Gearing Up for Spring: How to Stay Ahead of the Competition

Spring is a great time of year regardless of where you live in the United States. The grass is beginning to grow, plants are vibrant, the weather all around starts to get a little warmer, and more people are searching for new apartments to live in. When it comes to landscaping, the sooner you are ready for spring, the better.

There are a lot of commercial landscaping companies to partner with next spring, but waiting to decide which one to choose could end up costing you more. You want to make sure that your plan includes everything your landscape needs at a price that works for you. Here at U.S. Lawns, we will sit down with you in the fall or winter to help you assess exactly what services your commercial landscape needs so that your property will outshine the competition next spring. Here is how you can get your green ready for spring so that your apartment community can outshine the competition for prospective tenants.

Put Landscaping as a Top Priority

A good-looking landscape can generate a lot of profit. Tenants notice the grounds of an apartment community first, as they are driving into the community, so having an eye-catching landscape can go a long way. If you have well-manicured grounds, it can say a lot about your values as a community. Prospective tenants notice the details around areas like the pools, parks, sidewalks, and common areas. These are areas where people hang out and enjoy their surroundings, determining that this is the place they want to live.

In addition, the first place prospective tenants truly see up close is the leasing office. This means that potted plants, ornamental trees, and shrubs add the little details that could sway tenants in the right direction. Details are important to apartment communities because prospective and current tenants alike want to know that the apartment community cares about them. This could include entryways being clear of leaves and overgrowth, flowers that match the apartment’s image, and an irrigation system that waters everything efficiently and evenly and at the right times.

Landscaping should be a top priority for your spring budget next year because many people are changing apartments in May or June. This means that the landscape could lead to the final decision for current tenants to continue renting or new tenants to sign a lease. In order to maximize your landscape’s potential to do this, you need to have a plan and a budget ready to go. The landscaping professionals at U.S. Lawns can help you create a reasonably priced plan to get the services you need for your property.

Create a Budget that Includes All Landscaping Costs

In order to get the most out of your landscape, it is important to assess the apartment community’s needs. There are a lot of commercial landscaping companies out there, but finding one that will sit down with you months before to establish the most cost-effective plan can make a huge difference. U.S. Lawns goes the extra mile in terms of sitting down with property managers and getting a budget ready in the fall. A plan could include fertilizer, pest control, and weed management with pre/post-emergent services. We can also help get irrigation running efficiently, or get it ready for spring if you needed to winterize it in the colder areas.
