Business curb appeal has the potential to draw people to your door or push them away before they even step inside. Keeping your commercial property’s landscaping sharp year-round means consistent business, even when winter sets in.

Follow these tips to improve your business’s outward appearance and keep your landscaping in great shape all year.

 

Use Mulch

 

Mulch gives your plants a clean look and offers a visual contrast to your landscaping. As an essential landscaping component, it also provides benefits like:

  • Weed prevention
  • Moisture retention
  • Soil temperature maintenance
  • Erosion protection

Mulch keeps your plants healthier longer and with less maintenance. Because it retains moisture, you don’t have to water your plants as much, and you don’t have to worry about spending extra time pulling weeds.

 

Plant and Prune at the Right Times

 

Knowing when to plant makes all the difference in how your shrubs and flowers grow. You should plant trees and shrubs on your property in the fall and early winter. That’s when the soil retains the most moisture before it starts to freeze and become harder to dig.

Pruning is a vital part of keeping your plants healthy, too, but you must do it at the right time to avoid harming your plants. Ideally, you should prune in the winter, as the trees don’t need their energy to grow and can focus on healing.

Don’t forget to plant some winter shrubs and flowers, like camellia, to give your property some color. You should also winterize your plants to protect them through the colder months.

 

Design Your Hardscape

 

Landscaping isn’t just about plants. Hardscapes can revive your property in winter and provide aesthetic appeal when most plants go dormant or die off for the winter.

You can create hardscapes in the form of:

  • Sidewalks
  • Pavers
  • Fountains
  • Stone walls

Don’t limit yourself when it comes to your hardscapes. They can keep your property more accessible while providing aesthetic appeal and allowing people to use your outdoor space year-round.

 

Snow Maintenance in Winter

 

Most business owners think about landscaping in the summer, but it applies to winter, too. Make sure you create a plan for snow and ice removal, so you keep your property safe and beautiful.

Your staff and customers don’t want to see dirty snow clogging your pathways. It might give visitors the impression that you have a poorly maintained property and low business quality. Proper maintenance tells them you care about your business and your patrons’ safety and making your business accessible to everyone.
