It continues to be a traumatic time for many businesses, manufacturers, and organisations. While many have carried on through the pandemic, with all its requirements, others will now be looking to begin to operate in ‘the new normal’.
So many will have had to undertake a raft of extra cleaning activities, as well as making major environmental changes within their premises. Through all of this vital work, it’s possible one other key area has been inadvertently neglected.
Are your grounds in good order?
The Victorian Poet Laureate Alfred Austin once said ‘Show me your garden and I shall tell you what you are’. The same could be said for the public impression made by the grounds around business, commercial, manufacturing and public service properties.
Concentrating on inside cleaning might have become such a focus that the outside impression offered to potential clients, users of your facilities and services, and the general public, has been neglected.
However, whether your premises are still to reopen, or you are now getting back into the swing of things as they now are, your surrounds will be sending an important message to the public.
Perhaps the lawn in your grounds has been allowed to change from its usual immaculate condition. This is not so different from so many locked-down people being frantic about when their barber or hairstylist can restore their chosen look! It’s also possible that, around your buildings, weeds and wildflowers have found a place to, literally, put down roots.
Around the edges of your commercial property might be a hedge that’s taken advantage of a quiet period to thrive; especially after the favourable growing conditions throughout most of the spring. Importantly, it’s possible that walkways have been invaded by moss, and this could lead to troubling health and safety incidents with either staff members or customers being injured.
