How a Consolidated Landscape Management Program Benefits Your Business

How a Consolidated Landscape Management Program Benefits Your Business

A consolidated landscape management program is a great way to streamline and simplify the process of managing your company’s exterior space. It provides a comprehensive approach that saves time and money while also improving the efficiency and effectiveness of your landscape maintenance. Whether your business is in need of snow and ice management, parking lot services, pressure washing, striping, sweeping, or landscape maintenance and preventative services, or all of the above a consolidated landscape management program can set your business up on the right foot to maintain your commercial exterior spaces. In this article, we’ll explain the benefits of having a consolidated landscape management program in place and why it’s important for your business. 

A consolidated landscape management program can help you save time by providing an all-in-one solution. 

Picture it as an easy button for exterior services management. Instead of managing multiple vendors or contractors for various services, such as lawn mowing, fertilization, weed control, irrigation, landscape enhancement projects, etc., across all your locations, you will be able to rely on one vendor to provide all of these services in one complete and customized package for your business. This helps reduce the amount of time spent managing each task individually and each vendor individually. Think accounts payable, invoices, work orders, customer service, contracts, and scopes of work. All of it for every service, vendor, and location are managed under one umbrella of a proactive exterior management program. Additionally, a consolidated landscape management program allows for better cost savings since all services are provided under one contract rather than multiple contracts with individual providers.

 

Another benefit of a consolidated management program-improved quality control. 

When all tasks, scopes of work, and areas of service are managed through one provider and handled by the same team, week after week, year after year, there is significantly less room for mistakes or miscommunication between different providers who may not be familiar with each other’s work practices and methods. Having one point of contact also makes it easier to address any problems that may arise during the course of the project.

 

A good consolidated landscape management program helps ensure consistency and proactive customer care across all areas of your exterior space.

By using a single provider for all tasks related to landscaping, you can rest assured that everything from mowing patterns to fertilizer applications will be done according to standard procedures and guidelines established by your provider—and monitored for consistent results and proactive solutions every time. Imagine having an army of landscape service providers across all your locations trained to solve problems before you’re even notified there is a problem. That’s good, consolidated, consistent, and proactive service.

 

For any business, risk can be a scary word…but it doesn’t have to be.

Utilizing a consolidated landscape management program can be your risk mitigation strategy for your organization’s exterior spaces. Through proper, regularly scheduled services, you can check the boxes of risk mitigation knowing that you are assuming and accepting the reality of exterior space risk, avoiding risk by enacting a mitigation plan (your consolidated management program), controlling potential risk with your proactive services, and transferring risk by assuming insurance and liability coverage of your management provider.

 

Robert Blake-Ward, CEO of Powerhouse, describes the Powerhouse difference,

“We have a unique approach; we seek to elevate our customer’s exterior services programs. How do we accomplish this? It’s a combination of more than 500+ years of industry experience with our management team combined with long-term contracted partners in the field to ensure the mission is met.  To ensure the service performance meets the standard – we utilize a strong combination of site verification and interface with our providers utilizing a proprietary portal so you can be assured your program is in the hands of experts.   With a national footprint of more than 12,000 locations across all 50 states, our customers can benefit from our scale in markets across the US. I often ask customers what business they are in and tell them simply, “Let Powerhouse be the expert in delivering great exterior services while you focus on providing your end users a great experience.”

 

Here at Powerhouse, we realize the need for commercial businesses to protect their organization’s nationwide footprint.

To maintain a standard of beautiful, regularly service properties for curb appeal and a seamless first impression at every one of their locations. That’s why our team at Powerhouse takes consolidated exterior management and kicks it up a notch by providing our customers additional value with access to our individualized, proprietary customer portal, a nationwide network of landscape contractors, and a team of highly-skilled exterior service subject matter experts from irrigation specialists to arborists, designers and lawn care experts rest assured that your organization in the best hands with Powerhouse. 

Overall, consolidating your landscape management program can provide many benefits for your business, including increased cost savings, improved quality control,  proactive service, increased consistency, and risk mitigation, across all areas of your exterior space. If you’re looking for an easy way to streamline and simplify the process of managing your company’s exterior space while saving time and money in the process, then implementing a consolidated landscape management program with Powerhouse Exterior Services is definitely worth considering.
