Our mild Houston winter means that spring is just around the corner, but not all trees are ready for the season of growth. One of the best ways to prepare residential and commercial trees for spring is to have them strategically pruned to remove broken or damaged branches and encourage healthy, stable growth. Although spring is almost here, it's not too late to have trees pruned to give them the best chance of success this spring and summer.
Commercial and residential property owners know that in order to keep trees healthy and beautiful, they require routine tree maintenance. Unfortunately, many property owners make the mistake of hiring amateur tree crews or day laborers to handle their tree care needs. Although these types of amateur crews might seem to save property owners money by offering lower bids, the risks they pose can greatly outweigh any rewards or cost savings.
Over the last few years, there has been an increased awareness of the benefits of buying organic foods such as fruits, vegetables, meats, and other kitchen staples, as opposed to eating genetically modified or chemically treated foods. Much in the same way we can be healthier by choosing organic foods, commercial properties can become healthier and stronger with organic lawn care. Organic lawn care is simply performing lawn maintenance services such as fertilization and herbicide applications using organic materials instead of harsh chemicals.
Houston is known throughout the globe for our world-renowned hospitals, cutting-edge medical research, exceptional clinics, and some of the best treatment facilities available. However, researchers across the world are finding that effective, world-class medical treatment doesn't just include what happens inside a hospital, but what's outside as well.
Commercial property owners often look for new ways to improve their outdoor space and draw positive attention to both their business and landscape features. Landscape lighting is an effective way to add both security and elegance to a commercial property, but property owners should first understand the many options and functions available in the landscape lighting market.
Although a commercial property can offer stunning landscape gardens, lush grass, and healthy and majestic shade trees, the one area of commercial properties most overlooked are the parking lot and garage areas. Just because these sections of the commercial property do not have much space to offer landscape amenities doesn't mean they have to look bare and unappealing. In today's blog post, we'll highlight three native flowering trees that can brighten the look of parking lot islands and the greenspace bordering parking garages.
Nothing attracts customers and welcomes employees more than a stunning commercial landscape and health shade trees. However, a commercial property will only thrive and remain healthy if there is nutrient-rich topsoil to nourish grass, plants, and trees. When soil is removed from the property due to high winds or water runoff, it can leave the soil depleted and make plants, grass, and trees more vulnerable to diseases and death.
Water is a vital part of our own health, and also the health of our lawns, gardens, and trees. Although there are studies and recommendations regarding our own personal daily water consumption, there can be confusion about how much water commercial properties, gardens, and trees actually need. Some of the watering confusion stems from differences in grass, plants, tree species, as well as which region or zone your commercial property is located.
Commercial properties can offer beautiful amenities and lush landscaping, but they may also have areas of the property where trips and falls are more likely to occur. Businesses could face liability issues if their commercial property causes trips and falls for employees, customers, and visitors. In today's blog post, we'll look at three ways commercial properties can help reduce slips and falls on your commercial property, apartment complex, or industrial site.
