A well-kept landscape not only looks good, but it creates conformity, adds property value, and encourages homebuyers. If you’re part of a homeowner’s association board, you’ll want to consider hiring a professional landscaping company to provide your maintenance services. They’ll provide consistency and help cut down costs. Below are some more benefits of hiring a professional for your HOA landscape maintenance.
Professional landscapers don’t just cut lawns and prune shrubs. They are highly knowledgeable about all things related to landscaping. They know all about plants and trees native to your region including when they bloom, how much water they need, and where to plant them. Think about the cost it would add if a poorly chosen tree was planted near your hardscape and it uprooted a pathway or water feature.
When you partner with a landscaping firm for your HOA properties, you no longer have to worry about when the grass will be cut or the trees pruned. Landscapers will work with you and develop a schedule, taking added stress off of you.
Bulk Cost Savings
Landscaping contractors purchase supplies and plants at discounted rates, helping lower costs for your HOA.
Improved Landscape Management
Some plants, despite your best efforts, may die. If a plant, tree or shrub needs to be replaced your landscape contractor will purchase new plants at a discounted cost and replace it, often with a guarantee in place.
No Equipment to Worry About
You don’t have to purchase landscaping equipment like commercial mowers, loppers, and edgers. And you don’t have to store or maintain them.
Landscape companies are insured and understand all environmental and safety regulations set in place. This helps reduce any liabilities on the board’s behalf.
Other perks: Irrigation, fertilization, weed control, Pest Management
Some landscape companies, like Grasshoppers are full-service. In addition to lawn and plant care, they also handle your irrigation, fertilize your lawn, provide weed control, and even provide pest control on your properties.
If you’re in charge of an HOA, you have a lot on your plate, with landscape maintenance being one of the top priorities. When you work with a landscape company, you can focus on what you do best and provide residents with a great living experience.
