LSU Ag Center:  Reduce Amount of Maintenance

Amount Directly Impacts Cost!

A recent post on LSUAgCenter.com urges:  “Don’t let landscape maintenance become burdensome.” Rick Bogren has it right – reducing the amount of maintenance does not mean eliminate!  The key, as Rick states, is to “reduce the amount of work it takes to maintain your landscape”.   The thing I like about the “Green Movement” is the concept of the Triple Bottom Line:  sustainability affects people, the planet, and provides a profit.  The fact that wise choices to reduce the manpower requirements of a landscape directly impact the cost of maintenance is significant.  It is the basis for our approach to Living Asset Management.  In these economic times, it is nice to know that beyond the “feel-good” effect of good stewardship is the underlying strong business case for sustainability.
