As a property manager, your actions can significantly impact your tenants. Whether you’re dealing with budget-related issues, vendors, property changes, tenant build-outs, or simply interacting with them on a daily basis, your decisions reflect on you and your company. Here are some common tenant issues and ways HighGrove can help you address them:

Landscape Enhancements Or Improvements

HighGrove is a full-service commercial landscaping company. Unlike many landscape companies in Atlanta, we offer much more than just landscape design. We also do landscape maintenance, irrigation, retention and detention pond management, and tree work.

We have several in-house experts who can assess your property and recommend enhancement opportunities that can solve issues and improve the value of your asset.

Security And Safety Problems

Trees And Lighting

One issue we see often is trees planted too close to lighting, whether it’s light poles in a parking lot or lights on a building. Over time, trees are going to grow taller and wider, eventually blocking overall light cast in the evening and early morning hours.

Our solution would be to have our Certified Arborists from HighGrove ArborCare complete tree assessment on your property to address these concerns.

Trip Hazards

Trip hazards are a constant risk, especially on older properties. Are there any issues on your property right now that could leave you open for a major lawsuit?

Those issues include sections of sidewalks that have been raised by tree roots, uneven hardscape, drainage issues caused by erosion that have not been corrected, low soil level on curbs where pedestrian traffic is prominent, and low areas in landscaping.

HighGrove offers a complete site assessment to target these issues first before recommending aesthetic changes to your landscaping.

Common Area Maintenance Costs


Irrigation can be a significant cost for a commercial property, but through effective water management, you can drastically reduce your water use. Simple modifications to your existing system can offer a great ROI.

HighGrove’s KnowWater program has helped many companies and properties reduce their water use by up to 70 percent.


Through a complete site assessment, HighGrove can target areas that are using more mulch than needed, such as a large slope that has a lot of pine straw.

Planting pine trees, for instance, will “self-straw” these areas and reduce the need for pine straw. In areas where pine trees are not viable, HighGrove will help you consider utilizing the proper landscape material such as turf, shrubs or ground cover to reduce overall mulch costs.

Seasonal Color

HighGrove is well-known in the Commercial Landscaping Industry for flowers. In particular, tulips are our specialty! Our experts can help you figure out what flowers work best for your property and where they should go to provide that extra POP!

In some cases, we may suggest moving, reducing, or eliminating beds, which may help you reduce not only your color costs but your irrigation costs as well.

General Landscape Maintenance Issues

Debris, Grass Clippings Or Dirt On Vehicles

If you have landscaping, complaints about debris, grass clippings, or dirt on vehicles are inevitable. But managing the expectations of the landscape is achievable. We are dealing with Mother Nature and trying to keep your property beautiful at the same time.

If there are areas where this is a regular occurrence, we can look at solutions to help the situation. In the case of turf near parking spaces, for example, changes can be made to this area to help this issue, like changing the turf to ground cover or another better plant material.

Aesthetic Concerns

When trying to renew or keep current tenants happy, there are some common aesthetic concerns that can be alleviated with a solid plan.

HighGrove has landscape architects on staff that work with our Client Relations Managers to address those concerns, whether that means updating the landscaping in the area to address the tenant’s concern or managing the existing material effectively to make everyone happy.

Is your current landscaping giving you the draw or curb appeal you, your tenants, and their clients desire? We’re happy to review this area with you to develop a plan to enhance the areas of concern to eliminate or reduce the complaints or criticisms.
