Does the outside of your office park need a facelift? Or do you have an outdoor space but it isn’t doing anything to raise the property’s profile or value? The landscape around your office park is often the first impression prospective tenants and clients get of your operation so you don’t want it to look neglected or wasted, right?
If your office park looks a little sad, it might be time to call in the experts.
Here are 5 ways in which a professional landscaper can transform your commercial space, inside and out:
1. Green things up
Whether it’s revitalising an existing lawn, planting shady shrubs, or installing a whole new garden, a professional landscaper can bring a welcome touch of green to your landscape. And studies show that the chance to experience that green, to be outside in a beautiful space, does wonders for employee morale and can inspire and relax visitors as well.
2. Bring the outdoors indoors
The physical and mental health benefits of bringing living plants and installations into an office park or enclosed office space have been well documented. Don’t have much indoor space? Not to worry – a vertical garden is space-efficient, easy to maintain, and can act as a living artwork, revitalising your space.
3. Create pause areas
Once installed, attractive landscapes are best enjoyed during a quiet moment. By designing or re-designing an outdoor space, a professional landscaper will look at the overall picture, considering the use and desired impact of the space. Pause areas (from eye-catching benches to simple shady spots) are a great way to add an element of interest to your office park as well as encourage people to go outside, even if it’s just for a short break.
4. Build a water feature
The sound of running water can be soothing. Creating a visual focal point, water features promote relaxation and calm, and they look great too.
5. Add a security element
From clear, well-maintained pathways to strategic lighting, a properly landscaped space can help keep your people and your visitors safe.
Take note - Regular maintenance of your commercial landscape will help prevent any unexpected damages. Overall, this also shows your employees and visitors that your office park is a successful place to conduct business.
Using elements like the above, a properly maintained landscape can go a long way to uplifting the look and feel (and ultimately the value) of your office park.
