Professional landscaping is responsible for more than just keeping your property looking great and attracting guests, it should also be keeping them safe.
Many property owners and managers understand the big role landscaping plays in risk management. Improperly maintained landscapes creates serious safety hazards on entry points, walkways, and parking lots. The last thing you want is a liability issue.
Keep Paths and Walkways Clear
Placing shrubs and plants along walkways are very effective way to direct guest and pedestrian traffic. A clear path is important for visitors to identify the way best way to go.
Which means the path needs to be clear of any uneven walkways, tripping hazards, potholes, broken irrigation heads, overgrown plants, low hanging trees, or thorn bearing shrubs.
A safe, clear line of sight, means a safe and effective walkway.
Damaged Trees and Shrubs
It was a long, hot summer here in Central Florida! Damaged shrubs and tree trunk, roots, and branches can easily become a safety hazard. Waiting until it becomes a bigger issue or even worse, someone gets hurts, can end up causing a huge headache.
Reduce energy cost while promoting safety
Properly placed plants and trees can add up to big savings. Trees can reduce heat gain into a building by up to 80%, depending on the location and tree. Plants and trees have an amazing cooling effect on the ambient air called evapotranspiration, acting like a natural air conditioner.
