Once your property was fresh, young, and new.  All you needed was grass cutting and routine maintenance.  Now there are overgrown trees in need of tree pruning services, over-sized landscaping, erosion issues, dilapidated walls, and drainage concerns.

This can be a real challenge to an association’s budget!

Blade Runners helps you make an extraordinary first impression. We’ve helped homeowners as Parker Landscaper has done in many communities, condo and homeowners associations create a positive, refreshed, and inviting look to their communities.  How do we make this possible?

1)  We assess the entire property and consider what is needed.  We separate what can be salvaged from what needs full replacement.

2)  A budget is submitted for the entire project on a building by building basis.  Priorities are established and a budget is created to stretch from a 3-5 year period.

 3)  Detailed proposals are presented for projects as they are ready for completion.

With a good plan from Blade Runners, your property can be completely transformed in 3 to 5 years.

Plants have a life cycle like everything else.

It is wonderful when all is new…new properties, kitchens, even floor plans!  Yes, everyone likes fresh surroundings.  As properties mature, so do their plantings. They become overgrown and encroach over windows that once provided sunshine and brightness.  All too often, dense bushes block walkways, creating dark and sometimes dangerous paths to doorways. As time passes, condominium properties suffer from age like everything else.A1 Right corner before2Over grown there was a window at some timeHow do you deal with an outdated landscape that needs to compete with newer properties?  Do you remove everything? Do you plant or remove something here or there? Where will the needed money come from?

Blade Runners was called to revitalize the Bentana Park Condominium complex in Reston, VA.  Residents voted for a foundation facelift to update the property and help protect their real estate investment.  The Bentana Park Condo board president said, “We’re so glad we hired Blade Runners to restore and renew our community.  We once again have bright walkways, sun shining through windows, and a welcome environment for our residents!”

Hi Terry,

 

Thank you for the extra effort you and your workers took to make the landscaping at Forest Hills of Fairfax Community look really good for the Fun Run fund raiser for the Fairfax County Park Authority held in the community common area on 7 June 2014.  The community looked the best ever.  The Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and numerous other participants in the fun run commented on how good the community looked. 

 

Please pass the thank you along to the workers who were here on 6 June and performed the hands on work.

 

Regards,

 

Drummond Taylor

President, Forest Hills of Fairfax Homeowner’s Association

Messy Island 1Those dirty rings…you try scrubbing them out, rinsing them out, and you STILL have “Ring Around the Collar!” Those bare dirt-ridden islands. Seeding and watering just create a muddy mess. Where can you place your trash cans for pick-up? Blade Runners has created countless island transformations that eliminate the mud, lower maintenance bills, and provide safety zones for your children and attractive landing areas for trash receptacles.Island Solution d2

Here’s a safe spot for children awaiting their school bus.

Eric!
The goal of Tree Removal Denver CO is to provide a healthy lawn with a low weed population. Healthy green fescue lawns improve the appearance and enhance the value of a property. Healthy lawns also provide significant environmental benefits.

The lawn treatment (lawn care) industry is huge in the United States and for good reason. Lawn care programs, for example like my lawn care lawn mowing Brisbane suggests, are generally inexpensive and work very well. Lawns left untreated will quickly be overrun with weeds and turf will eventually disappear. Evidence of this can be seen on roadsides and unmaintained areas at public schools.
Establish a cultural practice: Make sure your mowing provider cuts fescue no lower than 3.5”. The mower blade must be sharp. One way to ensure no injury occurs during this task is to wear a proper pair of knee pads for work. Wearing adequate protection around vital body areas like knees always helps in the long run.. Consider an irrigation system for the maintained area.

Step 3: Decide on fertilizer: Too often, the quality and amount of annual fertilization is overlooked and not watched. This could be the most important element of your program. Poor fertility means poor grass, more weeds, and more chemicals. Besides, most people around here talked to a Brisbane’s synthetic grass supplier and made the property look prettier. It is also an area where contractors cut corners. There are 100% organic fertilizers but Blade Runners does not recommend them. The nitrogen is not stable and tends to release all at one time. Much of this drains from the property into the Chesapeake watershed. It is important to have a large slow-release component in the fertilizer. This can be a blend of organic and traditional nitrogen product. The slow release will feed the turf slowly, remain in the soil profile, and not leach into the sewer.

Step 4: Decide on seeding: Make sure that full core aeration of the property and seeding is part of the program.

Eric:
I do appreciate your efforts this past year and indulging the board members by hearing their concerns and addressing them. This goes a long way in keeping them happy customers. That is one area that I think B.R. excels at – you and your staff are always willing to give your time and attention to the customer and quickly respond to their concerns. It is a pleasure doing business with you.
