As we near the end of the calendar year, many businesses and commercial property owners are reviewing and finalizing budgets for the next year. While routine landscape maintenance is a normal budget item, it may also be time to consider adding landscape improvements into next year's budget for proactive reasons.
As the holiday season approaches, commercial properties will likely see an uptick in customers and guests, which can be great for business and revenue. However, it's essential that your property be as safe as it is welcoming to customers.

In today's LMC blog post, we look at a few ways you can have a safer commercial property this holiday season.

Now that we are (slowly) saying goodbye to the brutal summer weather, this is the time when growth slows down on commercial properties and trees and landscape properties can get a chance to recover. The big question is how much and what kind of care does a commercial property need in the fall? While commercial trees and landscapes might not need the constant maintenance and care as in the summer months, there are still several important areas to monitor and services to perform in order to promote good property health through the fall.
Becoming a homeowner means having a whole new set of responsibilities regarding maintenance and repairs on a home or property. While some projects are fine for homeowners to handle on their own, such as painting or cleaning gutters, other projects are best left to professionals to handle for safety and accuracy issues.

A common challenge many businesses face is how to provide the best possible customer experience so customers will be more likely to return and bring others with them.

Managing an apartment complex or multi-family residential property can come with a unique set of challenges, as managers must deal with both constant property maintenance and tenant needs. High tenant turnover can complicate it even further as the search and screening process for new renters can be tedious, so it's important for many property managers to keep their current tenants happy. When tenants are offered stunning landscaping and fun outdoor amenities, they are far more likely to renew their lease, recommend the complex to others, and help increase the demand for available units.

In today's LMC post, we discuss some tree risk factors that should be investigated and dealt with before they cause harm to nearby people and property, and how LMC can help.
