by Scott Acton, General Manager, Maintenance
An HOA community was frustrated over why sod installed by their previous landscape company wouldn’t grow in a heavily shaded area. They had already replaced it twice. When ArtisTree came on board, they asked us to replace it again. Instead, we explained why a groundcover would be a more suitable and cost-effective alternative.
After the groundcover was installed and later flourished, the HOA’s landscape committee chair thanked us, saying she was glad they had finally found someone who was "an authority" on viable plantings in the area.
We’ve never forgotten that comment, because we've built our company on ethics and education. ArtisTree enjoys sharing our horticultural knowledge with landscape committees, property managers, boards of directors and others involved in making maintenance decisions for their communities. We hold seminars on numerous topics, including how to be more water-wise, planting the right plant in the right place, and implementing standards set by Florida green industries.
We can turn your sod story into a happy ending, too.
