When a professional image is required, you can trust your commercial properties to the experts at NLS. By beautifying, maintaining, and upgrading your landscaping, you can increase property values, attract new tenants, and create a more pleasing and welcoming environment for visitors.
Whether it’s a single- or multi-tenant location, or a large corporate campus, NLS has the experience and know-how to help you look your best, while delivering maximum value for your landscape budget.
Just like politics, all landscaping is local, too. By definition, associations and multi-family properties have multiple constituents and are part of larger residential neighborhoods. School zones, parks, noise and day-part covenants all must be taken into consideration. We understand that our service delivery plan must integrate well with the greater community. On a practical level, a stable supervisory team ensures continuity year to year in a sector where turnover of HOA governance is common. A detailed record of history-of-service and other information particular to the property is a kind of “institutional knowledge” that clients rely on. We often help educate homeowners, governing boards, and other stakeholders on how landscape and property management best practices can help to maximize the value of their property.
We cut the grass and crunch the numbers. For many corporate clients, the look of their property is closely aligned with their public brand image. Corporate responsibility extends into environmental safeguards, resource management and sustainable business practices, all of which come into consideration in our landscape management plans. On the business side, corporate clients benefit from our proficiency with long-term budget projections, capital needs assessment, and ROI analysis. On the ground, there can be “micro-environments” across properties or within one larger campus setting where amenities such as sport courts and fields, indoor/outdoor eating and meeting spaces, or parking structures often require specialized equipment and skills to maintain.
Curb appeal is a competitive advantage. In the competitive world of commercial office leasing, a comprehensive landscape plan that is sensitive to costs as well as aesthetics is a strategic advantage. NLS creates programs that work within a property’s specific P & L and manages landscape capital investments so that your property looks good from the street and on the balance sheet. Our teams operate as the “eyes and ears” of property management, anticipating and planning for necessary repairs or enhancements. We also advocate for the property as a whole, surveying the physical structures, alerting management to issues that need to be addressed and facilitating their resolution.
Retail is detail. Effective maintenance of landscapes and hardscapes for retail properties requires the ability to execute across a full-spectrum of services – in a way that supports the property manager and is responsive to key anchor tenants. Service delivery strategies that minimize impact during business hours are always a key consideration. Sweeping and pressure washing hard surfaces, refuse pick up, maintaining median strip plantings, proper pruning of perimeter hedges, even lighting, are all managed with a particular eye for public safety and consumer appeal.
A private company with public accountability. Even more than other sectors, servicing the “public square” brings with it an additional burden of professionalism. Public parks, sports fields and green space frequented by kids and pets, as well as busy public thoroughfares and sidewalks, all require that we follow detailed operational procedures that safeguard citizens and property. Contracting with local governments and public entities not only requires cooperative relationships with city maintenance departments, but it holds us to an overall higher standard of integrity. Because of our commitment to and respect for our team, all of our business and hiring practices are compliant with state and federal wage and labor regulations.
Our trees are a valuable asset to your property and community. Like any investment, you need to make careful decisions to ensure the long-term health of your valuable asset. Our pruning practices involve selectively removing branches within the crown and interior of the trees to reduce the risk of failure for the future while also promoting their health, integrity and a prolonged life. That’s what sets us apart from other tree care professionals.
