Think about the overall image of the property itself. What does it convey to your customers, employees, tenants or fellow homeowners? At the moment someone approaches your property, from the curb to the front door, they are forming their first impression.
What they are seeing or not seeing will enhance or detract from their perception of what it’s like to live, work or do business with you. What does the entrance way look like? Is there seasonal color in the form of annuals and perennials? Are the tree branches pruned away from walkways and front doors? Are leaves and debris cleaned up? How about the common areas? Is the turf weed free? Is the landscape crew just cutting the grass, or does it have a manicured look and even cut? Are shrubs trimmed and landscape beds well defined? Do all these areas add or detract from the value of your property?
With a well thought out landscape maintenance program in place, you are on your way to making that first impression of your property.
