A well-maintained Atlanta commercial landscape speaks volumes about your business or property. The time and effort that you put into how great everything looks is an investment unto itself. So even though colder weather is upcoming, there’s no reason to neglect your commercial landscape and all of your hard work.
Maintaining a commercial landscape takes care and time. To ensure that everything looks beautiful and plentiful, equal amounts of energy need applied during all seasons of the year, not just during spring and summer.
In fact, here in the Atlanta area, maintaining a commercial landscape during fall and winter is just as important as any other time of year. Not only does your commercial property benefit from a beautiful landscape, so do the people who visit your business.
So to help you create a wonderful and hearty commercial landscape that brings lasting effects and repeat business, here are 5 tips to help you manage the workload throughout the fall.
Plan of Attack
No matter your level of expertise or your desire for extravagance, always have a plan of attack in place. Deciding what you want, and how you want it done, is important in setting a landscaping standard for your commercial property. Even if you expect to hire a commercial landscape company after your initial setup, a plan in place makes this transition easier.
Look at the Big Picture
A landscape’s design scope helps your commercial business succeed on a larger level as well. How you correlate your aesthetics with your building’s color and architecture is important to how others perceive what you have to offer. That’s why, it’s never a good idea to try to mix elements together that are uncomplimentary. When landscaping is done correctly, however, the end result should enhance what you have and add to the building’s architectural beauty.
To add to the above statements, consider landscaping with native grasses and plants. Not only will plants indigenous to the area add an element of comfort for those who visit your commercial business or property, but they are also far easier to care for in the long run. One of the biggest mistakes a commercial property owner or manager makes is when they attempt to add exotic elements to an otherwise simple property. Plants that fall into this category never last long, and you can pretty much guarantee that they will die during fall and winter.
Maintenance-Free is Great
After all is said and done, the best landscape is the one that brings in business but doesn’t remove you (and others) from it. What’s more, during colder months, and especially the rainy season, which begins in January, not having to go outside and manage a landscape is like a bonus. Further, maintenance-free also comes with a caretaker in mind. Hiring a commercial landscaper to manage your landscape leaves you to do what matters most.
Throw Down the Welcome Mat
Finally, a commercial landscape should invite people to come inside by creating a welcoming entry, a true statement in every season. The entrance to your commercial building is the first thing that people see, so guarantee that they feel welcomed by adding bright colors near the ground along with the door. People who feel welcomed by your entryway are more likely to return, which is just another important benefit of a great landscape.
The more work you put into your commercial landscape, the greater the chance of creating long-lasting customers and clients.
