Every business with a yard has to consider what to do with their landscape. You may be tempted in this position to have a lawn slapped in place and be done with it. However, careful commercial landscape design can bring many benefits to business.
Setting The Tone
Your clients and customers see your landscaping before they set foot in your building, and the mood that the property conveys can set the tone for the rest of the transaction. Are you a formal place that takes pride in your solidity? Traditional paths with verdant lawns will impress your guests. Are you a company that puts zest in everything you do? Plenty of colorful flowers and arbors will help convey the fun.
Plenty of commercial properties have large areas that are for employees only or are dedicated to certain client activities. Landscaping can break up a property so that clients naturally find what they are looking for and your employees have dedicated areas cleared just for them.
Landscaping is the first area where you can take preventative measures to keep people safe by creating areas where people can walk without risking a trip. Designing a landscape with an eye for protecting people helps avoid trouble, and can give you peace of mind.
Space, like time, is money, and yours can be used wisely. Good irrigation systems and clever design will reduce your utility bills. For instance, you can place trees so that your building can take advantage of natural light and keep cool in the summer.
A good landscape design will make your business look uninviting to potential intruders. It can make it easy to spot people as they approach and make it obvious that no one can just hang around without doing business with you.
Taking these things into account when landscaping your commercial property will give your business an advantage. For more information about commercial landscape design and how Metro Lawn Care can help, contact us.
