Many businesses are judged based on appearance alone. After all, first impressions matter. That’s why you need a landscape that is welcoming and beautiful. Here are five tips to spruce up your commercial property landscaping.
1. Sloped Landscapes
Sloped landscapes offer a way for you to make use of the outdoor space you have to paint your business in a better light. Besides the overall aesthetic appeal of a sloped landscape, it has an added benefit of concealing the parking lot for better curb appeal.
2. Pops of Color
Bright blooms can grab people’s attention and create a sense of happiness before someone even gets to the front door. That being said, it’s important to choose flowers wisely depending on the time of year they bloom and maintenance instructions. A selection of annuals and perennials are always a good choice.
3. Retaining Walls
If you have a small space to work with, you might want to consider retaining walls. These provide depth and variety and give you more planting space to work with for added volume. This is also a perfect solution to a steep slope.
4. Local Plants
It’s always nice to use local plants as part of a landscaping design. These blend into the natural landscape of the area you are in and are often low maintenance. Another benefit is that these plants are already suited to your environment and so can thrive more easily than other plants.
5. Entrance Sign
Your sign establishes you in the neighborhood and helps guide customers to you. That’s why it’s so important to take signage into consideration when planning a landscape. You want the plants to complement the sign, not overwhelm it or make it difficult to see.
