10 Ways Your Landscape Vendor Can Make Property Management Much Less Stressful

Choose the wrong landscaping company, and you might as well do all that mowing, weeding and planting yourself.

When will they show up? Will they pull those weeds they missed last time? If the owner announces a sudden visit, will the property look great — or shabby?

You don’t need that kind of stress.

Tyler Read, Greenscape Client Relations Manager, offers 10 ways a great landscaping company can ease your stress.

See? You feel calmer already.

We’re Another Set Of Eyes

“Property managers are often managing multiple properties,” Read says. “They may not be on site all the time. We often visit the site more than they do.

“We’re another pair of eyes, looking not just at the plant material and the elements of their contract, but at other things, too. Maybe there’s a water leak in their building. Maybe a car did some damage.”

We’ll let you know.  

“It’s like having a second property manager,” he says.

We Make You Look Good

We’ll do the work — you take the credit.

“When we notice potential problems on your property and report them to you, it looks like you’re the one who spotted the problem,” Read says.

Happy to help.

We Put Safety First

You have a lot to keep track of, so you might not notice potential danger spots on your property.

“We might notice there’s an area of your parking lot that’s dim — people might not feel safe walking to their cars,” Read says. “We’ll notice if the fence around your retention pond is broken. Little kids love trying to get into places they’re not supposed to be.

“We make sure your site is safe.”

We Look Out For Your Budget

“We’ll work with you to use your budget appropriately,” Read says. “We might notice that your gutters are starting to deteriorate. Maybe they don’t need fixing this year, but they’ll need it next year. Then you can set aside money for it in next year’s budget.

“Having that kind of information is huge when it comes to allocating your resources."

We Keep In Touch

You’ll always know when our crews are arriving and what services they’ll be doing. We pride ourselves on frequent, detailed communication.

When your tenants ask a question about when pesticides will be sprayed or when mulch is arriving, you won’t have to call us. You’ll already have our monthly update telling you our roadmap for the month.

“We keep you in the know,” Read says.

Owner Visiting? No Sweat

“Just call us,” Read says. “We can come over and make sure your property is in tip top shape for your owner visits. You won’t have to worry if the landscaping company has been there recently.”

You Only Have To Call One Person

You shouldn’t have to talk to four different people to get your question answered. You should only have to call one.”

We Respond In A Flash

“Our rule here is that when we get an email, we have three hours to answer it,” Read says. “Communication is always open.”

We Walk Your Site With You

Your Greenscape client relations manager walks your property every two weeks. Ideally, you’ll be right there with us. We love to have you along once a month.

“That way, you know we’re not just throwing random enhancements at you,” Read says. “It’s all about what you want to see done.

“If we see anything that needs more focus, that information goes right to our crews,” Read says.

“We tailor our services to you and your property needs. It’s a custom fit. That comes from getting to know the property manager and knowing their hot topics.”

We Know All The Rules — So You Don’t Have To

Here in the Raleigh-Durham area, there are a lot of landscaping restrictions.

Your city might require a green buffer of trees between your parking lot and the street. Cut them down, Read says, and you’ll face a big fine.Know the rules written on paper

The governing body of those shared areas surrounding corporate buildings often set landscaping themes for the season or the year.

“If they’ve decided this year’s theme for flowers is red, white and blue, and you’ve planted pink flowers, you’ll have to tear them all out and start over,” Read says.  

How to keep track of it all? Don’t worry about it — we’ve got you covered.

“That’s one of the areas where we shine,” Read says. “We know all the restrictions.”

Let Greenscape Make Your Job Easier

“We take ownership of all of our sites,” Read says. “We take pride in every aspect of our work — not just the plant installations.”

That means much less stress for you.
