GROSSE POINTE, Mich. - April 4, 2020 - PRLog -- Landscaping is far beyond planting shrubs or colorful flowers. It involves an understanding of what you can do to attract your desired type of tenants, to manage your landscaping through the seasons, and to streamline maintenance activities.

If you're a property manager saddled with landscaping responsibilities, then the following maintenance tips may help you get the best out of your rental-property landscape.

No matter where your property is located, there are specific plants suitable to your local weather and soil condition. They are known as native plants. This type of plant requires less maintenance and has better resistance to diseases and pests than non-native varieties.

Choose hardscape over grass

If you are a property manager seeking to increase your property's curb appeal while reducing maintenance time, then hardscaping may be an option for you. The use of hardscape features – such as pavers, walkways, and patios – not only saves you time but also gives your tenants an extra living space.

By choosing a hardscape over grass, you can give your rental property a nice-looking yard while reducing the time spent on lawn mowing and irrigation activities. Above all, studies have shown that properties with an outdoor living space tend to attract potential renters much faster.

Invest in landscape fabric

It is common knowledge among property managers that regular landscape maintenance can be a tedious, money- and time-consuming chore. An excellent way to save yourself the stress of regular weed removal is by investing in a landscape fabric (weed-control fabric). Landscape fabric helps to eliminate weeds, prevent erosion and split soil profiles. It is a good solution for reducing landscape maintenance.

Mulch regularly

Mulching is the process of adding material such as shredded leaves and bark, wood chips, and sawdust to the surface of your landscape. As a property manager, mulching is a vital landscape-maintenance activity that can help change the appearance of your property's curb. This is because regular mulching helps to suppress weeds, retain moisture, and regulate soil temperature.

Install an automatic irrigation system

The secret to any beautiful landscape is constant and proper watering. An automatic irrigation system helps you to save water, time, and money while achieving a healthy and lovely yard. One of the advantages of installing an automated irrigation system for your landscape-maintenance activity is that it makes watering your landscape easier.
