Every strata property needs to have a certain number of occupants to make a profit and one of the areas that help boost the attention of potential occupants is to focus on detail—especially that of your strata grounds.

This is because occupants often share the outdoor space available in a strata property, whether it’s for social or recreational activities. The aesthetics of the strata grounds can shape outsiders’ perceptions of your property.

So, how do you make sure that the grounds in your strata property remain well maintained and ensure that prospective occupants find your property attractive?

These critical strata ground maintenance ideas can help you do exactly that.

Create an attractive outdoor space for your occupants

One of the leading aspects of strata living that most occupants find lacking is access to the outdoors. Some people feel constricted and confined to their spaces, and perhaps feel as though they’re stuck in a box.

One of the best ways to address this issue is to give your occupants access to high-quality outdoor spaces, whether it’s the ground with a few tables and chairs or a courtyard. 

The important thing is to ensure that your occupants feel that they have somewhere to go and enjoy the outdoors, whether they want to take in the fresh air or just spend some quality time reading a book.

You should also keep in mind that while having these outdoor spaces is important, frequent visits from occupants require them to be properly maintained. 

Having a proper schedule, staff, and the right tools to ensure that your strata ground is clean and well maintained is also a critical requirement that needs to be considered.

Handle tree and flower maintenance

When it comes to the grounds in your property, trees and flower placement and maintenance are paramount to the aesthetics of your property. 

Since you’ll have many occupants—including kids and maybe even pets—living on the property, you need to make sure that you consider the types of plants and trees that you plant and their safety. 

There may be some plants that are poisonous to pets or can cause harm if accidentally ingested by children; therefore, safety must be at the forefront. 

It’s also important to ensure that areas with high traffic, including walkways, playgrounds, parking lots, and other areas are pruned for deadwood and maintained by professionals. 

Deadwood is also often the culprit that leads the tree to start losing its structural integrity. So, thinning a tree’s canopy can be beneficial when considering the overall health of the landscape.

Hardscape your strata grounds

Consider including some attractive landscaping like concrete walkways, patios, or even small ponds. Water fountains can also add a certain aesthetic to your grounds. While the constant white noise is something that your occupants will love, you also get the soothing sounds of water. 

A nice concrete patio could also offer your occupants some extra space to have barbecues or just gather around and spend an evening together over a glass of wine. Walking paths are also great additions to help occupants get a bit of exercise.

If you already have such structures on your property or are planning to expand your strata property to include more common areas for occupants to enjoy, hiring a professional strata maintenance company can help you maintain all these areas well.

Having a clean and maintained property also encourages your occupants to keep the areas clean and free of clutter. 

When keeping the outdoor spaces in your strata property clean and well-maintained, even the smallest task, from pruning trees to removing dead plants, can make a world of difference to your property and, especially, your occupants.

Make your strata property more attractive with these strata grounds ideas

Creating an attractive outdoor space is essential for strata properties to provide their occupants with a high-quality living experience, and professional strata grounds and garden companies can help you keep your property in tip-top shape. 

By including a combination of hardscapes and softscapes, they can help create an outdoor space that’s not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional for your occupants. They can also help with regular maintenance, including tree and flower care, which is crucial to ensure the safety of your occupants and maintain the overall appearance of the property.
