Fall is officially here and the weather is getting colder by the day on top of the days getting shorter and shorter. If you own a business or manage a commercial space, being prepared to transition your landscaping from the warm summer months to fall and finally the freezing winter is important to maintaining the health and longevity of your systems. Here is a few things you should make sure are take care of before the first frost.
1. Irrigation & Sprinkler System Winterization
Large commercial spaces with various area like large lawns, various locations with plants and flowers, and well as tree and retaining wall areas should have their sprinkler systems checked and prepared for the freezing of the winter. Be sure that each and every sprinkler head is individually checked and that the entire system is flushed out so that there is no remaining water in the pipes, tubes, or sprinklers which could expand and explode during the winter cold. Having your professional local irrigation system expert take care of this is important to be sure that the long check list is seen to thoroughly and on time.
2. Leaf Clean Up
Although we’re only just starting to see the leaves turn from green to light green, then yellows, oranges, and reds as we move through the fall season, making sure your commercial landscape is cleaned and cleared of the stock pile of leaves is important. Not only for the long terms health of the grass and lawn areas, but also as an aesthetic to your business, staff, and commitment to quality as a whole. After all, your commercial landscaping is a reflection of your business and ensuring your leaves are cleared periodically is a must.
3. Discounts and Updates
Now is one of the best times of the year to get an estimate or quote on a landscaping project that you’ve been wanting to do, but haven’t had the time. The spring and summer see commercial landscapers incredibly busy and as winter approaches they will be willing to provide better discounts and rates during the fall in comparison to the busiest times of the year. Be sure to get a free quote and consultation for anything from a new retaining wall, gates or fences, irrigation & sprinkler systems, or commercial landscaping lighting.
