When spring arrives in Houston, many homeowners and commercial property managers resume regular lawn and landscape maintenance. This will often include restarting irrigation systems that were turned off during the colder winter months. However, some property owners discover that their irrigation system or sprinkler heads no longer functioning properly, so prompt maintenance and repair is critical to ensure lawns get the water they need in the spring growing season.
Houston is currently enjoying a robust and vibrant economy, with new developments and construction projects starting each week. As a result, many commercial properties are under construction, often with healthy and mature shade trees nearby. Although many property owners now prefer to keep established trees on the property whenever possible, the sad truth is that construction projects can often lead to tree damage or tree death because of inadequate tree protection.
Starting at a very young age, people are always warned to stay away from power lines because of the dangers of electrocution, which can cause serious injury or even death. However, trees and plants will simply grow wherever they're planted, so it's up to property owners to make sure their growing trees do not interfere with power lines or utility poles. Power lines can impact tree owners in several significant ways.
Trees can be a valuable and beautiful addition to any commercial property. However, if a tree is planted in an inappropriate location, it can significantly hinder its growth, health and beauty, as well as that of the surrounding property. Before making the investment of adding trees to a commercial property, it is imperative that Certified Arborists assess the property to identify the ideal location for tree planting.
Mature trees are almost always considered an asset on commercial properties, especially in Houston where shade is beneficial in reducing energy and cooling costs.

Although trees often benefit the Houston area, there are a few instances where it becomes necessary to remove trees to preserve the long-term health and value of our property.
Commercial property owners and managers are often searching for ways to make their property more valuable, either by adding landscaping or offering amenities such as beautiful shade trees or tranquil water features.
In the busyness of everyday life, Houstonians often find themselves pulled in multiple directions in a given day, or have several things competing for their time and attention. For many business owners, the rampant cycle of demands and priorities can often result in project delays or people being ignored. For example, heavy demands for time and attention can lead to lower productivity, decreased sales, lackluster customer service, or poor maintenance of offices or commercial properties.
As we begin a New Year, many people begin making their New Year's resolutions, whether it's to start exercising, quit smoking, eat healthier meals, donate more to charity, or spend more time with their family.
