Our primary clients are commercial property managers and owners. These individuals care greatly about their landscape, and for good reason. The quality itself can be a determining factor for individuals spending their money at their place of business. Better-looking landscapes are going to drive in more revenue, and a shoddy landscape is going to be a money waster. It is also important how the landscape is appealing, and to whom. Oftentimes the desired crowd will just be passing by, or only taking a glance at the property. This is why curb appeal is so important, drawing people in with exciting amenities. Here are a few of the ways you can increase curb appeal with quality landscaping.
Landscape Edging: Obvious Uniformity
One of the first things someone will look for in a landscape is cleanliness and organization. This cannot be the case if mulch and soil are spilling out of plant beds, and nobody can differentiate sections of the property. Landscape edging makes this so easy, using stone or metal to edge bedding, walkways, or the lawn. This will give off an organized feel to the property, and get you closer to that picturesque look. It is also an inexpensive addition for the benefit gained.
Consistent Lawn Care
In the same vein, the quality of your lawn is going to be a huge determinant of curb appeal. Dead turf will never inspire visitors, but a lush green lawn will give off a sense of care and investment. Utilizing a professional, you need to make sure your turf is routinely cut, fertilized, and aerated to keep it healthy. You also need to be on the lookout for lawn diseases, pests, and weeds, which can all be real eyesores. Avoidance of these issues will set you apart from unprofessional properties. An irrigation system can be another great investment to ensure a great lawn.
Front Entrance Landscaping
When talking about curb appeal, the only thing a visitor might see before your lawn is your front entrance. This could be well-lit signage, indicating the name of your property. Surround this signage with beautiful flowers, green grass, and perhaps a solid layer of mulch. If you are feeling up to it, rotating annual flowers for each season is a great option. There is great creative freedom available when it comes to your entrance, there just needs to be something there to look good and draw attention.
Tree Installation: Privacy
Another big factor in curb appeal can actually be the privacy of the property. We all know the phrase “curiosity killed the cat” and this certainly rings true on luxury landscapes. If views of your property are blocked off by well-maintained trees or shrubs, people will be intrigued by what lies behind them. Just make sure the rest of your landscape is well-maintained behind the tree line, and you will be golden.
