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.
For commercial property owners and management companies, the ideal tenant is a stable, long-term tenant with a popular business to bring in customers on a regular basis. However, in Houston's growing economy many commercial real estate owners and management companies must aggressively compete to win over these sought-after tenants, since price is not the sole factor for many potential tenants. In today's blog post, we'll look at four ways that beautiful commercial landscaping can attract long-term tenants.
If your commercial property needs soil or mulch, do you know what kind you should buy? Do you feel overwhelmed at the many types of soil and mulch available on the market? The honest truth is that there isn't one single type of soil or mulch that works for all properties. It's important for property owners to understand that the variances in soils and mulches can make a huge impact on the health and beauty of your property.
This time of the year, many Houston commercial property owners are busy finalizing budgets and developing business strategies for the coming year. One area that is important not to overlook is in regards to commercial landscape improvements. Simple but strategic changes can dramatically alter and improve the look, value and health of a commercial property. In today's blog post, we'll focus on three commercial landscape improvements to consider for 2015.
Property owners take many precautions to keep their homes and businesses safe, such as installing alarm systems, purchasing fire extinguishers, and developing safety strategies in case of emergencies. However, property owners can increase the security of themselves and their property by having professional landscaping and tree care maintenance on a regular basis. A professional tree and landscape service company will ensure that your lawn, trees and garden remain beautiful and in optimal health.
For commercial property owners, maintaining a beautiful lawn can often be a grueling process, especially with Houston's hot summers and high humidity. One of the most difficult parts of keeping a property green and healthy is maintaining a proper watering schedule. Houston's lawns, gardens and trees require regular watering to stay healthy, grow and gain vital nutrients to endure the hot temperatures. The simple solution to keeping properties healthy and watered is the installation of an automated irrigation system.
In addition to high temperatures and sweltering humidity, Houstonians also have to contend with mosquitos and other invasive insects during the summer. However, there are proactive steps commercial property owners can take to reduce the presence of mosquitos and other insects through the Houston summer months. Property owners and their customers, guests and vendors can enjoy their exterior spaces without being subjected to painful bites and stings from invasive pests.
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.
In Houston's growing economy, businesses are always looking for innovative new ways to attract and retain customers or tenants. Over the last decade, Houston has seen extensive development both in residential communities as well as apartment construction. As a result, existing apartment complexes have been hit with a large influx of competition, meaning they have to strive even harder to attract new renters and retain current tenants.
