Perennial Maintenance: Preserving the Beauty of Your Commercial Property

Maintaining a thriving landscape is essential for achieving success in commercial property ownership.

Perennials are essential for enhancing the visual appeal of your landscape. By investing in regular care and attention for your perennials, you cultivate an environment that leaves a lasting impression on visitors and tenants alike.

A meticulously maintained landscape is a testament to your unwavering commitment to quality and attention to detail, elevating the overall image of your property.

Our Process

At emi landscape, we understand that proper maintenance is the foundation of a healthy and thriving landscape. That’s why we offer perennial maintenance services to all our landscape maintenance contract clients.

Throughout the year, our skilled team carefully trims your perennials, utilizing sharp and sanitized hand pruners. This encourages year-round blooms, removes dead or unwanted growth, and maintains a clean and healthy landscape.

Our maintenance includes perennials like:

  • Salvia
  • Daylily 
  • Hostas
  • Coral Bells
  • Irises 
  • Nepeta

During our visits, we assess weather conditions and take necessary precautions to protect your plants, especially in drought conditions. If we observe signs of struggle due to dryness or other factors, we exercise caution and avoid unnecessary trimming or cutting. Our ultimate goal is to ensure the long-term success and vitality of your perennials.

Timing for Success

Our maintenance schedule is meticulously designed to prioritize the timing required for the optimal health of your perennials. Here’s an overview of our process:

  • March: As part of our spring clean-up phase, we begin by trimming back perennials like Liriope before applying mulch.

  • Mid-April to May: Our attention shifts to pruning Daffodils, ensuring their proper growth and development.

  • June: We dedicate ourselves to the careful deadheading of perennials such as Salvia and Nepeta, promoting continuous blooming throughout the season.

  • July: Our focus turns to deadheading and the removal of expired or aged growth from Daylilies, Coral Bells, and Hostas.

  • August: We revisit the deadheading process, giving special consideration to perennials like Salvia, Coneflower, and Black Eyed Susans.

  • September: As the temperature begins to cool, we maintain the vitality of coneflowers and Black Eyed Susans through continued deadheading.

  • October to December: Our primary focus during this period is cutting back all perennial plants and ornamental grasses, preparing them for their winter dormancy, or what we like to refer to as “putting them to bed.”

By following this comprehensive maintenance plan, we provide your perennials with the precise care they need throughout the year. This systematic approach promotes their overall health, ensures their longevity, and contributes to a beautiful and flourishing landscape.
