Beautiful landscaping can differentiate your business from the rest. Tampa-based MaintenX International understands Florida foliage and the challenges that cooler fall weather can bring.

“Investing in and maintaining Florida-friendly plants is a smart business choice,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development. “When you have beautiful landscaping you’re helping to impress clients, show pride in your facility, and you can even increase your property value should you need to relocate.”

For more than 30 years, MaintenX International has been helping local businesses with their landscaping needs. Here are some tips to help be sure your building makes a great impression this fall:

1.    Create a Strong Foundation: Planting during the cooler months allows plants to establish a strong root structure before the hot and rainy summer months. Consider planting new bulbs to enjoy during the spring, or experiment with edible plants such as rosemary or purple basil.

2.    Sprinkler Care: Early fall is a great time to perform preventative maintenance on your irrigation system. This helps ensure that your plants will have adequate water, while the late season rains can still provide a buffer should you need to perform any repairs.

3.    Say Bye to Bugs: Take advantage of being outside during the cooler fall temperatures while you combat pests, like scale bugs. This is a great time of year to apply horticultural sprays to combat the bugs that can rob your plants of essential nutrients.

4.    Add Color: Floridians don’t get to enjoy as many changing leaves like their northern neighbors, but there are a number of ways to add color to a fall landscape. Planting annuals like pansys, petunias or snapdragons. Festive evergreen hollies will keep their bright berries and poinsettas can add bursts of color during cooler months.
