3 Reasons Why Commercial Landscaping Is Important

3 Reasons Why Commercial Landscaping Is Important

There is great value in having a presentable indoor office space, for both employees and visiting clients, but a well-manicured outdoor space is also greatly important. Clients, prospective employees, business partners, and those passing by will often a judge a company (if their logo is outside) by the presentation of the building and commercial landscaping. Some may not see the value in investing in professional commercial maintenance but in addition to the curb appeal, landscape design matters. Here are 3 reasons why commercial maintenance of landscape design is important:

Preserve Nature

In many industrial office spaces, there will still be trees and plants because it helps create an important balance. Green spaces are proven to help humans relax, and they also add a pleasing aesthetic to industrial architecture.

Employee & Visitor Safety 

Ensuring that walkways are stable and clear is of great importance for daily traffic and building retaining walls, if necessary due to the natural landscape of the area, helps protect from any natural shifting of eroding soil.

Management of Natural Elements

Along with guaranteeing employees and visitors have easy access to and from the office it is important to know how to manage natural elements, such as storm water. Landscaping can be planned in a manner to safeguard from excessive amounts of water by developing an adequate runoff system.

Landscaping is done best when it reflects your business’s’ brand identity and when you hire a full service and reputable company. Contact Cedar Grounds Maintenance to discuss your customized project!

Elevate Your Outdoor Space with Interlocking Stones

Elevate Your Outdoor Space with Interlocking Stones

Each summer we are met with the same tasks of tidying the lawn, repairing driveway cracks, and patio maintenance. Many people look for long-term solutions that alleviate some of the updates and cleanups of early summer maintenance. One of the best ways is to invest in interlocking services. If you are looking for a way to enhance the aesthetic and long-term functionality of areas such as your driveway and patio, then interlocking styles may be the perfect fit for you!

Interlocking Driveways

Interlocking steps and interlocking driveways help to elevate the aesthetic of your entire property. This solution is all-weather functional and durable. There are three general groups, according to Synergy Contracting for interlocking driveways: natural stone, concrete, and brick. Each option creates a unique and distinct look but all require little to no maintenance. If repairs are required, majority of the time it is replacing a stone or two rather than a complete driveway repair as is necessary with asphalt.

Interlocking Patios

Patios with interlocking steps boast similar benefits as interlocking driveways: a unique and distinct design; low maintenance and all weather functional; and a durable and reliable investment. Clean stonework and world-class craftsmanship in design and installation of interlocked patios, done by Synergy Contracting will make your home an envy of your guests.

5 Signs You Should Replace Your Windows

5 Signs You Should Replace Your Windows

For most homeowners, the world of window replacement is a complete mystery. In many cases, it can be pretty obvious when it’s time to replace your windows, but in other situations, it’s harder to tell. If you’re on the fence, these 5 signs should give you a clearer indication as to whether or not it’s time to get the ball rolling.

You find them hard to open and shut.

Hinges and latches can rust over time and window frames tend to shift preventing the window sash (the movable panels that forms the frame) from moving. These types of problems generally necessitate a full replacement as opposed to a repair.

The glass feels cold to the touch.

While single-pane windows will always feel cold to the touch regardless of their condition, the double-paned variety should only feel moderately cold even if it is very cold outside.

You have a high energy bill.

If you are finding your energy bill to be abnormally high despite having repaired your windows, it might be time to invest in new ones.

You feel drafts in your home.

Even small fractures in the glass of your window and cracks in the frame can let in a chilly breeze in your house in the winter.

Painting and repairing them would not fix the problem.

Evaluate the condition of your windows. If the paint is peeling and the wood looks like it’s rotting and falling apart, it becomes more cost-effective to replace the windows rather than try to salvage them.

If you’re in the Burlington area and notice these signs, it’s probably time to replace your windows. Head to the Custom Window Designs to get a free quote on your new replacement windows.
