David Keffer has already spied his first spring robin and the first cheerful crocus bloom poking up from the soil.
That means things are about to get real busy.

Does your commercial landscape maintenance contract include the spring cleanup services your property needs?
Hint: It needs a lot.
Spring cleanup and mulch often make up 30 percent of the cost of a commercial landscape maintenance contract, says Keffer, a branch manager at Level Green Landscaping.
“It’s a big part of the services we provide,” he says.
If you’re like most commercial property managers, you can’t wait.
“Our customers realize the importance of curb appeal,” Keffer says. “They’re trying to lease properties. They’re always anxious to get spring cleanup done.”
What should your contract include?
