Plant Health Care: A Prescription for Curb Appeal
Staying healthy takes work. From eating right to exercising, getting enough sleep and managing stress, good health doesn’t happen automatically. The same is true for plants and trees. When it comes to maintaining a vibrant landscape, Plant Health Care is the answer.
Campus Safety: Keeping Your Students Safe and Sound
Security and safety measures run the risk of making a school feel less like a place of learning, but a thoughtful landscape can combat this effect. Not only can it be employed to meet the latest requirements, it also plays an important role in softening or concealing imposing barriers or safety equipment.
The Grounds for Landscape Outsourcing
Doing more with less has become an unfortunate refrain for many schools. However, preserving the quality of education doesn’t have to come at the expense of campus appearance or safety. Outsourcing your landscape and grounds maintenance can help free up resources without sacrificing what matters most.
