When you own a business, everything comes down to the bottom line. Landscaping becomes less about outright beauty and more about “How will that tree translate into profits?” If you’re designing a commercial landscape from scratch, there’s a lot to consider. Here’s how to get started.
How to Design a Landscape for Your Business
- Shop around. You know what you need, but not what you want. Too much color may distract customers from storefront marketing, while bare lawns and cracked sidewalks look untended and uninspiring. Find other businesses who strike the balance between tasteful and alluring landscaping. Note what they do well and how that could translate onto your property.
- Partner up. The easiest way to design a successful business landscape is to partner with a professional. Hire a professional landscaper. If you prefer to cut costs and do it yourself, discuss your plant options with a professional horticulturalist before purchasing trees and shrubs.
- Think returns. Many businesses plant partially mature trees to enhance their appeal right away. But even this strategy leaves plenty of room for growth. Design your landscape based on plants at their maturity, not what they look like now. You’ll save yourself headaches down the line.
- Get started. Like in business, you won’t see returns until you invest the capital. Once you’ve researched your design, it’s time to get planting. You’ll be amazed how a little curb appeal can bring the customers pouring in.
