Budgeting for Your Property Now Means Less Landscape Worries Later
Designing a budget that fits your property, is an important first step in choosing your landscape provider
As you start to budget for your landscape provider for the coming year, you may be trying to collect lots of facts and figures. When it comes to a cost effective plan, there are five key things to keep in mind for your property.
1. Have a Vision for your Landscape
Work with a company that has strong landscape knowledge and expertise to help you during this budget cycle. You’ll want to identify your basic maintenance requirements as well as what you might want to consider for repairs, upgrades, and other enhancements. Think of the areas you want to focus on including:
2. Focus on Key Areas to Improve Value While Reducing Costs
Your property can benefit from cost effective recommendations such as reducing water use, recycling green waste, and converting certain turf areas to shrubs and sustainable ground cover. Keeping trees pruned properly makes your property safer and more attractive. As you start to budget, you’ll want to look at all areas of your landscape and how to implement a cost management program to maximize savings.
3. Estimate the Possibilities
Your goals and needs can be mapped out on a worksheet so you’ll have customized budget estimates with plans for one, two, and three year goals, as well as longer five-year plans. Knowing your long term goals will help you allot funds appropriately for example, you might plan to spend less year one, knowing that in year four, you have a goal of completing a custom design in your landscape. Knowing and planning for this upfront will help you plan accordingly.
4. Expect the Unexpected
During the year, unexpected costs come up and you may find you are unable to use your budget on what your property might demand. Having a plan in place to redirect funds from less urgent projects or having an emergency fund built in, will save you from stress down the line.
5. Save with Smart Irrigation Technology
During this budget season, our water management experts can perform a water analysis to identify areas of avoidable water waste on your property and make recommendations for upgrades to smarter technology. In many cases, the water savings pay for the upgrade in the first 6 months and after that, your bottom line just keeps looking better.
