In any aspect of life, first impressions are crucial. As a business owner, this is especially so. Not only do first impressions come from your friendly staff and the atmosphere inside your business, but from what your guests encounter as they are arriving and departing from your building.
There is no better way to show the pride you have for your business in Madison than to surround your business with beautiful southern plants. Native, southern plants show the pride you have for not only your business but for where you live. Native southern plants also offer an abundance of benefits.
Plants that are native to Madison are already adapted to the climate, including extremes in temperature. They also attract native insects, butterflies, and birds, creating a natural habitat that all of your guests will enjoy when they visit your business. Choosing to plant native plants helps with their ecological preservation and will add to the “green reputation” associated with your business.
If you are interested in using native plants in your commercial landscaping, a great way to get started is to incorporate some of the following native trees. Red Maple Trees offer amazing color throughout the year along with much needed shade during the summer. They are known for adapting to any environment and will thrive in hot and dry locations as long as they get enough water. Similarly, Eastern Red Cedar trees are a fragrant species of evergreen trees that maintain beauty year-round. They produce berry-like cones that will attract birds and other wildlife to the area, giving your business a nature-like feel.
When deciding which native plants to use in your landscaping you may want to think about a few of the following factors. What pH balance is your soil? How much sunlight does the area receive on a daily basis? How much rainfall does the area typically get?
