Getting Ready for Yard Care Season in Raleigh Court

Raleigh Court Rental Property with Great Curbside AppealA well-maintained yard is a good feature of an ideal rental home. For the most part, property owners and tenants must team up to see to it that weeds, debris, and other eyesores are never allowed to proliferate. This could result in a loss of curb appeal or, in extreme cases, a devaluing of property value.

When getting ready for yard care season, check that the lease gives a clear description of the landscape responsibilities of both the renter and the landlord. It is crucial to clearly state who is in charge of which tasks so that they aren’t forgotten.

In addition, getting your Raleigh Court tenants to cooperate with the yard care is just as necessary. Landscaping maintenance can be an onerous weight for renters seeing as it demands 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 would be unwise to ask a renter to scatter fertilizer or weed killer products as tenants may not be proficient at using the proper chemicals in the proper amounts and areas.

Keeping flower beds in good condition and other areas of the yard weed-free are some things you can ask your tenants to carry out. With that understanding, they’ll be in need of hand trowels, shovels, and other weeding tools to keep the yard in good order. Onerous garden maintenance tasks may require serious tools. Many times pruning and trimming hedges, bushes, and trees will necessitate the use of pruning shears, hedge trimmers, and landscaping saws and should be wielded by skilled professionals, not renters.

As long as your tenants possess the needed skills and have the right garden tools for the job, they can be counted on to do the many duties that yard maintenance requires. Sad to say many tenants may not be skilled enough to properly perform yard care or prefer to not make landscaping maintenance a priority. In the commotion of day-to-day life, they will be likely to forget to do less seldom duties. Additionally, there is the likelihood that a tenant will accidentally damage or kill plants or trees on the rental home property.

Regardless of who is answerable when it comes to yard care, landlords have to do regular evaluations to make sure that the surrounding grounds of each rental home is being kept in good condition. This amount of oversight is important and inevitable, but it can take a bit of time. Why not try and see what Real Property Management Colonial can do for you?
