The aesthetic appeal of your commercial property means more than most people think. The way your property looks sets the tone and creates an instant impression when visitors arrive for the first time. The more attention that you pay to the “curb appeal” of your commercial property, the more professional your business will appear. When potential customers, clients, or tenants arrive on-site, the first thing they see is the landscaping for your property or lack thereof. Landscaping companies in Rhode Island that specialize in commercial hardscape and landscape construction, as well as landscape maintenance services, are very valuable to business and property owners.
Clean It Up
Sometimes all your property needs is a simple clean up to make it look better. This is especially true for industrial properties, service-oriented businesses, and properties where it is mostly asphalt or concrete and not a lot of room for greenery. A full service landscaping crew can be called out on a regular basis to clean up dirt, debris, provide weeding services, and add a few appealing touches when needed. Tree trimming, shrubbery pruning, and hauling away of landscaping waste can often make a significant impact on a neglected commercial property. Color spots can be added near signage to help improve the appeal of your business, helping to improve the reputation of your brand and even increase business in some cases.
If there is no open ground to plant trees, bushes, or add colorful flowers, consider adding potted plants near the entry of your business or around signs. Speak with our landscape maintenance services for easy to care for plant suggestions that will look great year-round and improve the look of your property.
Focus on the Entrance
For commercial properties that are designed to attract customers, such as retail shops, office complexes, strip malls, and mega malls, make sure to focus on the entrance. If you have a large parking area, make sure to also focus on the entrance from the street to help set the tone for the entire experience. Trees, bushes, colorful flowers, ground cover, and even green grass can be very appealing and set your property apart from local competitors.
Our team at Eastern Landscaping can help you with ideas for landscape construction to find low-maintenance solutions that won’t require a lot of work throughout the year. Full service landscaping services can also be used for ongoing maintenance and clean up to prevent an additional workload from being added to your porters and on-site maintenance crew. Consider adding beautiful hardscape elements, such as outdoor seating areas, built-in planters and benches, lighting, water features, and more.
Add Beautiful Features
One of the best ways to stand out from neighboring commercial properties is to add beautiful features. Statues, fountains, intricate retaining walls, and colorful flower beds that get changed out regularly with the season can elevate the look of your property. Well-maintained trees, bushes, and flowering shrubs will add height, texture, and color to the overall landscape. Work with professional landscaping companies in Rhode Island that specialize in commercial properties for best results.
There are three primary reasons to increase or improve outdoor lighting for your commercial property. Number one is safety. You want to make sure that your customers and employees are safe when they visit after dark. Number two is to provide focus and highlight your landscape construction features to enhance their impact overall. Number three is to set the mood or add ambiance to the property. Beautiful lighting that is well-planned shouldn’t just make it easy to see pathways and entrances, but should also make your property look just as good at night as it does during the daytime.
