When it comes to running a commercial premises, first impressions count. If the first thing your customers see when they visit your site is dying trees, leaves covering the ground and overlong, yellowing grass, they might not even get through the front doors. But if they saw neatly pruned trees, trimmed uniform grass and clear pathways, their first impression would be much more positive.
But keeping on top of all that yourself can be a challenge, especially if your premises is on the larger side, or you have more than one. And hiring a groundskeeper internally can be expensive. So why not consider hiring a professional grounds maintenance company to take care of it for you instead? If you’ve been on the fence, here are just 3 reasons you should bring in a professional to help.
Knowledge and Experience
A professional grounds maintenance company will bring with them a wide-ranging portfolio of work they’ve done before, which gives them unparalleled knowledge and experience in maintaining the grounds of commercial and residential properties. Every day their team will be out tending the grounds of other businesses, and they can bring that experience to you. When it comes to questions such as ‘how often do I need to prune?’ ‘Am I overwatering the plants?’ ‘how do I know when I should next mow my lawn?’ they will always be able to offer their expert advice.
One of the biggest advantages of hiring professional grounds maintenance is what it can save you. Yes, hiring someone does cost money, but it saves you a huge amount of time. A professional company will be able to tailor their service to suit your requirements and give you the most cost effective options that don’t require you spending time on it.
Let’s put it this way. Say you have a large lawn area that’s currently gone wild. You want to get it under control and maintain it so that your staff can use it as an outdoor meeting area. Are you going to be able to dedicate the time to mowing it, clearing leaves, removing weeds and treating it when needed? And even if you are, is that really the best use of your time?
Probably not. Instead, paying a professional to handle this regular grounds maintenance means you can focus on other things, including earning money. Little things like the above are exactly why you should be considering bringing in a professional service.
If there’s one thing a professional knows, it’s grounds maintenance. It’s what they do day in and day out, which makes them experts. And another of the benefits of hiring a professional is the knowledge they can bring to the table. The team are always happy to do surveys and provide our opinions, as well as give advice on things you could do differently to save you money. They can also answer any questions you might have and give practical advice to give you the most professional finish at the best value.
