Tips For Planning Your Commercial Landscape

Choosing the right landscaping scheme for your commercial enterprise is just as important as the look and feel of the rest of your business location’s total exterior appearance. The one overarching rule is, everything should appear clean and neat as well as provide the well-known benefits of having plants. Here are five important tips to keep in mind when choosing outdoor plants for your business.

1. Sustainability is Key

Of course, we mean this in the ecological sense. But we also mean it in terms of low maintenance and neatness. You want to choose plants that shed little, consume little water, and that need trimming as seldom as possible. Tidiness and low maintenance will save your landscaping budget, and make your patrons feel more welcome.

2. Color is Key

While the most sustainable plants might be dessert plants- depending on your location of course- they tend to be low on color. You may have to choose plants that are somewhat more colorful than the most sustainable ones. Don’t worry, there are plenty of things to choose from that are both hearty and beautiful.

3. Make Water a Feature

Since you will have to provide a watering system for your exterior plants, consider using one that makes a display of itself. Fountains and waterfall installations attract the eye and place people at ease.

4. Send the Right Message

It should go without saying, but your landscaping should be welcoming while also match the character of your business and the surroundings in general. Choosing plants that match your personality may well match your business- if you are in business for yourself.

5. Have a Plan

If you haven’t gotten started yet, you probably have a good idea what you want your landscaping to look like. But that doesn’t mean you know what will work within the inherent limitations of the property. Consult a professional and have a well drawn out plan before you start buying plants and features.

These are just a few tips to help get you started with your commercial landscaping. If you're looking for a knowledgeable and experienced commercial landscaper, contact the team at Brilar today!
