As we begin to make preparations and how to budget for commercial landscaping services in the year ahead, it's worth taking the time to look at the big picture. The budget process can be overwhelming, but you don't have to do it alone! Now is a great time to strategize with your landscaper and prepare a sound landscape maintenance budget for the upcoming year.
Here at Complete Landscaping Service, we understand the importance of budgeting. In consideration of the past year, we also recognize that budgets may have gotten a little tighter. While some decide to cut back spending on the exterior of their commercial property, investing in this now can actually save money in the long run.
If a potential tenant showed up for a meeting with dirty hair, ripped or stained clothing, and an unkempt appearance, you would most likely reconsider renting an apartment or storefront to that person.
It may not feel like it, but spring will be here before you know it. What do you want your landscape to look like this year? What do you want it to do for you and your property? Setting landscaping goals is just as important as setting financial goals, lease up or sales goals, and personal goals. If you want to be the most memorable in the area or if you want it to help increase traffic to your property, now is the perfect time to collaborate with your landscape contractor to answer those questions and make plans to achieve your goals.

Façade is often used to describe a building’s front. The term derives from the French word for face. Just as we judge a person based on the face they present, storefront curb appeal says a lot about your business. Like the old cliché that books are judged by their cover, people’s first impressions are formed by the image that’s presented to them from the street. This impression solidifies as they approach the front door.
