There are a lot of property owners who take on a big spring-cleaning project, but fail to maintain the beautiful landscape for the remainder of the year. If you want your property to stand out among the rest, you should ensure your landscape is carefully maintained all year long. Consider these three tips for maintaining your commercial landscape no matter the time of year.
Maintain the Hardscaped Features
The aspects included in hardscaping are walkways, patios, water features, rock walls, drainage, curbs, and more. Your hardscape is something that doesn’t die and revive with the seasons, making it a great way to keep your landscape beautiful at all times of the year. Some ways to keep it maintained include:
- Draining the water features before the weather gets too cold and freezes it.
- Ensuring there are no gaps in your rock or other types of retaining walls.
- Keeping your pathways clean and clear of debris, snow, and anything else that could pose a risk.
- Cleaning out drains and keeping gutters clean.
Mulch gives your landscape that finishing touch, while also providing some very convenient services. Weeds are suppressed by mulch; erosion is reduced and moisture is maintained when mulch is placed around flower beds and in other landscaped areas. Not only is it beautiful during good weather, but it also stands up to harsh weather conditions as well.
Care for Your Plants
Whether you’re planting new shrubs and other plants or just need to keep your current plants maintained, plant care is essential to your landscape looking nice all year. You’ll probably need to have some pruning and clipping done, as well as removal of dead branches or diseased plants. Fertilizer, grub control, herbicides, and other applications should be handled in the right season as well.
