What Arbors, Pergolas, and Decks Can Do For Your Commercial Landscaping

Outdoor structures can really add a level of design and comfort to your commercial landscaping that nothing else can beat. Not only are outdoor structures visually appealing, but they can also provide a place for people to sit, rest, or even take shelter from the elements. Take a look at some of our outdoor structure ideas, including arbors, pergolas, and decks.

What Arbors, Pergolas, and Decks Can Do For Your Commercial Landscaping

Arbors 

Simply put, an arbor is a vertical structure that is typically placed in entrances, paths, and walkways. Arbors are usually small in size and have plants or vines growing on them. They simply provide a lovely way for people to enter an establishment.

Pergolas

Unlike arbors, pergolas are large in size and serve a slightly different purpose. They are different in that they actually have an open roof on them that’s connected to support beams, and the sides of them are open as well. This way they provide some shaded shelter without losing the outdoor feel. People can walk through them, sit under them, or simply just take in their unique beauty while passing by.

Decks 

Everyone knows what a deck is, and what many people don’t know is that they are not just meant for people’s backyards. Decks are a great way to expand any space, and not to mention significantly increase the value of any property. They are the perfect place for people to sit, rest, relax, eat, or socialize, making them a charming addition to your commercial landscaping design.

Commercial Lawn Maintenance Services You Should Consider

Of course, you want the best for your lawn, or at least you should. Think of your landscaping as an investment that you need to always protect in order to maintain its health and its appearance. You can do this in many ways, including fertilization, weed control, insect and fire ant treatment, aeration, tree injections, and more. When it comes to commercial lawn maintenance, we’ve got you covered.

Commercial Lawn Maintenance Services You Should Consider

Fertilization

You can have fertilizer applied by a method called broadcast fertilization. What this means is that the fertilizer is applied across the entire surface of a field by high-capacity fertilizer spreaders. This method is both fast and economical.

Weed Control 

All types of landscaping need some kind of weed control. You’ll want to invest in weed control for all of your turfs, landscape beds, and hardscapes.

Insect and Fire Ant Treatment 

Insects and fire ants can really disrupt your landscaping, and can even pose a hazard to anyone who sets foot on it. It’s important to control these pests by means of an insect mist system to get the problem under control safely and effectively.

Aeration Services 

You may want to consider a lawn aeration service, which basically means having your soil perforated with small holes so that the roots of the grass are better penetrated with air, water, and nutrients.

Tree Injections 

Tree injections are really pretty simple and can make a world of a difference in the health of your trees. Pesticides are injected into trees in order to prevent diseases, insects, and nutrient deficiencies.
