ProGreen knows that the hospitality industry is highly competitive. Often, hotels and resorts are forced to go up against neighbors right next door or across the street, each vying to fill their rooms with lodgers. Some compete on price, some on reputation, others on extra amenities, while yet others depend on a location that offers strong visibility from the interstate to win over guests.
So, when there are a number of accessible lodging choices available, the deciding factor for a weary traveler could all come down to which hotel property is the most attractive option. Now, it’s a given that people expect the accommodations they’re paying for to be clean and comfortable. But they may never make it that far unless the exterior of your hotel is enticing enough to draw them in.
Are your main entryways warm and inviting? What about the landscape surrounding the pool and recreational areas? Are the grounds well-lighted and safe? Are the sidewalks and parking areas kept clear of leaves in the fall and snow and ice in the winter?
As the owner, general manager, or regional manager of a hotel or resort, your main priority is to provide a guest experience that keeps your occupancy rate high while staying within budgeted operating expenses. Then, there is always that added push to increase revenue from hosting meetings and events.
This is where partnering with ProGreen can be one of your best moves.
ProGreen Is on a Mission to Help You Achieve Your Goals
We understand that not only does your hotel or resort landscape play a key role in creating a unique guest experience, but it can also be the difference between a tired vacationer making the decision to spend the night at your hotel or go to the lodge on the other side of the parking lot.
We also get the difference between creating a lush, resort-worthy outdoor environment that reflects the luxury accommodations guests are receiving indoors, versus the safe, open landscape most commonly associated with hotels hosting business travelers and corporate events.
ProGreen’s professional, uniformed landscape maintenance crews will be there like clockwork, keeping clean edges around every border and the turf neatly mowed; trees pruned and limbed up to maintain unobstructed views of the grounds and surrounding area; shrubs and hedges trimmed and healthy; weeds and debris removed; and flower beds fresh, neat, and tidy.
We’ll perform routine inspections of your irrigation system to make sure it’s operating at peak efficiency, and make adjustments and repairs as necessary. Your local ProGreen commercial landscape management team has the expertise to apply weed and pest control treatments and we will aerate, de-thatch, and fertilize your turf, keeping the soil healthy and your grass growing thick and vibrant.
In the wintertime, ProGreen is your snow and ice management team, too. We’ll be there to pre-treat surfaces to prevent them from glazing over when the freezing rain and ice starts coming down, and we’ll be there with shovels and snow plows when it starts to accumulate, making your hotel the safest port in the storm.
We’ve also got the resources and capabilities to add landscape enhancements like gently winding footpaths; a paver patio with comfortable seating areas set off by large container plants and shaded by the foliage of fast growing trees; or a stone retaining wall offering a place to sit next to the walkway so passersby can stop and take a break next to the soothing sound of a natural rock waterfall.
