Sometimes a commercial property is just missing something… It could be a lack of color, focal points, or a boundary to break up the open space. Possible solutions include the addition of new trees, a landscape garden, or even a water feature. However, an option growing in popularity with Houston area property owners is the addition of hedges or shrubs to break up landscapes, add dimension, and ensure lush color throughout the year. Today’s blog post will focus on several benefits of adding hedges or shrubs to your commercial property.
One of the best benefits of shrubs and hedges is that they can often be very low maintenance. Many varieties are easy to maintain and keep healthy, with little pruning or trimming needed throughout the year. There are also a wide variety of shrubs and hedges to choose from, depending on owner preferences regarding leaf size, future growth patterns, shapes, flowering options, and colors. In addition, most shrubs and hedges are evergreen so the property owner can enjoy lush green color throughout the seasons.
Can Help Shape or Define Properties
An added benefit of planting shrubs and hedges is that they can help define or shape a property. They offer privacy, shade, and noise reduction with very low risk to the commercial property owner. In addition, hedges and shrubs can add height and create unique perspectives and dimensions for a property, creating interesting focal points, accents and backdrops. Additionally, they can be trimmed to specific shapes for added beauty and curb appeal.
Disguise Property Problem Areas
Strategically planted hedges and shrubs can help disguise problem areas of property or hide secure areas of the property. Thorny varieties offer an extra form of external security for commercial properties, especially near windows, HVAC areas and other exterior electronic components. Shrubs and hedges can be a cost effective and aesthetically pleasing alternative to unattractive burglar bars or other security features.
