4 Hardscapes to Consider for your Commercial Property
Many of the landscaping activities we perform are purely aesthetic, and lack any real functionality within your property. Simple landscaping installations that are cost effective, and provide real value to your property, have been the rage all of 2021. One of the most convenient ways to do this is through the installation of a hardscape. Simply put, a hardscape is the use of rock or stone to create landscape features, such as patios, walkways or retaining walls. We will go over the basic hardscapes that you can utilize on your commercial property, and see the most benefit from. These hardscapes are commonly used, and you can see them across all types of properties, commercial and residential. Here are 4 hardscapes to consider for your commercial property.
Everyone has been to a property before, and enjoyed a nice patio. High end restaurants, corporate offices, and luxury homes all typically possess a patio as a staple feature. Great for fostering community, they are a blank sandbox for you to play with. You can use a variety of landscape enhancements, from potted plants to lighting to tailor the patio to your specifications. They are also very maintenance free, and do not require a massive initial investment, as you can go cheap or expensive depending on your material and design selections.
Slipping right into this category of hardscape as it is so similar to a patio, walkways connect your landscape to your property. This could be a paver walkway through the side of your yard, connecting the front and the back, or a walkway through a garden keeping your plant material untouched. Another hardscape where design freedom is in your hands, it also provides that functionality we mentioned before. Not to mention that on a large commercial property, walkways are going to be a necessity regardless, so you may as well make them nice.
Probably the most functional hardscape on this list, these are great for leveling off a very sloped part of your lawn and assist with irrigation and drainage. They also prevent erosion of your soil, as they deal with surface runoff and can be implemented in various materials. Stone, brick or concrete can all be used. Furthermore, because they level off your ground, you are opening up a chunk of your property to landscape, with flowers, shrubs and trees.
If you have trees or shrubs, with beds of mulch, stone edging can be the perfect separation between yard and bed. Stone edging looks great, and requires little maintenance, while performing its job. Ensure that your mulch, wood or mulch, stays compact – use stone edging to give your property a higher end look.
