Commercial organizations of all types have had to change the way that they serve customers just to stay in business. Restaurants, coffee shops, and other foodservice options have all moved outdoors to offer patio seating and other al fresco dining experiences. Even shops have opened the doors and moved displays outside to increase the number of customers they can serve at a time. What is interesting about this whole trend, sparked of course by COVID-19 requirements, is that many consumers have expressed their love of outdoor dining and shopping experiences. Depending on the type of business that you operate, you may want to consider using hardscaping design in New England to provide additional space and opportunity to serve your customers outdoors. Full service hardscaping design and construction can help you achieve your goals, control costs, and maximize the return on investment.
Outdoor Dining and Shopping
While many cities have shut down popular streets to close them down for outdoor dining experiences during this unprecedented time, they won’t always offer this option. This temporary solution has been frustrating for some but inspiring and exciting for others. Businesses that see an increase in customer appreciation for outdoor dining, shopping, and other services, should start working to find a way to continue the experience as an option, even after the closures have ceased. Outdoor shopping and dining are very popular in other parts of the world, regardless of the weather. Consider new ways that you can offer this experience to your customers through the use of commercial hardscaping solutions.
Permanent and semi-permanent structures can be used to create a complete outdoor area through the experienced services available with our Northern Rhode Island hardscape construction. Retaining walls, covered dining areas, natural stone patios, fountains, and other features can all be added to create the look, function, and ambiance that you want for your business. Built-in seating and flower beds, along with other combination landscape and hardscape elements, can create a park-like experience for you and your customers. Consider all of the outdoor businesses throughout Europe and in large urban areas where they create increased customer spaces seemingly out of thin air. Creative use of hardscaping elements, coupled with outdoor heaters and sturdy coverings, can make the outdoors even more comfortable and inviting.

One example of Rhode Island hardscape construction that can have multiple benefits is the retaining wall. Commercial property owners can choose from a wide range of materials that can be used to create stunning retaining walls that add beauty and function. They can create a specific traffic flow, bringing customers from parking areas directly to the entrance. Retaining walls can also expand usable outdoor space, creating outdoor shopping or dining areas that can be used year-round. Properties with water control issues for storm runoff can utilize retaining walls and other hardscaping elements to prevent soil erosion and keep puddles off of sidewalks and parking areas. Retaining walls can also add color, texture and provide places for landscaping elements to be planted effectively. There are so many uses for retaining walls, and our team can help you choose the best solutions based on your needs.
