Attracting new customers to your shopping mall, retail outlet, restaurant, or stand-alone consumer-based business is something that entrepreneurs and managers deal with on a daily basis. One way to stand out from the crowd and create a memorable shopping experience is by focusing on the exterior design. Upgrading the landscaping and hardscaping construction for your North Rhode Island business should be done with a team specializing in professional hardscaping design. At Eastern Landscaping, we have a team of highly trained designers and technicians, as well as all of the equipment and skills necessary to install the latest New England hardscape trends.
Studies show that today’s target shopping demographics prefer to shop in-store at businesses that feature an attractive façade. While commercial landscaping, which includes colorful flowers, shrubs, bushes, and trees, as well as lawns and other natural elements, can play a significant role, Rhode Island hardscape construction should be used as well. Hardscaping can include something as simple as a stone retaining wall around your planting beds or a project that includes built-in seating, stone planters, walkways, patios, and water features. What works best for you and your commercial property will depend on your goals, the amount of space you have available, and your budget.
Identify Your Goals
What do you want to achieve with your hardscaping construction project? Do you want to draw attention to a specific area, increase the function of a particular space, or simply upgrade existing elements to boost the real estate value of the property as a whole? Combining landscaping with professional hardscaping design is often the right approach to create a cohesive space that you will be proud to display in brochures and property advertising. Some of the most popular New England hardscape trends include the consumer experience – the things that they see, touch, and use when they first approach your shop. Winding stone walkways, beautifully paved driveways, and outdoor patio seating or waiting areas can make a significant first impression.
Walkways and other surfaces have multi-purpose values. Not only do they create a professional impression for all visitors, but they work to direct traffic within your property in areas where you want people to go. Other examples of putting Rhode Island hardscape construction to work for you include retaining walls and fencing to provide security, safety and keep visitors away from employee workspaces. Maintenance for hardscaping elements will be much less than what is required for landscaping elements, merely requiring basic cleaning, seasonal inspection, and minor repair over the years. All of your curb appeal goals can be achieved when combining hardscaping and landscaping with Eastern Landscaping.
A Long-Lasting Investment
One of the clear advantages of hardscaping construction is that it is an investment that lasts for many years and provides long-lasting, easy-to-customize results. When you contract professional hardscaping design, you can get the look, style, and performance that you want for your commercial property. Real estate experts can confirm that projects including hardscaping elements will increase the value of the property. The more you can do to reduce irrigation requirements by replacing large expansive areas of grass and landscaping with walkways, stone riverbeds, patios, and other projects, the more you will save on your water bill and other utility requirements. Low-maintenance hardscaping can limit erosion on your property, reduce maintenance needs, and keep your property looking great even longer.
When you work with our team of highly trained and experienced designers, we can help you make intelligent choices about the New England hardscape trends that will work best with your property. Avoid making costly mistakes by working with professional hardscaping design experts to maximize the return on your investment. We can assist with a wide range of projects, including patios, stairs, decks, walkways, pathways, garden areas, color spots, signage definition, community activity spaces, and much more. Arbors, gazebos, and other structures, along with fountains, water features, statutes, and focal points, can all be used to bring the look and feel of your Rhode Island hardscape construction project together.
