Have you ever driven past a commercial or residential property and wondered why it looked so terrible? Or have you watched a neighbor try to trim their tree, only to end up with a butchered mess? The reality is that lots of people own commercial and residential properties, but not everyone makes good decisions when it comes to the care and health of their property. In today's blog post, we look at three common mistakes property owners make in regards to maintenance and tree care, and the right way to handle these issues.
A beautiful and vibrant commercial property attracts customers and tenants, but maintaining this throughout the year can be difficult. Houston's long periods of hot and humid weather can make it challenge to have healthy and lush lawns and landscapes, particularly during periods of drought or low rainfall. Without the right kind of care, commercial property owners may face spending more time and money having grass and plants removed and replaced because of drought or heat damage.
Houston, like most of the country, has experienced a milder winter than in years past. While this might be great for people who don't enjoy cold weather, it's not necessarily the best situation for our landscapes, lawns, or trees. They use the cooler winter months to enter their dormant season and recover from the grueling spring and summer growing periods. In today's blog post, we look at the many ways Houston's mild winter has impacted commercial and residential properties, and how LMC can help promote property health before spring arrives.
Commercial real estate is an important investment, which means that protecting commercial properties should start with proactive care and maintenance. One of the most common threats to commercial property health comes from weeds. Invasive weed growth can quickly take over a commercial property, jeopardizing the immediate and long-term health and value of the property. In today's blog post, we look at three ways to prevent weed growth on commercial properties and protect property health.
First impressions matter greatly, especially in the world of commercial property management. Commercial property managers need landscapes, trees, and lawns that reflect the professionalism and quality of their own business if they want to attract customers, leasing tenants, or even good employees.
Although Houston is experiencing a milder winter than in years past, it's finally cooler outside, and many of the trees and plants on our properties have entered a dormant growth season. During the winter months, some property owners make the assumption that because it is colder, their commercial property needs little to no property maintenance. Unfortunately, this incorrect assumption can lead to devastating results for commercial lawns, plants, and trees.
As consumers, we all know that quality matters, and quality can differ greatly between various manufacturers or service providers. These differences are clearly evident in the field of landscape maintenance and tree care. While it might seem like all landscape and tree care is the same regardless of the provider, the true test lies in the long-term beauty, health, and stability of the landscape and trees being cared for. In today's blog post, we look at three reasons for why quality matters so much in regard to landscape and tree care, and how LMC provides top-quality services.
If you're struggling to decide on the perfect gift for your friends and family this year, consider giving the gift of trees. Although it's not the most trendy or fancy gift possible, a tree can be a fantastic gift idea for families and friends who appreciate beauty and nature. In today's blog post, we'll share three reasons why you should give the gift of trees, and how LMC can help give new trees the best start possible.
One of the truths about owning a home is that general maintenance and repairs will be needed over time. For example, homeowners may face leaky sinks, clogged gutters, a broken dishwasher, and lawn and tree maintenance. While most homeowners handle some of these repairs on their own, some are simply too dangerous to be attempted by homeowners. A prime example is a tree emergency, which is when a tree has a severe break or topples over completely, either because of weather, heavy branches, or tree disease.
Athletic fields are an important part of school campuses, recreational facilities, local parks, and community or neighborhood centers. They offer both children and adults opportunities to spend time outdoors participating in healthy and fun team sports or exercising on an individual basis. However, athletic fields can quickly become an eyesore and unusable if they are not regularly maintained by Landscape Professionals.
