Why Proper Landscaping Can Make or Break Your Business
Commercial landscaping can make a huge difference in the way customers see your business. Well-designed and well-maintained landscaping says that the owners care about their property and anyone who may visit it, while an unkept property may as well be a ‘stay away’ sign to potential customers. Here are a few ways your choice of landscaping can make or break your business.
A lush landscape is a wonderful thing to have, but too much can easily fall into the category of ‘overgrown’. Be sure to design smartly and take care of any green space you have. Overgrown plants and shrubs will make a business look at best neglectful and at worst abandoned. Invest in a good maintenance routine for your landscaping to keep the space looking inviting.
On the practical side, your landscaping should be functional as well as beautiful. Neglecting to take your actual space into account when designing is a huge pitfall and can lead to issues like improper drainage and standing water after rain storms. Always take careful stock of what the property needs to function at its best before you begin any major landscaping project.
One of the most common mistakes you can make is designing a landscape with plants that attract insects. Plants which attract ants and aphids can also attract spiders as they enjoy having a ready food source. To minimize the risk of your lawn or business being infested, be sure to choose plants which do not naturally attract creepy crawly visitors.
