You only get one chance to make a good first impression. So, what can you do to make it great? For your commercial property, you understand that first impressions all come down to curb appeal. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to boost it. There’s no greater way to add tremendous curb appeal to your commercial property than with the installation of seasonal color.
Of course, you might be wondering how to choose the best colors for your property. While an experienced landscape designer can guide you in that process, we’ve rounded up some helpful tips to help get you started with the process. An experienced landscape designer will follow these rules and principles in creating the perfect design for you.
Knowing What Colors to Choose
You know you want color but you’re not sure what color (or colors) to choose. One way to get started with the process is to look around your property and take in what’s already there. What is the color of your building, for instance? If you have a red brick building then red flowers aren’t going to pop quite the same way that they would against a white building.
In addition to the building, pay attention to other fixtures on the property. Many property managers and owners want flowers around the front signage, for instance. What color is that sign? Are there other structures that the flowers will be near? These answers will help you determine the ideal color choices for your property.
Along these same lines, your company brand is another factor to consider. You want your flower choices to coordinate with your logo in a way that it enhances your overall branding. Be sure to keep this in mind as you make your selections.
Using Seasonal Color Schemes to Your Advantage
The very best seasonal color displays are those in which a landscape designer has implemented a stunning color scheme that attracts the eye. It’s a design that looks like it was planned—not one that looks like a bunch of annuals and perennials thrown haphazardly into the property’s landscape beds with no real rhyme or reason. Instead, the colors actually “go together.”
Color schemes are effective because experienced landscape designers know which flower color combinations work—and how to arrange them. Color schemes are carefully laid out with lots of advanced planning.
Of course, there are different types of color schemes. For instance, they may be monochromatic, meaning that all of the flowers are part of the same color theme. There may be different flower types but they’re all the same hue—such as a wash of red or a sea of gold.
Color schemes might also be laid out in a complementary fashion in which the colors are different but they complement one another. A landscape designer who has a great eye for design will know what colors complement one another best.
Sometimes, commercial properties look stunning with color schemes made up of contrasting colors that really make the seasonal arrangement stand out as unique. Of course, this also takes an eye for design so that the layout doesn’t look haphazard but still looks planned—and visually stunning as a result.
Finally, it’s important to note that the location in which you choose to install seasonal flowers is really important. Not only is it critical to pay attention to what your flowers need to thrive (for instance, some need full sun while some will be fine in partial sun), but the physical location is also important for aesthetics. You want to ensure that you’re getting maximum aesthetic appeal out of your placement.
An experienced landscape designer can help you make the ideal location choice on your property so that your flowers thrive while also helping boost curb appeal as much as possible.
Choosing a Company for Your Seasonal Installation
Chances are, there’s more to seasonal flower installations than you may have realized. For that reason, it’s important to choose a company that is qualified for the job. The last thing that you want is to wind up investing in a seasonal installation that falls short of your goals. By choosing the right company for the job you can ensure that your display gets maximum appeal and therefore adds value to your overall property.
