Curb appeal is just as important with business properties as it is with homes. If the outside of your business looks less than inviting, customers may pass you by, thinking your attention to your landscaping reflects on your attention to business.
However, if you’re like most business owners and managers, you don’t want to expend a lot of resources, both in time and money, on landscaping and away from your core business. That’s why it’s important to make the most of the time and money you spend on your commercial landscaping.
Tips for Improving Your Commercial Landscaping
- Choose perennial plants over annuals. While annual plants like petunias and impatiens can give your beds quick color, they have to be replaced every year and require daily watering. Better to choose perennial plants that will return bigger and stronger each year and require less watering.
- Mulch your garden beds. Mulch, whether cypress fibers or pine bark nuggets, adds a professional look to your landscaping. It also helps to prevent weeds from taking over your beds, while helping your soil and plants to thrive.
- Opt for native plants. Even though exotic plants from overseas can be intriguing to visitors, plants that are native to Florida will fare better and require less maintenance than plants from other regions.
- Be kind to the environment. Organic gardening can save you money. Consider collecting rainwater to use on your beds and saving grass clippings to improve your flower beds.
