Florida’s summer rainy season can have a big effect on your facility’s landscape.
Heavy rains can lead to flooded lawns, steady winds can wreak havoc on trees, and a series of storms can result in standing water. MaintenX International wants to make sure local businesses are prepared for the rainy season. Their company experts are here to help your landscaping stay in good shape.
“A building’s landscaping is an important part of any business or company,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development. “When an area experiences increased rainfall, such as during daily summer storms, this rain can make a big mark on your plants, trees and grass. Proper maintenance of your facility’s landscaping is crucial to maintain curb appeal and saving money.”
For more than 30 years, MaintenX and its network of knowledgeable and professional technicians have helped businesses with their landscaping needs. Make sure your grounds stay green this rainy season with these top tips:
