Earth Day

What We Can Do to Help Our Planet

We all know our planet is an amazing place, and now more than ever we must strive to protect and promote the beauty of our one and only planet earth.

Earth Day is an event held every year on April 22nd to raise awareness and bring support to the protection and sustainability of the Earth’s environment.

The first Earth Day occurred in Wisconsin in 1970 and spurred both national and international rallies across the world. Today, Earth Day is celebrated by nearly 140 countries that strive to protect our planet from environmental dangers.

Here are some things you can do not just on Earth Day but every day to help reduce your environmental impact:

1. Plant a tree!
2. Pick up litter and recycle when possible
3. Reduce water and electricity usage
4. Minimize single-use plastic bags by using reusable tote bags.

When we all come together, we can make the world a cleaner, healthier place to live.

What is IPM?

What is Integrated Pest Management?

With industry focus continually shifting towards sustainable products and practices, the utilization of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program for pest control and plant health has become increasingly popular in landscape maintenance.

IPM is a way to manage and improve plant health by the prevention of pest activity, suppression of pests, and the preservation of beneficial insects. Additionally, the program focuses not only on insects or animals but diseases and weeds that can also have a detrimental effect on plant health. The program uses today’s most effective organic and non-organic chemicals to provide prevention, repulsion, and mitigation of pests in landscaping.

The IPM approach differs from the standard pest management as the goal is to minimize pest activity and damage while preserving insects or micro-organisms from the landscape, as most insects in our landscapes do not damage the growth or health of our plants. This method takes a more scientific and knowledge-based approach than the chemical-intensive nature of standard pest control methods.

Few components of landscape can impact the impression and appearance of both a property and your company’s brand the way annual flower rotations can. An ongoing seasonal color program includes a planting schedule that can change with the seasons to add color and curb appeal to your property. Our team at Chapel Valley works to create distinctive color combinations in concurrence with our plant management programs to ensure plants thrive throughout the seasons. Whether it’s incorporating the bright and vibrant colors of spring and summer or the warmer colors of fall and the holiday seasons, you can trust that Chapel Valley will have your property looking its best.

Contact Communication

The Advantages of a Single Point of Contact

Communication is not just an aspect of good customer service; it is the most important part of customer service.  Companies can attract sales, but it is good communication that keeps clients coming back.  

At Chapel Valley we strive to provide our clients with the highest level of service, beginning with a high standard for communication. Clients often come to us frustrated about the lack of communication from their previous providers. Realizing that communication is critical to service success and overall client satisfaction, we have made clear communication our top priority by implementing a single point of contact strategy for our portfolio clients.  

We realize your time is valuable, so you should not have to spend hours trying to track down your landscape provider, especially in the case of an emergency. When partnering with Chapel Valley, your portfolio will be provided a designated contact that is independent from daily field operations and acts as a liaison between your team members and the Chapel Valley team.  

This single point of contact provides oversight across the portfolio and focuses on quality control and your customer experience. Having one designated individual removes any confusion surrounding who to contact and how to contact them. In addition to their horticulture knowledge, they can assist in resolving questions or concerns surrounding service, enhancements, or billing. 

Their number one goal is your satisfaction and do so by taking a proactive approach to your sites, conducting independent site walks to ensure maintenance is on track, and finding areas and ideas for enhancement.

We believe that utilizing this strategy helps to meet both your current and long-term needs by ensuring your brand standards are being upheld consistently among your portfolio. 

Communication, whether good or bad, can leave a lasting impression, and we know ours will be a great one.
