Your property is a culmination of many landscaping elements. Trees and shrubs provide a foundational structure, while smaller plant material accents with color. Irrigation provides much needed water to said green material, and lighting can shine bright at night. Lawn care services like aeration and fertilization can assist in nutrient addition, keeping your lawn greener than ever. This combination of services keeps your landscape comprehensively covered, however there is one important piece missing. The pieces of your landscape that connect all the others are hardscapes. Any use of stone or rock elements is considered hardscaping, however patios and walkways are the most common. Integral parts of any landscape, walkways connect parts of your property, and patios act as the foundation for spending time. Here we will go over the benefits of both, and how to consider them within your landscape design.
Patios: Common Areas are a Top Trend
It is safe to say that pretty much everyone has at one time or another spent time on a patio, whether it be to watch a Bears game, or whatever chi-town baseball team you fancy. Patios are great for hosting friends and family, or providing your commercial property a space for tenants to spend their time. Extending your living area, a patio brings your home outdoors. When combined with other landscaping amenities including plant installation or lighting, a patio can truly become an outdoor oasis. They are extremely low maintenance and even increase the value of your home. If that alone has not sold you on the benefits of patio installation, consider the improved curb appeal of your property with a patio present. Any amenity you can offer your tenants, will assist you in the competitive game that is commercial property management.
Walkways: Connect your Investments
Unlike patios, time spent on walkways is typically not idle as you move from one place to the next. Hardscape walkways connect your front yard to your back, or your parking lot to your front door. No matter the situation or property type, walkways must be present in your landscape. Installation will give off a feeling of structure and organization, with easily accessible paths to various places on your property. This is more important for large commercial properties where there are an increased number of amenities to connect. Creativity is not out of the question, as stones of different types, sizes, and colors can all be considered.
