Community Spotlight: Debris Clearing and Storm Response in Forest Hills with The Parke Company

landscaping and irrigation

From microbursts to thunderstorms to the occasional freak snowstorm, Forest Hills and the surrounding Tennessee municipalities are exposed to weather of all kinds. No matter what is coming, these communities owe it to their residents to do whatever it takes to be prepared.

Yet, preparation does not always equal prevention. It is just as important that well planned and thought out storm damage response plans are in place. Microbursts can tear down trees, rip up bushes, and relocate mulch and sod. Thunderstorms can flood roads, lawns, and parking lots at lower elevations and can lead to extensive erosion damage. Snow and ice storms can leave people stranded as roads become increasingly dangerous and impassable. The topography of Forest Hills is also susceptible to landslides, increased flooding, and lost integrity to root systems, which can result in extensive tree and landscape damage. In all of these situations, a swift recovery is necessary to ensure that people are able to get wherever they are going, home or back to work, as soon as possible and as safely as possible.

With one call to The Parke Company, Forest Hills residents can rest easy knowing that their municipality is in good hands. When the winds pick up, we suit up. While the snow or rain falls, we are warming up our equipment. While you are getting off the roads, we are already starting the cleanup process.

Our first and most important goal after any storm is re-establishing and maintaining safe conditions. Therefore, our municipal service teams start by clearing the roads of trees, debris, snow, etc. This also allows for safe passage so that we can get to work cleaning up damage as soon as possible.

From clean roads, we turn to restoration, whatever that entails. Whether it be debris clearing, reapplying sod, shoring up slopes and embankments, or emergency tree removal or trimming services, we have the crew, experience, and equipment to get it done. After severe weather, the people that have been affected have their hands full just trying to pick up the pieces. Our municipal storm damage services are here to lend a helping hand and to assist in your municipality’s storm damage clean up process in any way possible.

Municipal Landscaping Services With The Parke Company

Though we do this incredibly well, we don’t just offer storm damage response and clearing services. From Forest Hills to Nashville, and everywhere in between, we have what it takes to take on your municipal landscaping and tree service projects as well. Though we are experts in the field of private landscaping and tree removal, we are also known for our ability to take on much larger projects.

If your municipality or organization is looking for planting, gardening maintenance, weed control, mowing, or hardscaping services, let our team of professionals work for you. From brush clearing to right-of-way work, storm damage and emergency tree services to bag leaf removal, we have the skills, experience, and equipment to meet your needs. No matter the size, we offer a comprehensive list of municipal services and can tailor these to fit your land improvement or maintenance plan, whatever it might entail.

The Main Difference Between Private and Municipal Landscaping and Storm Response Jobs: Size

Though the customer interaction process is, of course, different, the main difference between a private job and a municipality job is the size. We pride ourselves on maintaining a large and highly trained crew, fleet of vehicles, and enough equipment to take on jobs of any size in a truly timely manner.

The Parke Company is owned and operated by Nashville natives and hires locals who are masters in their field of work. We are personally familiar with all that Mother Nature can throw at Tennessee and how to best respond. Being local not only helps us to better understand what to expect, it also helps us respond more quickly and provides us with a deeply-rooted, vested interested in protecting and maintaining the beautiful landscapes we all live in and love.

We then utilize our years of experience to custom-fit our skills and abilities with your landscape desires.

We can help you best plan for (and carry out) the installation of trees, shrubs, groundcovers, perennials, or seasonal plants. We can create and amend beds.

Budgeting – How We Can Help You Make the Most of Your Landscaping Management Investment

Budgeting is most people’s least favorite part of the project planning process. However, at The Parke Company, we love it! No matter the size of the landscaping project, all too often, budgeting plays a limiting rather than supporting role.

In many cases, someone has an idea of what they’d like to accomplish and puts lots of time and thought into this idea, only to find out that it is outside of their budget. We like to shake things up and help our clients realize (even exceed) their goals within their budget.

By leveraging our years of experience, our vast set of specialized skills, and our community-focused approach, you’ll be amazed by what we can achieve within your budget.

Once we have a thorough understanding of your specific projects and/or long-term maintenance goals, we will develop a clear, intuitive budget. We then take the time to review the budget item by item to ensure that you know exactly what you are getting and where your money is going. Throughout this fully transparent process, we remain flexible and work to achieve our primary goal, which helps you achieve yours. Our team of tree and landscaping professionals will offer suggestions that better fit your particular project and budget. Similarly, as with the planning process, we are always looking for your input and thoughts. It is not uncommon to develop a plan, review the budget, and return to the planning process.

This is all a part of our desire to provide you with the best, individualized service at the best price.

In the case of emergencies, we can provide rapid estimates so that we can get you back on your feet, and your life back to normal, as fast as possible.
