Commercial properties often feature large landscapes that require near-constant maintenance. Whether you need flower beds dotted across your spacious shopping plaza or manicured plots of land around a senior living facility, it requires a lot of planning and upkeep.
Don’t do it all yourself. Trust a reliable landscaping company to bring your property life.
Here are five ways the right contractors can benefit your business.
1. Commercial landscaping is physically attractive and welcoming.
Let’s start with the obvious reason: people will find your property more attractive with the right landscaping.
Whether it’s a university campus prospecting new students or a hotel inviting random passerby’s, lively greenery and a well-manicured landscape make your property more appealing.
Dreary grass or dying garden beds scream of neglect, which people can subconsciously associate with your business. “If they can’t take care of their landscape, how are they supposed to take care of their customers?”
2. Landscapers design in a way that’s easier to maintain.
Sure, you can try to handle all the dirty work yourself, but you may end up causing yourself greater headaches later.
A professional landscaper will know the right flowers to complement your exterior and come back strong next year, to avoid less time planting. They’ll also be able to lay out your landscape in a way that is easy to maintain, choosing manageable vegetation and positioning them in a way that makes upkeep a breeze.
Plus, they’ll have all the right equipment to do occasional pruning, cutting, fertilizing— you name it. One less thing you have to worry about, so you can focus on operating your business.
3. Beautiful landscaping can increase employee productivity.
Encourage your employees to step away from their desks and take a stroll around your beautiful complex. Walking breaks can be an excellent way to reduce their stress and can even boost productivity, according to Forbes.
In fact, employees who took two 15-minute walks a day saw a 30% increase in their performance, cites Huffington Post.
An inviting outdoor space will help to encourage your workers to get the refresh they need to return to their desks more engaged.
4. A well-maintain property is a crime deterrent.
Buildings with a drab outdoor aesthetic may trigger a sense of neglect and can encourage trespassers to think no one is present to fix it— imagining an easy break-in.
Creating a zero-tolerance for deterioration and maintaining a clean property can discourage vandalism, loitering and more.
When a business maintains their property, it’s obvious that someone cares about its well-being. The classier your landscaping, the more likely it is to assume you have high-security measures, deterring thieves or mischievous trespassers after hours.
5. The sharp aesthetic can increase your property value.
The Commercial Real Estate in the US industry has grown
by 2.6% in the last five years, reaching revenue of $1 trillion dollars
in 2019. Meaning, there are more options out there, and your when it
comes time to sell and move, you’ll want to leave with a pretty penny.
Simply put, having a stunning exterior can make your business look more professional or reputable, all while increasing your property value.
While landscape updates will be an initial investment, the bigger return will likely pay off when it’s time to sell.
