For business owners, first impressions mean a great deal. Having a professional landscaping company take care of the landscaping can help a business achieve that lasting and important good first impression.
Commercial landscaping creates a personalized and unique outdoor setting that expresses a business’s taste and welcomes clients as they enter. However, business owners have a company to run; therefore, property maintenance may be the last thing on their minds. Professional commercial landscaping has many benefits, including:
- Physical and Psychological
Research by the Florida Nursery Growers and Landscape Association shows that landscaping can increase the resale value of the property by 14%. In addition, beautiful landscaping can attract the attention of clients and other people walking or driving by. Business owners without a landscaping solution should hire professional landscapers to boost the profile of their business and create an outstanding image among their clients. Clients consider businesses that have beautiful landscaping as detail–oriented and proactive; thus, most clients are willing to sample the services offered by such businesses.
Physical and Psychological
The advantages of human interaction with trees, grass, and other plants are well documented. Research findings prove that people find healing and stress release when interacting with nature, or when viewing nature through a window. In fact, workers are more productive when working in environments with plants. Even more important than what experts say, is what workers instinctively feel about the green spaces and plants in their working environment.
Many institutions are investigating and documenting the benefits of green spaces and plants on the environment. These organizations include Nature Sacred, Green Plants for Green Buildings, The Lawn Institute, University of Washington, and many others. Green spaces filter dust and pollution from the air, lower temperatures and provide shade in urban areas, and even reduce erosion into waterways. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, landscaping can influence the micro-climate around a building by 25 degrees Fahrenheit; thus, business owners can save on heating and cooling costs. In summary, the environmental impact of commercial landscaping includes:
- Water quality protection
- Reduced soil erosion
- Reduced heat buildup
- Improved air quality
- Natural resource conservation
- Rainfall retention
