‘You never get a second chance at a first impression’. This old saying is true for most situations including how your customers perceive your business. Therefore, while it’s important to present a clean and tidy internal business space, the same applies equally to the outside of your business premises. After all, it’s the first thing your clients will see and begin to form an impression of. Clearly, a tidy, functional and manicured property will begin to create a positive influence on your customers. And, an attractive exterior is likely to draw more customers inside. So, here are a few simple commercial landscaping ideas to improve the exterior of your property and create the best possible impression.
Simple Commercial Landscaping May Be Best
Attractive corporate landscaping doesn’t have to be complex. Perhaps just a well-cared-for healthy lawn is all that’s required. Crucially, whatever you decide, the landscaping should be in keeping with your business and building. For example, you may want to create an environment where customers, and employees, can relax. This may include the addition of garden benches or stone seating areas.
Maintenance is Key
When planning a commercial landscaping design, consider the maintenance requirements. Regular maintenance is important to keep your landscape looking fantastic. Again, keeping things simple may be the best solution. But that doesn’t mean you can’t include attractive hardscaping features. Furthermore, hardscaping elements are low maintenance and add structure and interest to a landscape. So, these might include stone retaining walls, stone pathways and stone seating areas.
Add Some Pop With Colour
Why not add a splash of colour to your commercial landscaping design? Adding raised beds with spring flowers and flowing shrubs will create an attractive and inviting look to your business. If you’re not sure what to plant, your local garden centre will provide lots of recommendations.
