5 Tips for planning and budgeting for your commercial lawn maintenance

As the New Year is underway, and you’re planning your budget for the upcoming year, you’ll most likely have to take a look at what’s going to be required for your commercial lawn maintenance. Maintaining your commercial property is a big job, and lawn care is a major part of it.

Here are five tips for planning and budgeting for your commercial lawn maintenance.

1. Evaluate your needs: Winter is the perfect time to begin planning for lawn maintenance. Before you can establish a budget, you’ll need to figure out what your lawn care requirements will be. If the Winter weather was harsh, you will need to replace damaged sod, plants, and shrubs.

2. Set your budget: Once you've fully evaluated your landscape, you can now set a budget for maintenance and repairs.

3. Create a plan: Once your budget is set, it’s time to create a plan. If your budget doesn't cover all that’s needed, you’ll need to determine what is most important, and what can be put off for a while.

4. Research: Research the products available on the market. If sod is part of your plan, look for companies that grow sod locally.

Consult with the turf experts at Modern Turf to determine the right kind of sod for your commercial lawn needs.
