As a savvy business owner, you probably have the interior of your building set up just the way you want it. You understand the importance of a modern and energy-efficient indoor environment, and you are aware of the positive impact this has on both your workforce and your clients. Have you stepped back and taken a good look at your outdoor image? Does it match your indoor image? If the curb appeal of your business location is not what it should be, it might be time to plan, or re-work, your landscaping.
The importance of landscaping for your commercial property really can’t be overstated. Here are some things to think about:
Energy. Tall, well-placed, and sturdy trees will shade your building and protect it from the elements, as well as lower your energy costs. In addition to that benefit, your workers will enjoy being able to look out at a very pleasant view from the windows, and that will have a positive impact on their mental health and productivity. Lining your walkways with attractive plants and shrubbery is very inviting to those coming in, as well.
Curb Appeal. When you are selling a home, your real estate agent will always talk about curb appeal. Potted plants, flowers. and a neat lawn can go a long way towards making a great first impression, and it’s no different with a business. As a prospective client pulls into your parking lot, you want them to feel right at home and comfortable.
Business Acumen. It shows that you are a person who cares about the details in life and that you care about appearances when the grounds of your business are well-manicured and attractive. People instinctively understand that someone who appreciates beauty and order is going to be someone who can make things happen. In earlier times, it was common for politicians and other government officials to create magnificent gardens to illustrate their strengths and positions of power in society, and a great landscaping plan can bring that same image to your own place of business.
