Leasing your property and making your tenants happy starts with their first impression. A well-maintained landscape can add 15-20 percent or more to its overall value. Poorly shaped trees, overgrown shrubs and weed-filled flower beds detract from a property’s overall appearance, and have a negative impact on its value as well. A small investment in keeping plants and landscape in top condition has generous financial and psychological rewards.

With that being said, it is important to make sure you are budgeting enough for standard maintenance. Class-A buildings, which are high profile, visible places, need regular, and in most cases weekly, landscape maintenance. Regardless of the property type, however, your landscape should always present a professional appearance.
