WHEN CHOOSING WHO WILL TAKE CARE OF YOUR LANDSCAPE MAINTENANCE NEEDS, THE FIRST THING YOU SHOULD DO IS SEEK OUT A REPUTABLE COMPANY.
A reputable company is one that has reliable references, and one that has a satisfied customer base. If you notice a certain company taking care of the landscape surrounding a house in your neighborhood, go ask your neighbor about the company. That will allow you to find out from someone you are acquainted with whether or not the service is a good one.
Landscape Maintenance Santa Barbara uses a management program to schedule pruning, fertilization, irrigation and other landscaping services for the homeowner after our initial walkthrough. This calendar is used to create route sheets for our foremen. Our system ensures your plants receive the nourishment, pruning, and weeding they need to thrive.
Unpredictable weather is one of the biggest reasons why landscape maintenance simply doesn’t cut it. If a summer drought sets in, mowing becomes unnecessary, but watering becomes essential. Certain weather patterns can lead to insect infestations one year, but not the next year. Weather aside, a newly planted shrub may need extra fertilizer to jump start growth, whereas established groundcover may need a growth regulator to slow it down. You’ve got to be able to adapt to the surrounding environment and potential weather conditions. And management is all about knowledgeable adaptation.
