With the unseasonably warm temperatures in the tri-state area these past few days, you may be thinking spring! Unfortunately, the looming cold temperatures will return before we see the start of spring, but its never to early to plan! Planning for spring on your commercial property is smart.
Vive PM recommends that our clients and prospective clients think ahead when planning for their landscaping and spring maintenance in order to be ready as soon as the weather cooperates. Here’s how we recommend you approach planning for spring on your commercial property.
- Walk your property – Since there is no snow on the ground right now, this is a great time to walk your property and take account of the area. Take some time to view the property from an aesthetic view and bring a paper and pen to take notes.
- Observe Landscaping – Take note of areas of the landscaping that need to be improved, irrigation issues, and erosion or soil wash out areas. Pay particular attention to the trees and shrubs and the condition they are in.
- Identify Safety Concerns – Take note of areas of the walkways and parking lot where there is damage, cracks or potholes. Notice the line striping and designated parking areas and take note if they are faded or completely missing.
If you can manage to complete these three items, you will already be a step ahead when it comes to spring planning. With these notes, you can have a fruitful conversation with your commercial property service provider and start discussing what your property needs come spring. This is also a good way for you to have time to budget for what the cost will be since you will have a few months before having to put plans into action.
