Creative Ideas for Your Mature Landscape

Most people think about bringing in a Landscape Designer when they have a new construction project, or when they’re getting ready to do a major overhaul of their landscape, like removing large areas of turf, trees and plants and starting from scratch.  For any new construction project or major overhaul, the services of a qualified and experienced Landscape Designer are absolutely essential. 

However, it’s far more common and just as important for our Landscape Designers to work with our existing Landscape Maintenance clients, creating plans to rejuvenate and revive landscapes as they become more established and mature.

Hiring a Landscape Contractor

If you’re a commercial property manager searching for a new vendor, whether it be a landscape contractor or any other service provider, the goal is to find someone you can trust and then “hire” them. 

But is the process of choosing a contractor really the same as the process you’d use for “hiring” a new employee at your company?  

Here are a few good reasons to approach your next vendor search the same way you’d search for your next employee:

When Residents Get Bored at the Community Pool

In this post, we'll take a look at some of the most innovative outdoor amenity spaces that today’s communities are offering their residents.

Over the past ten years the community pool and clubhouse has become a common feature for new HOAs and master planned communities.  Pools are great for the summer, but what do you do with them during the school year?  They require a lot of upkeep and they’re often underutilized by residents.  

Many of our clients are property managers and board members at communities who want to offer something unique to their current and future residents.

A Full-Service Commercial Landscaping Company

Whether you need a landscape designed for a new property or are updating an old one, Yellowstone Landscape offers professional landscape services for many different types of commercial properties. We provide a wide range of services that will help make your property's landscape look both professional and inviting. From designing your property's landscape to installing it to caring for it, our company will make sure your landscape is healthy and looks its best.

Landscape Designs

We employ well-trained professionals for every department in our company, including our landscape designers. They can offer suggestions for designing the grounds on your new properties, or for updating the plant beds at your existing buildings. The designs they create can integrate various types of trees, plants and grassy areas to add value to your properties and give them a professional appearance.

Irrigation and Landscape Installations

You don't need to contact any other companies to install a water irrigation system for the landscape. Our commercial landscaping company has the watering solutions needed to provide the moisture the grass and plants need to survive. We also offer accessories that will help reduce water waste, including rain sensors, smart controllers and irrigation methods that control water usage.

After the irrigation system has been installed, we will plant the trees, plants and grasses that will enhance the appearance of your properties. We also strive to use the right types of materials that will remain healthy in the environment in which they are planted. We try to use as many native plants, trees and grasses as possible because they will grow better and be healthier then plant materials from other areas.

We can also add drought-tolerant plants and trees that require less water to remain healthy. Along with water conservation, we also offer alternatives to using chemically based products to maintain your lawns. Yellowstone Landscape is committed to using environmentally safe techniques to help your landscapes thrive, as well as control both weeds and insects.

Full Service Maintenance

Along with landscape design and installation services, our commercial landscaping company offers the maintenance services needed to have a healthy-looking landscape. This includes mowing and fertilizing the grass, trimming the trees and preventing weeds and insects from overtaking your landscape. We employ certified experts that know the best techniques for keeping the trees, plants and grasses we install healthy.

When you contract with our company, you will be assigned an account manager who will keep you informed about our maintenance schedules and work with you to provide the services you want and need for your properties. It doesn't matter if your property is brand new or needs a facelift, we have the services that will help create beautiful, healthy landscapes.

Landscapes Promote Healthy Living and Create Community Pride

It’s not surprising that attractive, well-kept community landscapes encourage more outdoor, physical activity among residents. Many residential communities offer walking trails and open green areas for residents and visitors to experience more of the great outdoors. In turn, more physical activity leads to an overall healthier and happier population in communities with professionally maintained landscapes.

High quality, professionally maintained grounds also create a sense of pride in community, which in turn encourages greater community involvement. When they see attractive green spaces, residents are proud of their community and want to share that pride with others. They also become fiercely protective of it. It’s not uncommon to see declines in graffiti and property defacement when there is a commitment to keeping landscaped spaces attractively and professionally maintained.

