Ever wondered “what is landscape design”? The most common assumption is that this important profession is merely focused on planting trees and mowing lawns, but that’s wrong.

Commercial Landscape Design - What Is It?

Commercial Landscape Design - What Is It.

So, what is landscaping in construction and commercial design?

This is the process of creating and maintaining stunning outdoor spaces that suit individual tastes, needs, and budgets. Earth Development commercial landscaping experts always consider commercial landscape design to be a process of determining the required function of outdoor space and working backward to create a space that looks good, represents the brand, and serves the right function.

Commercial landscape design spans lawn maintenance and installation, choosing the right plants and trees, creating hardscape structures and pavements, and building a space that customers, clients, and employees love.

Difference Between Residential and Commercial Landscaping

The fundamental difference between residential and commercial landscaping is the purpose of the outdoor space you create or maintain.

In many cases, residential landscaping is catered to families of just a handful of people. Commercial landscaping, however, often requires outdoor spaces to be designed for use by hundreds, if not more, people.

Commercial landscaping may also require the maintenance of larger outdoor spaces on a more regular basis.

Landscaping is not just about making things look good, though that’s a huge part of it. That’s why landscaping for commercial real estate is so popular. You can enjoy many benefits of hiring professional landscape designers for your commercial real estate, all of which ultimately help your business.

Environmental Benefits

More than ever, a company’s commitment to protecting the environment matters to customers. A great outdoor space shows your commitment to nature and it can even add a number of additional environmental benefits for your business.

Trees can be used to decrease noise and create shade, and in some circumstances, they may even help you reduce the cost of cooling your building in the summer and heating it in the winter.

Professional commercial landscapers can also install plants that use less water, saving you money on water costs and once again proving your commitment to reducing your company’s environmental impact to your customers and clients.

Financial Benefits

Nobody wants to shop at an ugly store, dine in a restaurant with a poorly-kept exterior, or do business with companies in run-down buildings.

With proper commercial landscaping, you’ll give more people a reason to visit your store or other commercial property. You’ll show guests and clients that you care about your brand’s appearance, and you’ll be able to cash in on those energy-saving benefits we mentioned earlier!
