Fall is a Great Time for New Landscape Installation Planning and Budgeting


Need to update the old or overgrown landscape of your commercial property? Exploring options for water-wise plants and trees? Considering smart irrigation or drainage solutions? No matter what’s on your wish list, Petalon’s experts suggest that fall is a great time to plan and budget your new landscape installation.


Whether you own or manage a commercial complex, school or corporate campus, HOA community or a shopping center, you may typically follow an annual budgeting approach for your property’s planned expenses and upgrades. The landscaping expenses of your property may also have to go through a formal budgeting cycle for approvals from management or the board. It’s very likely that you may need to present your proposals around the end of the year, so, fall is a great time to plan and budget for new landscape installations.

A systematic plan will also help you to:

  • Focus on the essentials: When it comes to landscaping projects, begin by taking stock of what you already have. It is possible that you may find:
  1. Decorative plants lost in the overgrowth
  2. Trees that require pruning or relocation for enhanced natural light or vistas
  3. A brick walkway or a pergola that needs to refreshing or highlighting
  4. Other overlooked landscaping features or hardscaping aspects that need attention

A thorough site analysis will help you focus your spend on truly essential elements, instead of creating a costly and unnecessary wish list.

  • Be realistic about costs: Understanding what each project costs will help you prioritize the items that you wish to tackle in the upcoming year and decide which ones can wait. Get a few estimates for creating a proper cost comparison and budget.
  • Maximize ROI: During the budget approval stage, don’t simply present or look at the estimated costs. Take into consideration the returns on your investment. After all, a good landscape design will:
  • Enhance curb appeal and add value to your property
  • Help you make a great first impression amongst prospective buyers, renters, and clients
  • Allow you to plan and control future maintenance expenses
