The start of a new year is often a time of reflection and action as people and companies look to make improvements and perform long-overdue maintenance. Just like people and businesses, commercial properties can also benefit from New Year improvements and maintenance. In today's LMC blog post, we look at a few ways you can help your commercial property thrive in the new year for lasting health, beauty, and strength.
As we near the end of the calendar year, many businesses and commercial property owners are reviewing and finalizing budgets for the next year. While routine landscape maintenance is a normal budget item, it may also be time to consider adding landscape improvements into next year's budget for proactive reasons.
A common challenge many businesses face is how to provide the best possible customer experience so customers will be more likely to return and bring others with them. Unfortunately, issues on your commercial property can sometimes overshadow great experiences and top-notch service. For example, if your restaurant customer raves about their meal and service, but then smacks their head in the parking lot on an overgrown tree branch, they might be less likely to return.
With the official start of spring just a couple of weeks away, commercial properties will soon display signs of growth again after a few dormant months of winter. However, not all commercial properties are ready to welcome in this new season. Properties that aren't prepared and ready for spring could experience stunted growth and poor health throughout the spring and summer months.
No matter how much we prepare and protect our home or business during hurricane season, there will always be areas of our property that remain vulnerable to damages from hurricane-force winds and heavy rainfall. For example, our trees can be severely damaged or completely uprooted because of hurricane-force winds and torrential rainfall. Tree damage can have a significant financial impact to property owners, through the loss of valuable shade, decreased property value, increased utility bills, and even damages to nearby properties and structures.
On any given day in the greater Houston area, there are hundreds of amateur, mom and pop tree crews offering cut-rate services for tree trimming and tree removal. They promise quick tree trimming for a low cost, but accepting their offer often comes at a high price for commercial property owners.
Utility services reach commercial properties through lines either above ground or planted underground. Although these services are stable and reliable, trees can interfere with utility services and cause problems for both tree health and utility service providers. In today's blog post, we'll look at how commercial property owners can avoid problems between their trees and nearby utility lines.
Commercial properties in Houston, regardless of their location, can benefit from the addition of healthy trees. When planted properly and regularly maintained, trees can offer decades of bountiful shade, majestic beauty, and stable property values. However, it's crucial to pick the right type of tree for your particular commercial, industrial or multi-use lot.
Houston is home to hundreds of churches, temples and places of worship throughout the greater metropolitan area. For many, these houses of worship represent community, family, and love, so caring for these properties is a high priority for parishioners. Unfortunately, many Houston area churches and temples find themselves with beautiful interior areas, and poorly maintained exterior spaces.
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.

In today's blog post, we'll look at four ways that beautiful commercial landscaping can attract long-term tenants.
