Preparing Your Multi-Housing Community for Spring: Part 2

cleaning the pool

Make your multi-housing community stand out by ensuring you have the amenities and landscaping up and ready to go by spring. Here are three tasks to tackle before the weather gets too warm.

Preparing the pool

Getting your pool in sparkling clean condition now will make the community happy when those hot days arrive. Start by removing any leaves that are on or around the pool. Once you take off the cover, it’s a good idea to try out the pump to see if it is running properly. Next, you can top off the pool with water if the levels are low. Finally, test the pH levels to see if they are where they should be. Add chemicals as needed.

Set up timers on the sprinkler system

Property managers are always looking for a way to cut the budget. By using timers on your sprinkler systems, you can save time and money. Adjust for spring and summer watering so they will turn on and off when you want them to. You can always readjust as the temperatures increase or during rainy times.

Plant flowers

Flowers add color, life, and joy to your community. Adding flowers in the common areas gives the place a cared-for appearance. If you want to save money and time in your flower-planting project, plant a mix of annuals and perennials. Your perennials come back every year so you won’t need to continually replace them. You will, however, need to trim them back to keep them looking nice. Annuals, however, are known for their vibrant, vivid colors, whereas perennials are usually more subtly colored.

Getting your community prepared for the spring will be a breeze if you have a plan and start early. The residents will enjoy watching the flowers bloom and seeing the beautifully landscaped property. A clean playground and pool will be an attraction to the community members as well. For more tips on a well-manicured property, contact Marquette Management today.
