Every property manager, property owner, and business owner is in constant competition to keep their commercial property in tip top shape. It is simple, the better looking your property, the easier it is to attain new tenants, and retain the ones you have had for awhile. Staying up to date is especially important with the competitive nature of the current market, and there is a wealth of opportunity for commercial properties to make improvements and changes, up to 2021 standards. When thinking about these changes, it is important to keep in mind what is hot and trendy, as these will be the most eye-catching and relevant. With that being said, here are 4 commercial landscaping trends for 2021. Use these trends on your commercial property, and see the difference.
Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Landscaping
While this is more of an abstract idea than a specific enhancement or installation, being cognisant of the environment is all the rage in 2021, and just the right thing to do. When we talk about sustainability, we are referencing utilization of native plant material, especially those that contribute to the ecosystem, attracting pollinators.
Also, using space more efficiently, such as gardens on top of hardscapes, on patios or the roof, can be a great way to increase sustainability. This provides an immense amount of benefits, from decreased maintenance, which decreases cost, to decreasing waste. All great for the environment.
Outdoor Spaces and COVID-19
When the global pandemic hit, nobody was quite sure how it was going to take to pan out, and how long it was going to be in play. A year and a half later, we now know it is here to stay, and should landscape accordingly. Whether it be a corporate campus or an apartment complex, providing safe, socially distanced outdoor spaces can accommodate those who are more vulnerable, or just covid-concious. This can be in the form of a patio, a walkway or even just a jogging path around the buildings in your office park.
Commercial landscaping in 2021 is all about minimalism, low maintenance, and simplicity. With many budgets tightened due to the pandemic, it is all about getting the most bang for your buck. We are talking about functional landscaping pieces that also provide a great benefit to your aesthetic. Try using plant material to shape your property, lining your walkways to direct traffic, while simultaneously providing a pleasing separation between your yard and the walkway. Just work with your commercial landscape provider to find ways to make your property look good, feel good, and cost less, with simple style.
Hire a Commercial Landscaping Company
If you do not already have a commercial landscaping company on retainer, this is your sign to get one. We have written previous blogs on the benefits of the hire, from reducing costs, to increased safety and experience. In the long run, it will probably cost less as your costs remain consistent, and you are able to budget through the whole year.
