For the record, "long-term" is typically considered three to five years. Not only can long-term planning help enhance the look and value of your business, facility or property, it's a powerful way to save money on both maintenance and enhancement costs. "It's all about the savings," says Davey Branch Manager Vito Monteleone. "That starts with communicating honestly and openly. Going over your entire plan with us can help us help you make better, cost-saving decisions. We want to hear your vision for your property and learn about anything coming down the pike. For example, if you have trees that have to come down but you'll be bringing a dozer through to renovate the site, we don't need to spend your budget grinding tree stumps." To save even more, says Davey's national design partner Anne Coke, keep maintenance in mind when formulating your long-term plan. "Consider how mowers, tree trimming trucks and fertilizer applicators need to access your property," she says. "If a property is difficult for maintenance crews to maneuver, then the time and cost to maintain the property will increase accordingly." Coke also uses special design software so clients can see the visual impact of a proposed enhancement project long before shovel hits soil. "You want your place of business to look inviting and perhaps even stand out as a billboard for passing traffic," says Coke. "I can show you many amazing plant varieties that offer showy attributes yet don't require an excessive amount of costly maintenance." YOUR LANDSCAPE BUDGET HOW PLANNING CAN SAVE $ It's been said that a goal without a plan is just a wish. And never is that more true than when it comes to long-term landscape planning.
