Own A Business? How To Keep Your Landscape Maintained

If you own a business, the landscape is important. This is the first thing customers see when they come to your business, and if the landscape is beautiful, it gives a good impression. Keep reading for three tips on keeping your commercial landscape maintained properly. 

Fertilize Lawn and Flowers

To keep the lawn looking beautiful, you should make sure you fertilize it. Flowers should also be fertilized to keep them healthy and beautiful. This is especially true if you have perennial flowers planted, such as daylilies, Hostas, and salvia. These flowers come back each year, and fertilizing them will keep them strong. 

In many cases, you need to fertilize a lawn starting in the spring after the last frost. You may also need to fertilize again before fall begins. It is important that you use the right type of fertilizer. Do research on the type of grass you have so you will know. Also, flowers require different types of fertilizers at different times of the year. A landscape designer can help you with all of this. 

Install Irrigation

One thing that must be done is keeping your lawn and flowers watered. If you have a drought, your lawn will turn brown and start to die, and your flowers will also die. To prevent this from happening, you can install an irrigation system. One way to do this is to install sprinklers that spray overhead. If you do choose this, set the sprinklers to run early in the morning and ensure they do not spray on people or cars when they come to your building.

There are also irrigation systems that you install under the ground so they are hidden. One type is drip irrigation, which is often installed near flowers. It is buried so water is directed to the roots. There is a perforated pipe that water drips out of slowly. You can put mulch on the flower gardens to keep the flowers protected and help keep them watered longer. 

Take Care of Weeds

It is important that you remove weeds when you see them pop up. Weeds not only make your landscaping look bad but can also kill your flowers and lawn if the weeds become thick. The best way is to pull the weeds by hand, but you do have to ensure you get the roots as well or the weeds will keep coming back again. 

If you have a lot of weeds on your property or if they keep coming back, hire a weed control service to help you. They can determine the types of weeds you have so they know how to get rid of them. 

There are many more maintenance tips you should follow, such as mowing the lawn regularly and maintaining pathways and walkways.
