Unsure About Why You Need Commercial Landscaping Services?
Whatever type of business you have, your customers will gain insight into your character by the condition of your landscaping. Yet, maintaining your landscape is a time-consuming task especially when you’re trying to run your business. Hiring professional commercial landscaping services can help you make a great first impression.
But which landscaping company should you choose? Landscaping Solutions & Design, Inc. has over 45 years of combined experience in managing both commercial and residential properties.
The Differences Between Residential And Commercial Landscaping Services
To many people, residential and commercial landscaping tasks appear identical. Generally, many landscaping duties are similar. However, the impact of commercial landscaping can directly affect a company’s profits. Often, when your store makes a poor first impression, customers will head to your competitor’s business.
Accordingly, it’s even more important to hire a reliable landscaper. A skipped task for a residence is frustrating. Yet, for a business, it may mean lost customers.
Moreover, commercial projects are more complex requiring larger, heavier equipment. You may also require additional services, like snow removal from your parking lots and walkways.
Then too, industrial or corporate buildings tend to have stark, angular designs. A commercial landscaper knows how to soften harsh architectural lines and create a more natural feel.
Commercial Landscaping Maintenance Needs
Often, the maintenance needs of your commercial property aren’t all that different from your residence. Both require a lush, tidy appearance requiring lawn care, leaf removal, and pruning.
In the fall, routinely removing dead leaves gives your outdoors a neat and groomed appearance. This is the time to cut back any dead perennial flowers and grasses. It’s also a good time to apply fertilizer and weed control. Finally, don’t forget to winterize your sprinkler system.
Wintertime is a great time to apply new mulch. Additionally, you can prune many types of trees and shrubs in the colder season.
Certainly, springtime brings an abundance of landscaping tasks. First, you’ll want to inspect and test your irrigation system. You’ll also want to renovate any damaged turf and apply fertilizer and weed control. Now is also the time to plan and plant vibrant flowers to attract customers.
Finally, summer is the time to tidy up your plantings by pruning any spring flowering shrubs that have finished blooming. You’ll also want to neaten your beds by cutting all the now-dormant spring bulb foliage. Of course, keep those plants well-watered during the hot, dry months.
Commercial Hardscaping Needs
Often, when most people think of commercial hardscaping needs, they think of walkways and parking lots. Undoubtedly, these are an essential part of any business just as commercial landscaping services are. Yet, other types of hardscape features can add visual interest, texture, and function.
Frequently, we believe only restaurants can benefit from patios by offering alfresco dining. Yet, any business can enjoy the advantages of an outdoor living space. For example, a patio can provide you with an alternative to the conference room for business meetings.
Moreover, creating an outdoor space can help your business in other ways. A dedicated space, like a patio, provides workers with a place to enjoy break times. Plus, spending time outdoors can improve memory, reduce stress, and increase productivity.
Of course, creating an outdoor space can increase the value of your commercial property.
Outdoor Lighting For Your Commercial Property
Proper outdoor lighting is essential for the safety and security of your customers and employees. No one likes to walk across a dark parking lot. Plus, well-lit areas discourage thieves and vandals.
However, all too often, business owners create visual discomfort with harsh lighting in their attempt to provide safety and security. Sometimes, overly bright lights can be glaring and blinding.
Notably, the right lighting can create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Moreover, going beyond basic lighting fixtures can create dynamic and dramatic scenes attracting more customers. A professional lighting landscaper knows proper outdoor lighting design principles for the perfect effect for your business.
