Lawn Love for Real Estate Investment Trusts
Lawn Care management has always been a tedious task, especially for companies who own multiple properties. Historically, lawn care has been the responsibility of the tenant, but this has proven to be ineffective. Policies can’t prevent lawn care from being forgotten or ignored. Landscape management creates a big problem and inconvenience for Real Estate Investment Trusts, also known as REITs.
Regular yard maintenance includes fertilization, dethatching, overseeding, trimming of trees and bushes, debris removal, and gutter cleaning. The curb appeal, or aesthetic of your yard is the first thing people notice, and it directly affects the property value of your home and the amount you can ask for when renting or selling!
Lawn Love allows REITs to manage multiple properties with ease. It usually takes multiple phone calls, hours of back-and-forth, and an in-person visit from a service provider just to get a quote for lawn services. Lawn Love’s mission is to build a smarter lawn care marketplace. In doing so, we can provide REITs with a more modern, streamlined experience, while also helping lawn care providers operate more efficiently, leverage technology, and thrive. We want to ensure that REITs and their customers are serviced by the very best in the industry.
Multiple Property Maintenance Tips
A beautifully maintained property can be ruined in a matter of months if an irresponsible tenant is left in charge of the maintenance. Rather than REITs doing thousands of dollars in deferred yard maintenance every time a lease ends, it is a good idea to include lawn care in rental agreements. This will reduce the risk of any potential damage, and your properties will maintain curb appeal. Services included in rental agreements, can allow for the rent to be increased to reflect costs of the services.
Lawn Care Services for Multiple Property Maintenance
At minimum, REITs need a weekly or bi-weekly lawn mowing and maintenance service for multiple property maintenance. This should include professional mowing of lawn areas with either a push or ride mower. Edging should also be included in the service, to create straight, clean edges around the driveway, walkaws, and landscaping beds. In the case that some areas were not reached with a lawn mower, trimming may need to be completed as well. In the end, the person performing the service should blow down all hardscapes to create a clean finish.
If you’re just taking over a property, and it has not been serviced in a while, you way want to consider a complete yard cleanup for multiple property maintenance. This is also a safety measure as it can help you avoid low-hanging branches, debris, or bushes crowding the walkways, which can all be safety hazards for tenants.
Gutter cleaning for multiple property maintenance will be a benefit for both you and your tenants. Regular gutter cleaning helps prevent interior and exterior damage to buildings, and is more visually appealing than dirty, full gutters.
Snow removal for multiple property maintenance may be necessary if your portfolio consists of properties in colder climates. Snow removal is sometimes city mandated and therefore lawfully required, so it is a good idea to book this as a regular service when winter comes around to avoid unnecessary fines.

Affordable Lawn Care
Real estate stock is an investment, and we want to help you protect your income. You shouldn’t be wasting money, or time, on lawn care services. We aim to create affordable services, no matter how many properties you have.
Quotes are based on the size of your property, lawn areas, driveway length, and more. We also consider the growing region, frequency of service, and mix of services in order to generate a price.
We offer service plans starting as low as $29, for weekly mowing and trimming services. In order to help you stick to your budget, we’ve created recurring lawn care service plans and bundles that are cheaper than a one time service. Most properties require at least a weekly or bi-weekly service, but the frequency of a plan can be adjusted at any time as needed. We never require you to sign a contract or charge you a subscription fee.
Our pricing is transparent, meaning you’ll know what you’ll pay for your service before the job is even scheduled so you’ll never experience any hidden fees. You can check out more information on pricing or get an instant quote.
