Fortify Your Landscaping

Unpredictable weather can wreak havoc on your building’s lawn and grounds, with climate change expected to affect more and more areas over time. Now is a good time to take a look at your facility’s landscaping practices and protocols to see if improvements can be made.

One option that could help you retain a great-looking lawn even in harsh conditions is drought-resistant species such as turfgrass. These plant species are specially designed to survive in dry conditions and can perk right back up when moisture finally returns to the area. Another key is to properly prepare your lawn’s soil – look for tools that can break up tough dirt to allow roots to penetrate further and survive tougher conditions.
