Design a Parking Lot Garden

The first step to having a beautiful and memorable parking lot that leaves a positive impression on your patrons is designing a stunning greenspace. People take notice when there are beautiful flowers, trees, shrubs, and other types of greenery adorning an otherwise concrete jungle. Make your parking lot stand out from those properties surrounding you by plantscaping your commercial landscape.

Add Low Maintenance Plants and Trees

Beautifying your parking lot doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. All you need are a few low maintenance plants to add a little variety and intrigue to the exterior of your business without overspending on your outdoor upkeep budget. It’s been proven that trees and other types of greenery can have a very positive affect on people’s moods, which is beneficial to everyone!

Create Shaded Areas

In the summertime, there’s nothing worse than parking your car in front of a store for any length of time only to return to a sweltering hot sauna. Keep this in mind when you’re planning out your commercial landscaping projects and administering parking lot maintenance this summer. Creating shaded areas in your parking lot not only encourages customers to spend more time in your store, but it also gives your employees a nice, cool area to enjoy the outdoor space during their lunch breaks.

Build Beautiful Pathways

Brick or stone interlocking pathways are both aesthetically pleasing to look at while also providing a practical solution to leading your customers directly into your place of business. Strategically placing a pathway in front of your store makes it easier for customers to locate the entrance.

Plant a Variety of Flowers

Make your commercial outdoor space stand out from your competitors by planting a wide range of colourful and maintainable flowers that add intrigue. A colourful and well maintained outdoor space reflects positively on the way you run your business and this is a guaranteed way to attract more customers.
