The quality of the property that an individual is stepping foot on will largely determine whether or not that person makes a purchase or not. This is especially true on properties where the client is deciding whether or not they want to live or work there. Properties like apartment complexes and office parks must make sure everything is to their tenant’s liking, and competitive with the market. The landscape is an important part of this, and as the blanket of the landscape, so is the lawn. While we oftentimes discuss the benefits of a well-maintained yard, this is simply not enough. To be representing your property in the manner you wish, it needs to be clean as well. Here are all the benefits of a cleaned and cleared yard.
Environment for Disease and Pests
One thing about debris and leaves sitting on top of your lawn is that they create an environment ripe for the spread of disease. Who knows what bacteria is present in any given type of trash, we do know that leaves trap moisture underneath. This excess moisture is a nutrient that the disease loves and will use to grow and spread. The same can actually be said about pests as well, as they need moisture to do the same. Keeping your property cleanly lowers this risk.
Curb Appeal and Property Value
If there is one day your property should be clean, it is the day an appraiser comes by. All jokes aside, a clean-looking yard will do wonders for your curb appeal, and people will notice the improvement. It will show off the investment that is your lawn, and the effort that has been put forth to maintain it. As we mentioned in the introduction, commercial properties are all about curb appeal and motivating the decision to make a purchase at your property. Dirty lawns will be the last thing a buyer is looking for.
Employee Motivation and Morale
The quality of a commercial property is not just important for the customers, it is also important for the employees. If your staff feel like they are coming in every day just to look at a dirty lawn, motivation will be nowhere to be found. Morale will be much improved when employees take pride in their property, perhaps even picking up debris on their own when they see it.
Safety of Everyone Involved
When it comes to what can be found in your lawn, debris can mean a lot of different things. Debris could include hazardous waste or even feces. These types of waste can carry more than lawn disease, but actual sicknesses that nobody needs. Avoid the risk and clean your yard.
