Landscaping can be a daunting task, which is why it is considered a widely overlooked aspect of business operations. However, the way your business is viewed from the outside can have a major impact on whether customers choose to visit your location.
As a business owner, you want the outside appearance of your building to be inviting and pleasing to the eye of people passing by. You want your business to stand out from others who you share the surrounding area with. You want to be the business that everyone remembers and comes back to. If you want to ensure this happens, then take your commercial landscaping to the next level by following these five tips.
- Remove Unwanted Bushes and Trees
Typically, the first place to start is by getting rid of all the plants, especially the ones that do not complement the overall look of your business environment. Do not be afraid to cut down any bushes, unsightly weeds, or ugly trees that are shedding leaves on your property. This gives you the opportunity to replant newer, more attractive trees in their place.
- Grow Different Types of Plants
When you grow different plants, you are adding life and color to your space. This includes anything from flowers and vegetation to trees and foliage. You can plant seasonally or choose evergreen and native grass that will stay pretty and lively even in the colder months. For best results, choose bright colored plants because they will most likely catch the eye of people walking by. Also, consider choosing a plant that blends in with your landscaping design and color patterns.
- Plant Grass of Sloping Land and Plain Stairs
If your property has different levels, try to hide plain or concrete steps by using grass. This might involve more effort to maintain the sloping lawns, but you will see the overall aesthetics are well worth it. You can also use layered entrances or a retaining wall, helping to stop erosion and water runoff.
- Improve Your Entrances and Pavements by Installing Flower Beds
Flower beds are the perfect way to emphasize certain areas of your building. They help guide and direct visitors to the place you want them to go by being a focal point. For instance, by setting up colorful beds around the entrance that incorporate colors that attract one’s eyes, you are offering them an invitation to step inside your building.
- Use Flair Sparingly
As a commercial business, you want to maintain a certain level of formality. Try to keep things simple, especially if your business is more professional. Minimize the use of flair and bright flowers, particularly in spaces outside the building. However, feel free to take advantage of bright flowers in areas where outdoor spaces are exposed, such as indoor courtyards.
It is not always easy knowing how much is too much or what type of flowers, trees, or bushes to use on your commercial landscape. Although you want your business to be inviting and pleasing to the eye, it can be overwhelming. This is when hiring a professional landscaping company can help take that stress off your shoulders.
