Safety is an important concern for New Jersey property managers. The task to have your employees, tenants and all visitors having a safe and accident-free visit to your property is a top priority. When you think about safety on your commercial property, your landscape company may not immediately come to mind. However, with the right commercial landscaping company, like DeCarlo Landscaping Design, your landscaping service will soon be considered to be one of the most important parts and easiest way to ensure safety on your property.

Keeping Your Property Safe:

  1. Sidewalks in need of repair are a safety issue. This is where everyone from employees to visitors walks every day. If they have to walk around buckling sidewalks, and uneven areas you are at risk for a fall on your property.  By hiring a company equipped to fix these issues or replace them completely, you’ll be reducing this risk.
  2. Overgrown shrubs and trees can be a safety issue as well. Overhanging onto sidewalks can hinder the ability to traverse your property easily if they are blocking entrances or visibility on the property this can be a risk for issues as well.  A company providing routine maintenance will develop a schedule to keep your trees and shrubs trimmed and maintained.
  3. Soil Runoff or washout is another concern on a commercial property. When uneven areas allow for washout after a rain onto the sidewalk or on an area of the landscaping beds, visitors on your property are forced to avoid these areas and may slip or fall. Identifying areas of concern and putting in place measures to fix and prevent this from happening is what you can expect from a commercial landscaping company.
