We hold various certifications, to include a C-27 Landscaping Contractors License, multiple safety certifications and Qualified Pest Control Applicator licenses. NBI also provides regular training to all employees in order to take advantage of any cost savings applied through new techniques and procedures, or using the latest equipment to provide the most efficient and best quality service possible.
North Bay industries also services other types of surfaces like xeri-scapes, hardscapes, desert-scapes and various other landscaped areas. We believe in a scheduled maintenance plan at regular intervals to achieve ongoing maintenance and desired appearance. Care could include litter and debris removal, plant shaping, pruning, fertilizing, ground cover maintenance, weed/disease/pest control and general clean-up. Maintaining established landscapes can be costly if allowed to grow out of control. Employing a schedule paired with proper care of plantings maintains a professional looking area that our customers deserves.
NBI has installed, maintained and replaced all kinds of landscaped areas and is often requested to perform landscape establishment by our customers. Hardscapes such as signage, gazebos and walkways are incorporated into many of our existing contracts. NBI partners with our suppliers to make sure we have the right equipment for the job. Usually using power scrubbers, mobile sweepers and pressure based equipment to keep man-made landscape features neat and clean.
Unimproved and Non-irrigated Grounds
North Bay Industries is experienced in servicing unimproved grounds. Our experts realize the different styles of unimproved services can promote fire prevention, security and wildlife control measures that many of our customers require. We partner with our customers to recommend and formulate the best method to achieve these goals, while maintaining budget control for the customer.
Pest and Weed Control
NBI holds multiple Qualified Pest Control Applicator licenses and is registered in many counties around the Bay Area. NBI is has the technical expertise and personnel to implement an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest and weed management that relies on the use of current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of weeds/pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, will be used to mitigate pest damage by the most economical means and with the least possible hazard to people, property and the environment.
NBI has many irrigation specialists on staff with methods and practices in place to supply and maintain effective, yet conservative, irrigation systems. Simply turning irrigation on will not supply water in the most effective manner to a lawn or landscape. NBI can supply regular irrigation surveys and repairs to ensure there is no waste of water from the controller valve to the sprinkler or drip head. Our site superintendents are all trained and experienced in all aspects of irrigation maintenance and repairs. We also have a network of suppliers and consultants that we can use if necessary.
