Great landscaping enhances the appearance of your commercial property. It will help you attract tenants, and keep them over the long term, but landscaping is about more than just appearances. Here are five benefits professional landscaping can bring your commercial property that you might not be aware of.
- Create the right atmosphere. Whether you’re aiming for a calming, soothing feel or you want to create an uplifting sense of energy, the right landscaping will help you convey a certain feeling to your tenants and their employees or customers. Branding is more important than ever for businesses these days, and landscaping is a great way to create a memorable brand for your property.
- Keep people flowing through your property. You can use landscaping to manage the way visitors move through your commercial property with pathways and special features. Direct attention to entranceways with bright colours and plants and line walkways with trees or shrubs to encourage people to go in a certain direction rather than milling about aimlessly.
- Complement the building’s architecture. Great landscaping should work in tandem with your property’s architecture. Use plants and flowers to accentuate your building’s best features and disguise anything you don’t necessarily want to draw attention to.
- Minimise water and energy use. The right landscaping can help you create a more sustainable commercial property by providing shade during summer and insulation during winter. You can also minimise water consumption by choosing landscaping that promotes great drainage and conserves water.
- Attract people to the businesses within. If you have a commercial property you can help your tenants attract more business with outdoor seating areas, shady courtyards and a visually appealing aesthetic. Your tenants will appreciate it and be more likely to stay over the long term.
