A great business entrance can either make or break your client’s first impression. A well maintained lawn blended with unique ideas make way for a grand entrance for your clients and employees.
Great commercial landscaping varies undeniably with the size and type of your surroundings, yet keeping together a few common aspects that stand similar. The ultimate goal is to make your business premises attractive, inviting and plausible.
Here are 5 Commercial Landscaping Ideas to Help Create a 1st Class Commercial Landscape Entrance
Colorful flower beds
Mulched flower beds with their colorful blooms are guaranteed to upgrade your landscape. A closely packed bunch of flaunting flowers, blended amongst the greenery is an eye catcher.
Innovation and creativity pays off well and great ideas are always appreciated. You can experiment with the arrangement of the flowers to resemble your brand’s logo or name.
A walkway guides your guests to the front door and hence calls for some high maintenance. Taking your front entrance to the next level could mean removed a section of concrete and installing concrete pavers or stonework. Again, there’s a great opportunity to be creative. Why not incorporate a company logo, motto, or colors into the design.
The basic concern of any commercial landscaping design is to make sure that the front thing your client sees looks safe and attractive. Planting some beautiful hedges in the corners or adding subtle landscape lighting just adds up to the beauty.
Planting in containers
This is probably the best idea that goes well with any commercial landscaping plan. Planting your favorite flora in an attractive large container is a definite win for your décor.
Commercial properties are larger than most residential sites so it’s wise to add a king size container at the front entrance with your seasonal wonders. You can also opt to plant a small tree right in the centre of the container. Blending various colors and patterns using the containers will turn your location of business from “plain Jane” to “…This is amazing! If they take this much care with the exterior of their business, the must have exceptional staff and services”.
Understand your building, property, and clients and come up with ideas that’ll suit your overall style and budget.
Furnishing the site
Adding a bench to your entrance makes the place look more welcoming and comforting. After all, who wouldn’t want to just sit by and gaze at the calm surroundings of your beautifully sculpted landscape?
Having a well maintained bench made from either teak, metal or stone just enhances the beauty and décor. But remember one of the golden rules of commercial landscaping: “Regular cleaning and maintenance is must”.
It’s always inviting to have your visitors park close to the front entrance, but sometimes that’s not an option. Why not create small gardens throughout the parking spaces to break up your sea of concrete and give the sense that you care about the entire property, not just the front entrance. If you have a round-a-bout that clients can drive up to the front door and let someone out or pickup, go over the top in the middle island.
Set the bar high with extravagant plants, lots of color, landscape lighting, water feature, architecture, art, and trees. This is the place to make your mark.
