First impressions are everything when you're an HOA property owner, and you want to attract the likes of potential residents and keep current ones happy with a beautiful, well-manicured landscape. While you look for an HOA grounds maintenance company, you should confirm that they offer lawn mowing, spring and fall cleanups, mulch and seasonal flower installations, and snow removal. These four services are essential to maintaining your property's landscape in Michigan, as the seasons require specific maintenance to ensure it remains accessible and well-kept. Not to mention, it's easier to deal with one company that offers all of these services rather than several.
1. Lawn Mowing
Mowing is a well-known lawn maintenance service and should be offered by an HOA grounds maintenance company. Proper, routine mowing ensures your property looks well-kept and your grass is cut to an ideal height. After all, a mowed lawn contributes to the overall aesthetics of your HOA property. Make sure that you hire a company that will mow throughout the entire growing season, which typically runs from April 15th to November 15th in Michigan.
Lawn mowing services should also include edging, string-trimming, and blowing!
2. Spring & Fall Cleanups
The spring and fall seasons are perfect times to tidy up your property's landscape, which is why an HOA grounds maintenance company should offer spring and fall cleanups. Spring and fall cleanups should include:
- Clearing leaves and debris from your landscape beds
- Removing dead plants and flowers
- Cutting back perennials
- Removing leaves and debris from your lawn
3. Mulch Installation & Seasonal Flower Installation
Pops of color and lovely contrasts in your landscape beds can enhance the curb appeal of your HOA. Because of this, mulch and seasonal flower installations should be offered by an HOA grounds maintenance company. Mulch is a two-for-one deal, as it provides health and aesthetic benefits to your landscape. You can choose which type of mulch and the color you want to best suit your aesthetic preferences and add contrast to your property. It will also help to retain soil moisture, regulate soil temperature, and prevent weed growth. What's more, it will also return nutrients to the soil as it breaks down; after all, a healthy landscape is a beautiful one.
Flowers are beautiful additions that can add pops of color and life to your HOA property. A maintenance company will also use flowers that thrive in our area and are low-maintenance.
Some common flowers to add to your property in Michigan include impatiens, marigolds, and petunias.
4. Snow Removal
Our area is well-acquainted with snow, as it is - practically - guaranteed every winter season. Snow and ice result in inaccessibility and difficult terrain, which can discourage people from leaving the safety of the indoors. Snow removal is an essential service that an HOA grounds maintenance company should offer so your property can continue being accessible to potential residents - and those already living in your community! This service will clear snow off the roads and sidewalks to ensure your property remains well-maintained and safe during the winter.
