If you’re a commercial property owner — whether it’s a condo, office building, or shopping centre — your landscaping makes a statement. Ensuring that your property is tidy, free of debris, and your grass is freshly cut, will speak volumes about your business even before someone has walked through the door.
In this blog, we review the importance of outsourcing these important tasks. Here are our top 5 reasons to hire a professional landscaper for your commercial property:
1. Professional landscaping increases your curb appeal
There is no better way for you to exhibit professionalism as a first impression than the outdoor appearance of your company. First impressions happen well before people have had the opportunity to speak to someone or walk through the front door. If your landscaping is non-existent, or unkempt, it will set the tone for what people can expect from your company.
2. Professional landscapers can help you stay on budget
If you’re trying to handle your landscaping on your own, or you’ve outsourced it to someone that’s inexperienced, you could wind up spending a lot more money than you’d like. A professional landscaper will get things right the first time and can help you stay on budget with your landscaping maintenance.
3. Professionals have a vision & can get creative
Professional landscapers are creative and can visualize an idea for a space in a unique way. At Garden City Landscaping, we look for this skill whenever we are adding to our team, because creativity and vision are important to us. As the experts, you look to us to help plan, create, and maintain your landscape design — and it’s what we love to do!
4. You don’t have the time
If you’re a property owner, or have another full-time job — it’s unlikely that you’re going to have the time or energy to properly maintain your landscaping. If you’re feeling ambitious and think this is a task that you’re up for, you may quickly realize that your money will be spent on tools and supplies. Next, you will need to find time each week for cleaning, raking, cutting and watering grass, pulling weeds, trimming hedges, inspecting for any problems, and then fixing those issues — this may be a lot more than you bargained for. Let us take on this task for you and help prevent frustration and sore backs.
5. Professional landscapers are transparent and professional
When you agree to work with a reputable and trustworthy landscaper, they should provide you with an itemized breakdown of every task they will be completing for you and timelines for completion. In addition, you should expect to receive your invoices in a timely fashion and consistent, quality work, professionalism, and communication.
