A well-maintained yard is a good feature of an ideal rental home. In many instances, property owners and tenants must unite and make certain that weeds, debris, and other eyesores are never allowed to spread unhindered potentially causing a drop in curb appeal and, in extreme cases, a loss of property value.
The first move to be ready for yard care season is to make certain that the lease explains the landscape responsibilities of the renter and the landlord. It is of significant value that the responsibility for which tasks to be completed are clearly assigned so that they don’t get lost in the shuffle.
Persuading your Lynbrook tenants to really work on yard care is vital also. Landscaping maintenance can be a heavy load for renters owing to the fact that it calls for so many specialized tools. A tenant will need to have in their possession or have permission from someone they know to use the right tools for the job, should they have agreed to tend to a rental home’s lawn. A lawn mower, rake, and other tools are basic necessities. It is not advisable to require a renter to evenly distribute fertilizer or weed killer products as tenants might not be skilled enough at using the proper chemicals in the proper amounts and areas.
Taking good care of the flower beds and maintaining other areas of the yard weed-free might be something you could ask your tenants to do. With that understanding, they’ll be in need of hand trowels, shovels, and other weeding tools to keep the yard in good order. The more serious tools are involved in difficult yard maintenance jobs. Pruning and trimming hedges, bushes, and trees generally involve the use of pruning shears, hedge trimmers, and landscaping saws and, ideally, should be kept in the hands of professionals, not renters.
Tenants can be trusted to do the many jobs that yard maintenance requires provided they can successfully pull off the yard work and also own the needed tools for the job. Unfortunately, so many tenants don’t have a lot of experience with yard care or may not think of making landscaping maintenance a priority. In the hubbub of run-of-the-mill life, tenants will in all likelihood forget to accomplish the less irregular tasks. There is the danger that a tenant may accidentally damage or kill plants or trees on your property as well.
