Falling leaves, colorful foliage, and cool crisp weather have made Fall’s arrival noticeable. While it’s a beautiful time of year it also means commercial properties will need to check seasonal maintenance off its to-do list.

It’s easy to get distracted by the great weather and beautiful colors, but if you slack off too long you’ll regret your lack of maintenance come spring and summer. Don’t let winter take a toll on your commercial property by following our fall maintenance guide.

Why Do You Need Fall Maintenance?

Your business has an image to protect and the outdoor aesthetic of your business will project a certain idea to past, present, and future clients. If your landscape is well maintained and orderly then it will convey the feeling of a well-maintained business.

1. Tree Care

If you live in an area with heavy ice, snow, or even rain and wind, you want to make sure your trees are well cared for. Neglecting them can lead to falling branches and high damage costs. Learn more about our tree care approach here.

2. Spring Planting

It may seem early, but the truth is that planting your spring bulbs months ahead is necessary to ensure you get that vibrant bloom going once warmer weather rolls back around. Planting now can help them take root before any ground freezes.

3. Water Features

If you have ponds, streams, fountains, or any water feature you must thoroughly clean and treat before winter weather comes. Removing debris and other elements can help prevent clogs, spring algae blooms, or even the attraction of pests and other critters.

4. Proactive Planning

While the area you live in may not typically get a lot of snow or ice it’s always helpful to have a contingency plan in place. If you get unexpected winter weather, don’t let your lack of planning lead to serious property damage.

Have a plan and a provider for ice and snow removal to keep your commercial property open and accessible all year long.

5. Shrub Care

While you may not think much about your property’s shrubs they do require specialized care plans. The right plan will ensure that they have sufficient nutrients to last through the winter season and remain healthy and thriving.

6. Irrigation System Plan

If your property has a sprinkler or irrigation system, you absolutely need a winter plan in place. Failing to do so can lead to expensive repairs and lots of problems come springtime. Get your system winterized so that no remaining water can freeze and cause cracks, leaks, or breakages.
