaces.
Owning a tree comes with a myriad of benefits and long-term advantages, such as much-needed shade, beauty, privacy, cleaner air, and reduced cooling and energy costs. However, not all trees grow up to be beautiful and safe additions to a property. Unfortunately, some trees grow in such a way that nearby buildings, structures, and even people are at risk of damage or injury. In today's blog post, we'll look at three key tree dangers that commercial and residential property owners should look for in order to avoid potential damages, injuries, or major disasters.
There are some changes in a tree's appearance that might seem normal to a property owner, while other changes might be a cause for concern. One of the more common areas of concern for residential and commercial property owners is the appearance of large swaths of silken webbing throughout their tree, mainly on tree trunks, limbs and branches. Although this silken webbing is often widespread within the tree and may be found on multiple trees, it poses no danger to the tree or nearby plants or shrubs.
For commercial property owners and management companies, the ideal tenant is a stable, long-term tenant with a popular business to bring in customers on a regular basis. However, in Houston's growing economy many commercial real estate owners and management companies must aggressively compete to win over these sought-after tenants, since price is not the sole factor for many potential tenants. In today's blog post, we'll look at four ways that beautiful commercial landscaping can attract long-term tenants.
Many subdivisions and communities within the greater Houston area are maintained by HOAs, which are Homeowners Associations. HOAs help enforce deed restrictions, and also collect annual dues, which are used for general upkeep and maintenance of the common areas such as neighborhood parks, walking trails, playgrounds, pools, and trees and landscaping. However, some HOAs end up picking the lowest possible bidder for their tree and landscape maintenance, resulting in unattractive landscaping and unhappy residents.
When we need medical advice, we could consult a friend, neighbor, relative, or website, but the best and safest course of action is to seek out a trained and licensed doctor or specialist that can give proper medical advice and treatment. The same is true for trees and their care. While we could handle tree care on our own, or ask a friend, neighbor or relative for advice, the best course of action is to always have a Certified Arborist inspect and treat our trees.
