When it comes to commercial properties, many owners simply choose an assortment of plants and trees with no regard to future growth or maintenance needs. Plants, flowers and trees are usually selected for their beauty and height, but there is not a landscape plan in place to account for future property needs. A professional landscape design or landscape plan can help property owners have a cohesive landscape that takes into consideration the owner’s budget, future property needs, and aesthetic wishes for the property. In today’s blog post, we’ll highlight the three primary benefits of having a professional landscape design or plan for your commercial property.
Owner Needs Take Priority
When commercial property owners decide to add landscaping, trees, or other exterior improvements, their amateur landscapers or tree crews often make recommendations and purchasing decisions without regard to property usage, future maintenance needs, and the owner’s budget. However, when property owners choose a professional and reputable landscape and tree care company, they can have a landscape plan that incorporates their overall landscape budget, property usage, future maintenance needs, and owner preferences. This helps avoid situations where owners end up with expensive plants that don’t live long, grass that requires much more maintenance, or trees that do not provide the shade and privacy desired.
Creates Flowing, Uniform Landscape Design
A common trait of commercial properties with no landscape plan in place is that they have a hodgepodge of assorted plants, flowers, and trees. These landscapes often have varying heights because of haphazard planting, with colors that do not complement one another. On the contrary, a professional landscape design offers a flowing and cohesive landscape that has complementary flowers, plants, and trees that are strategically planted for maximum beauty. A landscape design helps make the best use of the commercial property without sacrificing property beauty or health.
Offers Year-Round Beauty
A professional landscape design highlights the natural assets of the property while also ensuring that the property enjoys year-round beauty with plants and flowers that bloom at various times of the year. Amateur landscapers that do not offer a landscape plan will simply plant the cheapest plants and flowers possible that offer very temporary bursts of color. Landscape plans will consider the property needs to ensure that only the best plants and flowers are added that offer staggered bloom times to offer year-round bursts of bold, vibrant color. In addition, this helps property owners avoid periods of time with bare or bland landscapes.
