Every community association is slightly unique—slightly different from all the others—but they are united by a common purpose; the goal of the community association should, in any scenario, be to promote the common good of the people within it. This means that one of the top priorities of any community association should be to oversee the proper maintenance of common areas, and, in the summertime, that means HOA landscaping and lawn care. After all, most communities have these common areas, and it’s typically the responsibility of the association to maintain them.
There are right ways and wrong ways of doing this, however, and it is vital that the association works in the best interests of the community members by ensuring that the quality of work is high and the cost is reasonable for Community Landscaping. This means vetting potential lawncare vendors before signing any contracts. In doing this, the association should seek bids from many different HOA Landscaping companies, and weigh matters of both price and competence.
Specifically, the association should seek out a company that comes with solid references and a wealth of professional experience. Indeed, it takes more than just a “green thumb” to provide a good HOA landscaping service; it also takes a team of professional, trained laborers. By signing an HOA Landscaping company like this, the association ensures that it’s getting the most out of its money.
But of course, there are other factors to consider, as well. For example, a good HOA landscaping company will purchase their supplies and plants in bulk; this allows them to save money, and pass those savings down to the community association. The association should ensure also that the landscaping company does not need to purchase or insure any of its equipment. And needless to say, the association should ensure that any outside vendors are properly insured, reducing any liability on the part of the community or its members.