Want to promote healthy living and create pride in your community? Your landscaping is the perfect place to start.

How much is your landscape worth?

It’s not a simple question to answer.

There’s no resource to help place a dollar value on a landscape.  There's no Kelley Blue Book of landscaping for property owners and managers to consult.

Safety Spotlight #2

In our next installment of our Safety Spotlight, we recognize Eldrin from our Charleston landscape installation branch for his safety efforts.

Eldrin is working along a roadway in Goose Creek, prepping for a sod installation. He's using several cones and his Transition Area Warning Device to create a safe work zone for himself, and was also wearing all of his required PPE. 

Nicely done, Eldrin!  Thank you for putting your safety training into practice.

We look forward to seeing who ends up in our next Safety Spotlight post.

We Offer Commercial Landscaping Maintenance for Business Properties

How well a hotel or apartment complex is landscaped can help make it inviting to guests or the residents who live there. It can also show how much you value your properties when the grass is kept trimmed and the plants are tended to on a regular basis. At Yellowstone Landscape, we have the experience your business needs to help care for the lawns on your properties so they make a great first impression.

What We Do

We offer a variety of services as part of our commercial landscaping maintenance plans. Not only will the lawn always look its best, but we can also make sure the irrigation system is always ready for use. Along with mowing the grass, our landscape professionals will also fertilize the lawn and keep it weed free. We can also keep insects from destroying the appearance of your lawn and plants.

You will always be kept apprised of what we have planned for the landscape on your properties. You will be contacted by the manager assigned to your account. He or she will also discuss the maintenance schedule with you, so you know when to expect our company to be at your properties. Our schedules are flexible, so if what we have planned doesn't work for you, we can always change the days or times we arrive to care for your properties.

Environmentally Conscious Care

Although many commercial landscaping maintenance companies only offer chemical solutions to keep properties looking great, we offer organic options if you don't want chemicals on your lawns. Along with organic fertilizers, we also offer organic solutions for controlling insects and diseases and for keeping weeds under control. To help keep pests away, we use biological, mechanical and cultural methods as alternatives to chemical solutions.

We are also concerned about controlling water usage, and we can add drought-resistant plants and trees to your landscapes. Yellowstone Landscape also offers different irrigation solutions to avoid wasting water, such as rain sensors, drip irrigation and smart controllers. These options will help conserve fresh water and reduce your properties' water bills as well.

Tree Care Too

We are not only concerned with caring for your grass. We provide care for the trees on your properties as well. As part of our landscape services, we will feed your trees, plants and grass so they thrive, and your trees will be pruned to insure they are healthy and look beautiful. We have certified arborists on staff and we use the industry's best practices in our commercial landscaping maintenance services.

If your hotels or apartment complexes need expert landscaping, Yellowstone Landscape has the professional staff and services you need to keep your lawns, trees and plants looking beautiful.

Safety Works! Program Launches

Safety is the most important measure of success for our company.  Commercial landscaping is a dangerous business, so keeping our crews, our clients, and their property safe requires constant focus.

We recently launched our internal ‘Safety Works!’ program, designed to encourage our Landscape Professionals to work safely in the field. In return for putting their safety knowledge into safety practice, they have the chance to earn an extra incentive when they’re caught in the act - of safety.

It’s been a very successful program so far, and it’s easy to participate.  We ask our staff to send in photos from the field, telling us who’s in the photo, where they are, and what they’re doing safely.  We collect and share the photos and details with our whole company, recognizing our Landscape Professionals who are working safely across the company and reminding us all to work safely.

We hope you’ll enjoy seeing our Landscape Professionals in our upcoming Safety Spotlight features.

 

We start with a photo of Anthony from our Charleston Install branch.  Working beside a small residential roadway, in a construction area, with no vehicle to protect him, he’s using his traffic control devices to create a safe work zone for himself. Thank you, Anthony, for setting a great example in our first Safety Spotlight!
