So you’ve bought property with the intent to revitalize a failing business district. A few tenants are interested in setting up shop but they’re largely turned off by the property’s current aesthetics. And now you’re wondering what to do because your own thumb isn’t so green. May be suggest bringing in a team that is well versed in commercial landscaping construction?
Fantastic looking, commercial spaces where tenants line up in droves for a potential space don’t just happen on their own. They require forethought and the skills of commercial landscaping construction experts. We can provide those types of services to you but first, here are a few general tips:
Do use the landscape in a way that spotlights the entrance to the commercial property and its tenants. This may include planting colorful vegetation, installing stunning walkways and specialty, landscape lighting that turns on automatically as daylight wanes.
Don’t forget to add elements that make it easier for customers and tenants to enjoy the commercial property’s outdoor space. Examples include decorative yet functional benches, water fountains, bicycle racks and recycling bins that blend into the landscape seamlessly.
Do keep maintenance, safety, ecology and expansion issues in mind. Choose a safety focused, design plan that is low maintenance, conserves precious resources and can expand or change when needed. Making such decisions will go a long way in keeping everyone’s smiles up and overhead costs down.
Don’t select design elements that work against your commercial property’s customer base, architecture and natural environment. Otherwise, you’ll be fighting a perpetual uphill battle on many fronts. Instead, choose landscaping elements that are inviting and look like they belong in the commercial space.
