Landscape Property Management Seminars

The 13th Annual LICH Green Industry Conference and Tradeshow featured two free property management seminars on important landscape issues facing property managers – selecting a landscape contractor and inspecting their work and how to successfully manage the renovation of an original 40-year-old landscape.

Seminar 1: Renovating a 40-year-old Building Landscape

12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Over 50% of Hawaii’s condominiums were built in a 10-year stretch from 1970 to 1980. Over the past 40 years the landscape grounds of these buildings have matured and been repaired countless times. Irrigation systems are less efficient and plants have become straggly or missing. Learn how to successfully renovate a 40-year-old landscape to improve irrigation efficiency, decrease water costs and increase the value of your building. Instructors: Allan Schildknecht has worked in the field of landscape irrigation design for more than 42 years. Jay Deputy is the PLANET Landscape Industry Certified Professional State Administrator for the State of Hawaii with over 40 years experience in the landscape industry and is a Director Emeritus of the Landscape Industry Council of Hawaii.
