Although many property owners have a general idea that trees add value to a property, few owners understand just how valuable healthy shade trees can be on a residential or commercial property. In addition to offering an aesthetic benefit to properties, tree can provide a financial value to property owners that pay both immediate and long-term dividends. Today's blog post will look at how much trees can really be worth and what types of benefits they offer residential and commercial property owners.
Every commercial property owner wants a nice, lush lawn with beautiful trees, but many forget that an attractive and stable property begins with healthy soil. Soil is the life source for the vital nutrients and minerals lawns and trees need for robust, healthy growth throughout the seasons. When soil is no longer healthy, tree root systems and lawns begin to suffer and may likely die, costing property owners the loss of beautiful property as well as high replacement costs.
Winter can be one of the harshest seasons for the life of a tree or plant, even in Houston where our winters are relatively mild. Strong winds, heavy winter thunderstorms, and occasional icy precipitation can wreak havoc on plant and tree health, as well as property values and aesthetics. However, with a few proactive steps property owners can protect trees, plants, and even irrigation systems from damages. In today's blog post, we'll highlight three ways residential and commercial property owners can better protect their property during the winter season in Houston.
Fall weather means the arrival of cooler temperatures, the return of seasonal décor, and the falling of tree leaves all across the city. Although falling leaves can be a nuisance for residential and commercial property owners to deal with, the bare spots they leave behind can reveal many significant factors and warning signs about tree health. In today's blog post, we'll discuss the top three things to look for when tree leaves begin falling from your residential or commercial property trees.
When a tree or lawn begins to decline in health and in growth, commercial property owners often scramble to determine the cause. Some might suspect poor watering, insect infestations, or hidden damages. Although these three can lead to poor growth for lawns and trees, a common culprit often overlooked by commercial property owners is poor soil health.
Some of the most important assets of a residential or commercial property are the trees, which provide desirable shade and aesthetic value. Unfortunately, issues such as tree damage, drought, tree diseases, and soil issues can lead to the death of these valuable trees. Although no property owner ever wants to experience losing a large and majestic tree, it is far worse to leave a dead tree on a residential or commercial property for an extended period of time.
Houston's stable and growing economy has led to a rash of new construction projects and development areas, from large mixed-use office and retail spaces to new home construction. Often this construction occurs near existing homes and businesses. Although noise and traffic are the most common results from nearby construction projects, they can also cause a problem that has lasting and expensive ramifications: damage to your trees.
Because of Houston's unpredictable weather and proximity to the Gulf Coast, our city often receives massive amounts of rainfall in short periods of time, resulting in flash floods and heavy rains throughout the area. Although rainfall might recede and drain away promptly in some areas of the city, there are many commercial properties that have poor property drainage, which can jeopardize their business. In today's blog post, we'll look at four ways poor property drainage can damage commercial properties, and why it's crucial to have effective drainage.
Trees that grow in forests and other wooded areas don't require the use of fertilizers and other supplements because of their nutrient-rich soil. Over time, falling leaves and tree debris decompose naturally and create a healthy, vibrant soil environment that allows trees and tree roots thrive.
Houston is home to hundreds of athletic fields and recreational areas, located at schools, public parks, or other outdoor facilities. Families, students, and organized sports leagues use athletic fields throughout the year for baseball, football, soccer, and other outdoor sports. Because they are very popular within communities, athletic fields can take a beating from the combination of heavy foot traffic, hot temperatures, and sporadic rainfall.
