Commercial landscaping can make all of the difference in the world when it comes to a public location. It can take it from a simple building that is often plain, and turn it into an area that becomes much more welcoming and eye-catching. However, determining landscape design for a commercial location can be a bit trickier than for a residential area because there are several more factors that need to be taken into consideration. Here are three important things to keep in mind when designing your commercial landscaping.
Create A Grand Entrance
The entrance to your commercial location is the most important location because this is where people enter and give you business. Because of this, it is a good idea to make this a focal point when it comes to landscape design. You can really emphasize that this is the entrance by adding trees on either side, bushes, flower pots lining the side walk, or any other eye-catching design you can think of.
If your commercial building is in an area where there is a lot of foot traffic, this must be taken into consideration. A lot of landscaping does not hold up well when people are walking on it all of the time, such as grass or flowers. The areas where people are walking all of the time must be landscaped with rock or cement walkways need to be poured. Areas that aren’t generally walked on can have the grass, flowers, bushes, etc. and will be able to thrive and look beautiful.
When it comes to a commercial location, curb appeal is very important. You want people who drive past your business to have an excellent first impression of it. You also want the landscaping to capture their attention in the best way possible. By having a clean and well kept landscape design, you can accomplish this. This can be achieved by having clear barriers between grass and rock areas, designating locations for flowerbeds, etc. Also, incorporating colorful flowers is another way to capture positive attention because people are naturally drawn to the color and beauty of flowers.
