The start of a new year is a popular time to make resolutions and goals, whether on an individual level or for a business. Many of these goals are centered on making improvements in certain areas, whether it’s healthier living, cutting expenses, or earning more revenue. Commercial properties can also undergo improvements that offers aesthetic as well as financial rewards. In today’s LMC blog post, we look at three improvements that can be made on commercial sites to increase the look, health, and value of the property.
Many businesses learned with Hurricane Harvey that property drainage could be the deciding factor in whether or not a business experiences flooding and property damage when heavy rainfall hits our area. While Harvey brought unprecedented levels of rain to our region, some commercial properties were able to quickly drain away the water while others had floodwater quickly accumulate with no place to go. Property drainage improvements can be made now to ensure spring and summer rains do not lead to flooding and property damage.
Irrigation Systems Upgrades
Although many businesses have irrigation sprinkler systems installed on their commercial sites, many are outdated and do not provide the technology and wide functionality that newer systems provide. Upgrading to a newer irrigation system can provide greater control over property maintenance since smart sprinkler systems can target specific areas and monitor moisture levels to make sure properties are getting the proper amounts of water. These smart sprinkler systems can save money and ensure lawns, trees, and plants are healthy throughout the year.
Finally, commercial properties can be significantly improved by the addition of trees throughout the site, planted in strategic locations. In addition to the aesthetic value they provide, healthy trees can offer much-needed shade and also aid with water absorption and soil runoff. Planted in the right location, trees can give commercial property owners years of value and benefits.
Making improvements to commercial properties early in the year ensures that property additions and upgrades benefit the property as much as possible.
