As residents of South Florida, we all know how devastating hurricanes can be. Apart from securing our homes and businesses, it is essential to prepare our landscapes to minimize damage and ensure a speedy recovery. In this blog, we will discuss some best practices for preparing your landscape for a hurricane, the importance of a quick response, and how Estate Landscaping’s Hurricane Response Program can help.

Hurricane: Best Practices For Landscapes

General Tips for Preparing Your Landscape for a Hurricane

Assess your landscape: Look around your property and identify any trees or shrubs that may be unstable or overgrown. Trimming back or removing these plants can prevent them from falling and causing damage during a storm. You would be surprised what can take flight during high winds.

Secure outdoor items: Store away any outdoor furniture, potted plants, and decorative items that can become projectiles during high winds. Place heavier items closer to your house or building to provide extra protection. Indoors is always preferable.

Drainage: Clear any debris from gutters, drains, and downspouts to ensure proper drainage. If necessary, install additional drainage systems to prevent water from pooling in your yard.

Reinforce structures: Check your fencing, gates, and other outdoor structures for stability. Make any necessary repairs or reinforcements to prevent them from becoming damaged or collapsing during a hurricane.

Hurricane Cleanup and Quick Response

After a hurricane, it is essential to address any damage to your landscape promptly. Fallen trees, branches, and debris can obstruct driveways, walkways, and other areas, making it difficult to assess the extent of the damage. Quick cleanup can help minimize the risk of injury, prevent further damage, and allow you to resume normal operations as soon as possible.
