5 Ways to Enhance Your Commercial Landscape Design


As a property owner or manager, we know you want to leave a positive lasting impression on your customers. If your property leaves something to be desired, we recommend taking a look at some of our best tips for enhancing your commercial landscape design.

1. Add Common Areas

Common areas create a sense of community on your property. They provide your customers and employees alike with a perfect place to get some fresh air and take in your gorgeous landscape.

Below are several features to consider adding to your common area:

  • Gardens with a variety of plants, trees, and shrubs
  • Seating areas with chairs or benches
  • Separate areas with low shrubs
  • Patios with tables and chairs
  • Fountains
  • Fire pits

2. Add Lighting

Proper lighting can not only highlight key features of your landscape but also improve its overall safety. Lighting helps your guests to safely navigate your property, minimizing the risk of slips and falls. In addition, lighting has been shown to deter invaders and burglars.

We recommend adding lighting to the:

  • Entrances and exits
  • Walking paths
  • Shrubs
  • Foliage
  • Signage

3. Add Walking Trails

Walking trails are a great way for your guests to get some fresh air and exercise. You can add pathways and walking trails through common areas, around your property, or through your landscape. Line the pathways with vibrant plants, rose bushes, trees, or shrubs to make them more appealing.

4. Create Shady Areas

Shady areas invite your customers, employees, or guests to sit and relax. Make sure you have trees, tents, or umbrellas to provide people with an escape from the hot sun.

5. Accentuate the Architecture

Ultimately, you want your landscape to make your business a more inviting space. We recommend accentuating the architecture by adding a variety of vibrant plants or textured shrubs to your entrance and lining the driveway with lines of trees or green walls.
