Landscape maintenance is a term thrown around all the time in this industry. What does this mean? It is a very, very broad term that encompasses so many different services. Just here at Dream Greener we probably offer somewhere around 20 services that fall under that landscape maintenance umbrella, and other definitions of landscape maintenance might include just about everything we do. This is not without reason, as a maintained landscape is vastly superior to one left alone. In this blog we will discuss exactly why that is, and how beneficial a maintained landscape can be.
Peace of Mind: Reduced Stress
Living in a cluttered environment can be a struggle no matter the location. Cleaning your bedroom can be a therapeutic experience as you feel more organized and confident. The same is true about your outdoor space, which can be pretty large on some properties. As a property manager or homeowner the reduced stress of a landscape you do not have to worry about is unmatched. When you entrust the property to a landscape maintenance company, forget about that to-do list full of mowing, edging, etc. More time to work on yourself and the many other things we are sure you have going on.
Property Value: Up Only
Another benefit of landscape maintenance is found the minute you go to put a property on the market. Any real estate appraiser will find a property with a maintained landscape to be significantly more valuable than the same property with a shoddy landscape. The landscape is the outdoor space of a property, which must be considered in property value. Just like inside, the more amenities you have the higher the value of your property. In commercial real estate, this is why landscape maintenance is a must, and no homeowner wants to watch their property fall to pieces.
Maintenance Maintains Health
The most integral benefit of landscape maintenance is all the benefits seen over the long term, not the short. Dream Greener could come into just about any landscape at any time, spend a couple of days, and it could look pristine. With no maintenance, it would look the same as it did originally in a couple of months. However, landscape maintenance is a routine. It establishes patterns of health that last for many years. Fertilization efforts teach plants to search for nutrients and develop deep roots, and pruning keeps trees from taking on disease too early. These are just a few examples of the many ways in which landscape maintenance offers benefits well into the future.
Sign of Luxury
If there is one thing that landscape maintenance gets across to those visiting your property, it is that you have the ability to invest resources into creating a beautiful outdoor space. With Dream Greener, it might even look like you spent a lot more than you actually did! Neighbors will be wowed by the uniformity of your property, while also asking how you did it. Landscape maintenance takes a step beyond simple lawn care, and ensures that everything from turf to plant beds is in order.
