Commercial property owners understand well the importance of having a healthy, well-maintained landscape, but managing all the needed services can be a daunting task. Too many commercial property owners and managers make the mistake of hiring different contractors for each area of the property, instead of hiring one commercial landscape services company to handle all property maintenance. In today's blog post, we'll look at the many benefits of hiring one landscape company to handle all tree and landscape projects for commercial properties.
Better Tree and Landscape Care
Professional commercial landscapers are invested in your property's immediate and long-term health. They tend to be more knowledgeable about all facets of tree and landscape care, and employ Certified Arborists and Landscape Professionals, who are experts in their field. Commercial property owners end up with healthier, more attractive lawns, trees, and landscape gardens. On the contrary, subcontractor companies are more likely to rush through projects and overlook key areas of the property that might be susceptible to disease or insect infestations.
Lower Overall Maintenance Costs
Commercial property owners can negotiate better annual pricing for services since using one primary landscape company reduces the potential for projects to be outsourced to subcontractors. Subcontractor costs are often passed down to customers through padded pricing. In addition, commercial landscape and tree care companies offer annual pricing options so property owners can budget their landscape costs throughout the year.
Safer Tree and Landscape Work
Another benefit of professional, commercial landscape and tree care companies is that they perform all services while adhering to federal and industry safety and maintenance guidelines. Professional tree care companies have the training, equipment and safety gear needed to handle tree care projects safely and efficiently, with far fewer worksite accidents or injuries. Subcontractors are often using poorly maintained equipment, older tools, and little to no personal protective equipment (PPE). In addition, they may lack full commercial insurance coverage, leaving commercial property at risk of liability for worksite accidents.
Saves Time For Property Owners
Finally, commercial property owners do not have to negotiate multiple contracts and juggle the work schedules of multiple contractors all needing to be on the property at the same time. Using one professional tree and landscape company can significantly reduce time, energy and cost requirements, freeing up commercial property owners and managers to focus on their business instead. In addition, using one commercial maintenance company means that landscape and tree care can be scheduled in advance to ensure minimal disruptions to the business, customers, employees, or vendors.
