Why Change Up The Landscape At Your Shopping Center

Things have been going just fine at your shopping center. The craziness of holiday rush and excessive customers is well behind you. Things have slowed down just enough while still bringing in customers at a steady rate. Why mess with a good thing? Well, now is the perfect time to update your shopping center landscape, and here are a few reasons why.

Timing

Keeping up your grounds in December is a mad dash because of all the people you have to work around. Plus, the cold weather and snow gives your landscaping company various extra chores to perform. Now that summer is here and fewer people are rushing around your buildings, you can evaluate how to update your look before the next big rush. Would your breezeways look more inviting with seasonal flowers? Do your hardscapes need a little extra something? Late spring and early summer is a great time to spruce up your looks.

Boost In Interest  

Mother’s and Father’s Day may give your stores a bit of a pick me up, but as a rule, you are looking at a slow down in business. With the nicer weather, people who might otherwise resort to retail therapy out of boredom can go hiking or picnicking. Boutique stores have only birthdays and hobbyists to supply. People are not running short on basics as much as they do during the winter. What can attract the interest of busy customers? New flowers, hardscapes, and shade trees are just a few additions that will attract new customers to your shopping center! Consider changing it up while you have the space and time.

Prevention

Quieter months give you time to think ahead. Check out your irrigation options. Figure out how to landscape in order to save money in the upcoming months. Talk to your landscapers about the safest way to decorate your parking lot. You have the time to catch the little things before they become big things.

The possibilities are endless!
