Many Houston business owners rely on contractors to help their business run smoothly and ensure that their company facilities are in excellent condition. Businesses depend on contractors for HVAC needs, plumbing issues, electrical repairs, and tree and landscape maintenance. However, hiring amateur tree trimmers and day laborers can cause major problems for business owners.
There are a variety of issues that can threaten the health, beauty and value of a residential or commercial property in Houston. These can include extreme heat, diseases and insects, invasive weeds, and poor watering. Another common threat to Houston property owners comes from poor property drainage during rainstorms or flash floods.
Americans enjoy the largest number of consumer options and service providers than ever before. People have a wide variety of choices in all arenas, whether they are car shopping, buying groceries, shopping at a clothing store, choosing insurance or even looking for service providers. Sometimes the abundance of choices and options can be overwhelming, so it's important to carefully examine all available options before making a decision. One area where Houston consumers have a wide variety of choices is with tree and landscape contractors.
When major projects arise on commercial or municipal properties, property owners and managers rely on outside contractors to submit Request For Proposal (RFP) bids to help them determine the best contractor to complete the task. Unfortunately, a significant percentage of property managers and owners simply choose the lowest priced bid, often with disastrous results. In today's blog post, we will look at four major problems that can occur when the lowest bid is the sole determining factor in awarding or granting a tree care or landscape contractor project.
When fall weather arrives in Houston, property owners will start to see many leaves start to drop from deciduous trees and plant growth slow significantly. Despite the slowdown in tree and plant growth, fall is actually the ideal time to have trees planted on residential and commercial properties. In today's blog post, we'll look at three reasons why property owners should consider having trees planted on their property now during our tranquil fall weather.
Trees are an important investment and beautiful addition to any residential or commercial property. Because of their value, it is important to protect their health from a young age, especially with careful and strategic tree pruning. However, many young trees can be severely over pruned, leading to a lifetime of diminished and unstable growth. In today's blog post, we'll look at how best to prune young trees in order to avoid over pruning and instead promote long-term health, beauty and stability.
When it comes to tree trimming, property owners might make the assumption that all tree trimmers are the same. The truth is that there are huge differences between basic, mom-and-pop tree workers and professional, degreed Certified Arborists. While both can technically trim trees on residential and commercial properties, only Certified Arborists can actually improve and protect the immediate and long-term health of trees.
When we are sick or feeling under the weather, we may have a variety of symptoms such as fever, chills, poor appetite, coughing or fatigue. Much in the same way our bodies can show symptoms of an illness or virus, our tress can also show symptoms of tree diseases or the impact of invasive insects. However, many property owners might not realize that their tree is showing symptoms of an underlying problem, which can lead to tree damage or tree death if not promptly identified and treated.
Trees and lawns can be deceiving for owners. Although on the outside they might appear relatively healthy and stable, in reality they can be struggling to thrive and grow, and signs might not become visible to the owner until it's too late for the owner to intervene. Property health, and in particular soil health, should be a priority for all property owners to protect the beauty, value and health of their real estate investment. One way to help promote and protect property health is through soil aeration.
Commercial retail and industrial sites benefit from a wide variety of tree care and landscaping services, including lawn maintenance, tree trimming, tree planting, and irrigation installation and maintenance. Another kind of landscape service that offers tremendous benefits to commercial sites is vegetation management services. Unfortunately, many commercial property owners are unaware of the benefits of regular vegetation management, and how they can positively impact their commercial site.
