Parking Lot Maintenance: What’s included?

Property owners and managers understand that the parking lot requires a lot of maintenance. Everyday dirt, debris, and litter accumulate. Occasionally dealing with problems such as graffiti, illegal dumping, cracks, and damage are required, but in general week by week, the parking lot must be maintained.

Our parking lot maintenance service covers all of the above and more! When we are maintaining a parking lot we don’t just run a sweeper through the parking lot and go on our way. Our porters and laborers physically get out of their truck and use a tool to hand pick debris. Take a look at our parking lot power sleeping process:

  1. Initial Debris Removal – By hand, our laborers physically get out of the vehicle and use a picking tool. They move through the base lighting areas, curbed areas and flower bed areas where debris can be lodged and clear out all unwanted debris.
  2. Power Sweeping – The entire property is then cleaned using a power sweeper. Our laborers drive the sweeping machine through every inch of the parking lot to collect dirt, litter, and debris.
  3. Report – If graffiti, an area that needs repair, an abandoned vehicle or evidence of illegal dumping is noticed, our technicians write up a report to notify the management of issues that require attention.
  4. Final Removal – We leave the area completely cleaned, hand picking anything that was left behind, bagging our debris and deposit it into the dumpster.

There is nothing left behind after DeCarlo Landscaping Design comes to maintain your parking lot. From the hand picking to the sweeper machine our goal is to completely remove any unwanted debris, dirt and litter from the area and to leave commercial property owners or management with a clean and tidy parking lot.

Patio Design & Installation   

Over the past few years, many patterns, colors, and textures of brick pavers have been developed. This has left patio designers and installers many options for making patios, walkways and driveways come alive and the ability to completely transform your patio area.

Patterns – Using specific patterns allow us to define specific areas on your patio for a kitchen area, fire pit or sitting areas. Enhancing a specific area or designing a focal point is possible too, and this can enhance the interest of your guests and visitors.

Colors- The use of different colors can help to visually expand a specific area, give the perception of depth, and provide a general feeling of warmth or coolness. Our designers work with our clients individually to determine the best color scheme for their patio.

Texture – Our experts help to determine what areas would benefit from a smooth texture and which areas on your patio are perfect for a rough-textured paver.

Dimension – When we design patios, we take your whole yard and landscaping into consideration. Sometimes, when we see a particularly flat back yard, we design a raised paver patio which helps to bring a dimension that is missing.

Retaining Walls – Depending on the needs and the layout of your patio area, retaining walls can be useful in creating a bench area or divider on the patio.

Patio Design and Installation are one of our specialties here at DeCarlo Landscaping Design. Visit our page on Hardscapes and Patios to learn more about our design and installation process, as well as to see some of our before and after pictures. With over 30 years of experience in the business, you can bet that we are the company to transform your patio for 2016.
