If you’re trying to improve the exterior appearance of your commercial building, installing a flower bed can make a huge difference in creating an amazing environment outside your property. On top of the typical maintenance of your grounds, including raking, lawn mowing, mulching, tree pruning, and more, adding a colorful pop to your property that’s sure to attract and delight your visitors and occupants.
But there are definitely some things you should know before simply diving into adding flower beds to your exteriors. Without the proper plan and know-how, you may not achieve the effect you’re going for. Here’s what you need to know about flower beds for your commercial property.
Gather Information Before Creation
Before you do or buy anything, do your research! There are so many factors that you need to take into consideration when planning and designing your commercial flower beds, including the following:
- The climate
- The amount of sunlight that the area gets each day
- The types and colors of flowers you want to choose
- When and for how long each flower blooms
- Watering frequency
And these are only a handful of the factors you need to be aware of. If you’re unsure of any one of these factors, it would be very wise to hire a professional to make sure you’re not making any inadvertent mistakes.
Flower Bed Ready - What's Next?
So let’s assume you’ve done all the research, constructed your flower bed, and planted your flowers. If you think you’re done, think again. The fun is only just beginning! Your new flower beds will need attention and care if they are to remain as beautiful as they do as when you planted them. Making sure you’ve got the right watering schedule implemented is a good place to start with maintenance, as well as figuring out the right fertilizer to use, and making sure you weed and prune your flower beds to prevent overgrowth.
Hire a Professional
If you’re a commercial property owner, learning about and implementing all of the factors mentioned above would likely take valuable time away from other responsibilities, not to mention there tends to be trial and error associated with implementing any landscaping concept.
