If you have been reading the news lately, you are aware of the fact that the state of California isn’t the only state in a desperate situation with regards to water supply. Those of us in the green industry know that this is not an uncommon situation. Other states in the south and the west have experienced similar drought situations that have led to substantial economic and natural resource losses.

In addition to water supply pest and diseases of all kinds have majorly impacted native and ornamental plantings across the United States. In the west, the bark beetle destroyed millions of conifers, just as the emerald ash for is doing for green ash in the mid-Western states.

Planning Creates Readiness

As a property manager or building engineer, you know that advance planning is the best approach for being ready for what may or may not occur. The truth is, none of us know what circumstances we will?be faced with in regards to the outdoor environment. Nevertheless, it’s smart to understand how to manage our budgets, risk and time for many potential situations as possible.

At Environmental Enhancements, Inc, we can help. The combined experience of our managers, designers, and planners is available for you. As you may know, one component of our Enhanced Landscaping Process is a collaboration with each and every one of our clients.

If you’re not a client, we welcome the opportunity to discuss a budget friendly site assessment study that will pay for itself in a short period of time, thereafter building up savings in multiple areas of property management.

If you never want to hear the words I told you so, please, give us a call.
