Maintaining your building’s exterior is key to owning a successful business. One of the best ways to ensure that your building’s exterior is neat and guest-friendly is to invest in commercial landscaping. Commercial landscaping shows guests, and any anyone who encounters your business, that you care about your business and your customers’ well being. Research has found that the owners of well-landscaped buildings can charge about 7 percent more for rent than the average rental rate in the area.
Curious as how to beautify the outside of your building? Consider installing pavers to your commercial landscaping. Pavers are blocks made out of cast concrete, glass, cut stone, clay tile, or brick and are frequently used to create smooth, convenient surfaces in outdoor areas. They are most frequently found in exterior entryways and pathways. Pavers make your exterior commercial landscaping more convenient and much more attractive.
Pavers are exceptionally durable. In fact, they can withstand extreme pressure and weight and hold up with no problem. Pavers also maintain their interlocking form better than tile meaning that they will hold together despite the earth shifting underneath, and also will not crack as concrete would under similar circumstances. They have even been known to withstand a rare Georgia earthquake.
Pavers are also convenient in respect to the fact that repairs for pavers are minimal. When a repair is needed, it is a quick and easy process to remove the damaged paver and replace it with a new one. You will not need to replace a large area, as you would need to with damaged concrete. Regardless of the material used for the pavers, no coloring is added, meaning that the color of the paver will not change even after long periods of time. Pavers are also safe to walk on in bad weather as pavers have a slightly abrasive texture, meaning they never become slippery when wet.
Pavers are convenient, beautiful structures that can add many benefits to your building’s commercial landscaping. If you are interested in installing pavers, contact Great Estates Landscaping today for more information!
