4 Signs It's Time to Change Your HOA Landscape Maintenance Company
Curb appeal matters, and it needs to be enforced in a community with an HOA. But it's not just homeowners who need to ensure their property is up to code; the HOA also needs to ensure that their community looks welcoming for their residents. HOA management is responsible for ensuring that the HOA landscape maintenance company knows how to properly maintain and enhance community parks, sidewalks, and medians. HOA managers have a lot on their plate, and they shouldn't have to be worried about whether the landscapers are doing their job.
In an ideal world, your HOA landscapers will ensure your community looks beautiful year-round if they're a reputable, professional organization. Unfortunately, some crews don't always do the job that they're supposed to do.
Is it time to replace your existing landscape management company? How do you know when to replace your HOA landscape maintenance company? Here are some signs to look for.
- Lack of Communication
When it comes to an HOA, the communication lines need to be open. After all, there may be times when the landscaping company will need to revisit the community's needs. A professional HOA landscaping company should be proactive and keep HOA management in the loop.
- Your HOA landscaping maintenance company does inconsistent work
How often your HOA landscapers show up for work is essential to keeping your community beautiful. After all, weeds can take over a landscape and get out of control quickly. A weed infested community park or median lowers the value of your community. And when trees aren't trimmed or pruned correctly, they may also create driving hazards. Landscape maintenance includes ensuring that the common public spaces, such as grassy areas, are clean, too.
- Too many complaints
Homeowners shouldn't have to deal with a rude commercial landscaping crew. HOA landscapers are required to act professionally in and out of the job site. Of course, it's not just rude landscapers that bring an onslaught of complaints. Overgrown grass, weeds, poor irrigation, unpruned trees, and other landscape issues are common complaints, too. If you're tired of fielding complaints from homeowners, it's time to replace your existing HOA landscape maintenance company.
- The HOA landscaping maintenance company doesn't offer suggestions
Water conservation is always a concern in Southern California. And with water rates skyrocketing, it makes sense to consider better landscaping options. That's why many California HOA communities are considering replacing their existing trees and plants with waterwise and native varieties. If your current HOA landscape management company isn't offering waterwise planting suggestions, consider hiring HOA landscapers that offer drought-tolerant or native plant install options, sustainable landscaping and other valuable suggestions.
What to Look for When Changing Your HOA Landscaping Company
An HOA landscaping company should be familiar with the unique needs of your property. After all, professional HOA landscapers are there to ensure that your community looks and feels welcoming and comfortable for residents and future residents. As an HOA manager, you shouldn't have to worry about how the landscape looks.
When choosing a new HOA landscaping company, it's wise to hire a company that can do the following:
- Irrigation repair
- Landscape maintenance
- Tree Pruning
- Approved plant selections
- Complete Tree Care
- Lawn disease treatments
