In Houston, it's common for residential and commercial property owners to rely on landscapers to maintain their lawn and gardens throughout the year. However, some property owners make the mistake of allowing their amateur landscape crews to perform tree maintenance such as tree pruning and tree removal. In today's blog post, we'll look at three reasons why landscape crews should never be allowed to perform tree maintenance on residential or commercial properties.
Homeowners Associations, commonly known as HOAs, are the governing body of a neighborhood, community or complex, and are tasked with making and enforcing neighborhood rules and deed restrictions. In addition, HOAs are also responsible for ensuring that the neighborhood landscaping, common green space, and surrounding trees are maintained. Unfortunately, some Houston area HOA's make poor decisions regarding the landscape and tree maintenance of their community, damaging curb appeal and threatening property values.
Commercial property managers and property owners always want their land to look its best, both to ensure beauty and health, and also to protect financial investments. Choosing the right commercial landscape service provider is a crucial step since landscaping is one of the main focal points of a commercial property, and landscaping maintenance costs can represent a large portion of a property maintenance budget.
Throughout Houston, construction projects of all shapes and sizes are currently underway, whether it's new construction, renovations, or even demolition of existing structures. Many of these constructions projects include keeping existing large trees on the property to enhance shade and beauty. Builders and construction project managers have to account for electrical, utility, traffic and building safety needs, but often neglect to properly protect the mature trees on the property.
Owning commercial property comes with a variety of risks and rewards. As a result, commercial property owners are often looking for ways to protect their investment and ensure that their commercial property stays beautiful and valuable to minimize risk. Commercial Landscaping Management through LMC is a smart investment in the immediate and long-term future for commercial property owners.
Trees are beautiful and important property assets, but unfortunately they can succumb to various ailments, such as disease, drought, wind damage or lightning strikes. When trees become severely damaged or die, prompt tree removal is needed. Too often, property owners just have the main part of the tree removed, leaving behind the tree stump. In today's blog post, we're going to discuss why property owners should always have tree stumps removed from a residential or commercial property.
The Houston area is home to a wide variety of trees due to our warm and humid climate. One variety commonly seen in Houston is the palm tree, which can grow to incredible heights, and offers tropical beauty to property owners. Although palm trees are not as high maintenance as other tree species, they still benefit from regular tree maintenance. To keep palm trees on your residential or commercial property healthy and beautiful, it is critical to ensure experienced tree professionals regularly maintain them.
Property owners often have a wish list of improvements they would like to complete, such as planting new trees, installing an irrigation system, adding ornamental stonework, or removing older trees in poor health. Some decide to hire professional tree and landscape companies to handle these projects, while others take the risk of hiring day laborers for their home or business improvement projects.
Tree removal from a residential or commercial property can have a major impact on the aesthetic, environmental and economic value of the land. Whether the tree removal is by choice, or due to natural causes, it can leave a void in the landscape that reduces overall appeal and transforms the future of the property. Rather than leave an unattractive, empty space on the property, owners can makeover their residential or commercial property after a tree removal to protect financial values as well as improving the look and health of the property.
