Tips to Manage Expectations, Curb Appeal and Your Budget
Landscaping services can take up a large part of your HOA’s annual maintenance budget. A well-kept landscape is critical to your business image and helps ensure homeowner satisfaction. However, balancing shrinking budgets with board and homeowner expectations can be difficult. Here are some tips to help resolve your HOA landscaping challenges.
Top 3 Challenges Resolved by Expert Landscaping Services
- Balancing homeowners’ and board members’ expectations: While managing the budget is the board’s top priority, property owners are typically more concerned about aesthetics. An experienced commercial landscaper can advise you on cost-effective ways to maintain curb appeal. For instance, a varied and colourful water-saving landscaping design and efficient irrigation management will significantly reduce your maintenance efforts and cost.
- Differing opinions on plant selection and placement: If only everyone could agree on colors and plant choices! The bigger your HOA, the more difficult it is to reach a consensus on landscape design and seasonal plantings. While it is important to get input from everyone involved, ultimately, you must choose plants that are best suited to your local climate and soil conditions. Sunlight patterns also impact the choice of your landscape design. An experienced HOA landscaping project manager can help you find the right balance between aesthetics and cost-efficiency. They will consider varying opinions and the ideal growing conditions to present attractive and functional options that will appeal to the board and homeowners.
- Dedicated landscape maintenance service: Ongoing maintenance is important to ensure healthy plants, trees and lawns. This can be a lot to handle when you have several other condo maintenance responsibilities to fulfill. Hiring professionals who provide year-round condominium landscaping services will make the job easy and efficient. Annual landscape maintenance plans are more budget-friendly compared to individual services.
