Pruning improves aesthetics, security, and safety.
When it comes to commercial maintenance, a lot of focus is given on mowing and weeding – but what about the trees and shrubs? It’s no surprise that property management world is cost-control driven – but that doesn’t necessarily mean that trees and shrubs need to be neglected. What you need is a pruning plan!
Trimmers Landscaping specializes in aesthetic pruning services – and not only for residential clients. Office buildings, condominiums, hotels, and restaurants benefit monetarily from mature landscape plantings. With the right pruning techniques, a well-designed landscape planting should fill in the empty spaces without looking overgrown.
Here are some of the benefits that proper pruning of trees and shrubs provides for commercial property owners:
Liability prevention – Pruning back trees and shrubs from walkways and entryways prevents liability that could result from pedestrians tripping. Proper pruning techniques prevent branch breakage due to ice and snow.
Security – Redirecting tree limbs away from security lighting provides safe passage at night. Reduction pruning on shrubs around windows and entryways discourages break-ins.
Aesthetics – There are numerous studies showing the value of a mature, well-manicured landscape bringing in additional foot traffic. Tenancy increases in leased buildings; retail and restaurants are able to charge more based on the perception of the business.
Healthy plants – Natural pruning opens up plants, providing more airflow and minimizing diseases and insect infestations, requiring fewer pesticide applications to keep them healthy.
