MODEL Landscape Maintenance Plan
During NEW project approvals, our Town requires commercial developments and other large developments to appropriately landscape - which they design for and install. However, as the years go by and personnel change (including landscape maintenance contractors), the landscaping sometimes (on some properties - not all) tends to go downhill ending in very unsatisfactory landscaping. I would like to propose to the Town that they adopt a MODEL Landscape Maintenance Plan for developers/owners to follow that has all the necessary elements to ensure that the landscaping is maintained in top notch condition in perpetuity. CAN YOU RECOMMEND A GOOD MODEL THAT OUR TOWN COULD ADOPT AND THAT DEVELOPERS COULD FOLLOW? I am looking for a scope of services that could be followed that would permit the landscaping to look as it was intended for future years. It would need to be customized for each specific project depending on the landscaping chosen, but it should nevertheless have some common critical elements (e.g., irrigation, fertilization, replacement, checklists, quality control, trimming objectives, etc.). One MODEL that I have come across can be viewed at following link:
Do you have any suggestions for other MODELS? Thanks.
