Why Should You Invest in Commercial Landscaping
● Attract Customers
A welcoming, attractive environment draws the attention of customers and creates a lasting impression that will keep customers coming back. New customers will be more inclined to purchase your products or services if they are treated to an approachable outdoor space. The first thing any customer will notice about your company is your building’s exterior.
Adding landscape elements such as trees, flowers, rock, or shrubbery is a great way to create an inviting space.
Maintaining all of your landscape additions is also equally important. Regularly scheduled lawn mowing, shrubbery trimming, and consistent mulching will help to keep your commercial property looking its best.
● Stand Out Against The Competition
A well-maintained entrance does more than draw in passers-by. It can help you stand out from the competition in your area. Studies show that an appealing exterior space will increase the rate at which you acquire potential clients and customers compared to your competitors. A properly maintained exterior can also show your company’s attention to detail and commitment.
Whether your changes are aesthetic or functional, well-executed commercial landscaping will help get you noticed by the right people.
● You Will Keep Employee Morale High
Research shows that a workspace with landscaping and plant life can improve morale, reduce stress, and increase productivity.
A study on healthy work environments states: “results indicate that as workday nature contact increased, perceived stress and generalized health complaints decreased.”
By adding a touch of nature to your property, you can improve your company’s overall health and productivity. Consider adding trees, shrubs, rock formations, flowers, or even a courtyard or outdoor space to promote employee satisfaction.
● You Will Improve Sustainability
It’s no secret that plants are good for the environment, but did you know they can also benefit your company’s image?
Sustainable landscape changes could include adding rocks to prevent soil erosion, native plants to attract pollinators, or adding mulch to prevent weeds and mitigating the damage from weed-killing chemicals.
These changes may seem insignificant, but they speak volumes of your company’s commitment to bettering the community.
● Improve Overall Safety
A very important upside to upgrading your company’s landscaping is enhanced safety.
Keeping your trees trimmed, shrubs maintained, and sidewalks in good shape can help your customers stay safe on their way to their vehicles and when driving out of the parking lot.
Removing dead trees or shrubs will not only improve the look of your exterior, but will also keep the most heavily traveled areas free from debris. Large cracks in the pavement, fallen branches, or untrimmed hedges could become a tripping hazard if they are not appropriately cared for.
Keeping these elements in check will decrease the risk of injury and give your customers a sense of security when exiting your property.
You may even consider including hardscaping such as speed bumps, stop signs and/or medians to control traffic in your parking lots keeping both pedestrians and drivers safe.
