The next time you drive up to a business that has beautiful landscaping, take a moment to appreciate the hardworking commercial landscape maintenance folks who keep it looking great. Having a lush, well-tended landscape at a business is more important than one might think. A beautiful environment is more welcoming to visitors and can help attract more clients. It has also been known to increase employee happiness—particularly if there is an area available for them to sit and enjoy the view as well as the fresh air.
What Is Commercial Landscaping?
involves the following to create an aesthetically appealing outdoor space at a business:
- Planning for the design
- Executing the design
- Installing the design
- Maintaining the outdoor space
Commercial landscapes are similar to residential landscapes in that they include things like plants and hardscapes, but they are also a little different from residential spaces. When working on commercial landscape projects, landscaping companies have to ensure that the finished landscape project reflects the values of the company. An example of this could be creating a low-water native plant landscape for a business that considers itself a green business
or that embraces green values.
What Is Involved in Commercial Landscaping?
Often commercial buildings have harsh architectural lines or boxy shapes that can be greatly softened by putting plants, trees, flowers, and shrubs in the right locations. In some situations, plants can be used to block unsightly utility boxes or sloppy areas. The right mix of plants and grasses can take a business from boring to beautiful.
Some businesses might also want to invest in other types of landscaping to bring a bit of paradise to their grounds. These include:
- Water features, such as ponds, fountains, and waterfalls
- Natural fences made up of shrubs or trees
- Areas for seating so employees and visitors can enjoy the outdoors
In addition to creating a landscape, commercial landscapers provide maintenance services to keep property grounds healthy, clean, safe, and welcoming to potential customers as well as to employees. These can include the following:
- Basic grounds care that includes mowing, mulching, and leaf removal
- Care of turf
- Plant care
- Ornamentals care
- Spring and fall cleanups
- Weed control
- Plant bed edging
- Mulch applications
- Care of trees
