Spring Site Inspection: Preparing Your Landscapes for Spring

As the snow melts and the ground thaws, warmer weather reveals the toll winter took on our landscapes. As a property manager or board member, springtime presents an opportunity to walk around your property and identify areas of concern from the winter and opportunities for landscape enhancements. We call this a Spring Site Inspection, and we highly recommend bringing your landscaper along to get an expert opinion.  

Here are 5 things we are looking for during a Spring Site Inspection: 

1) Dead Plants   

We will identify plants that need to be removed or replaced, as well as dead wood on trees and shrubs. It’s important to remove dead plants and wood to prevent pests and diseases from spreading throughout your garden.

Dead plants that do not survive the winter should be removed or replaced.

2) Safety Concerns 

We look for various site safety concerns including loose driveway or walkway bricks, the buildup of dirt and debris on shared roadways, fallen trees and branches, etc.

Loose driveway bricks can be a serious tripping hazard for residents.

3) Winter Damage  

We will identify any damage to your turf, plants, fences, and property, and present solutions for resolving these issues.

4) Drainage Issues   

We will look for standing water between houses and units that may be a sign of a drainage issue; such issues can lead to serious property damage if not dealt with properly.
