Include landscape maintenance in your community budget
As you’re working on your community’s budget for the year, be sure you properly fund the line item for tree maintenance and landscape replacement.
Tyree Brown, a Certified Arborist and Field Services Supervisor for Rizzetta, advises communities to set aside 10 to 20 percent of their budget for landscape replacement and maintenance.
As you replace trees and landscaping, the best way to save money is to buy in bulk. Start by researching which nurseries have quality trees and plants, and buy several hundred at a time if they will be planted at the same time.
