3 Reasons To Hire A Landscape Designer For Your New Commercial Property

Jose Wheeler

When you build a new building for your business, you will have space around your building that you need to fill. You want it to complement your building and to make sure that the property will make a good first impression. You can try to come up with ideas to fill up all that space on your own, or you can go to the professionals and hire a landscape designer. Hiring a landscape designer is a good idea for a lot of reasons. 

Efficient Use of Space

Working with a landscape designer will be a good idea for your business because they will be able to make efficient use of the space you have available. The designer will come out to your new building to see your property and do all kinds of measurements to see exactly how much space they are working with and where that space lies. Without that knowledge, the designer won't be able to create something that will fit into that space well, making the most of the area.  

Landscaping Methods

Landscape designers are going to be familiar with the various methods of landscaping. Those methods include xeriscaping, green landscaping, and landscaping for drought resistance. Each method has its own principles that must be followed for it to be called that method. For example, for a landscape to be thought of as xeriscaped, it has to be arranged so that it requires little to no additional irrigation. It also involves careful plant selection, generally choosing plants that are native to the area because they are going to thrive best in the local climate, and making sure that the plants are placed in the best spots for both the plant's health and the aesthetic. 


Energy bills can be outrageous, especially your cooling bills if your building is going to get a lot of sun. A landscape designer can create a plan to ensure that your structure gets some shade, which will help lower your utility bills. This may be a slightly more long-term plan since trees aren't going to grow overnight, but your landscape designer can get some older trees and have them transplanted, giving you some immediate shade.

When you build a new building for your business, you want to make sure it looks impressive and attractive. Having space around your property that isn't finished or doesn't look good can give new clients the wrong idea about your business. Hire a landscape designer to help you out.

About Me
Technology Makes Landscaping Easier Than Ever

When I was young, I loved helping my mother in the garden. Our yard was filled with plants and flowers that she kept in immaculate condition. Once I was an adult and bought my first home, I learned that there was much more to landscaping a yard than I ever imagined! After a little trial and error planting a few flowers in my yard that died quickly, I realized the technology that is available to aspiring gardeners makes trial and error a thing of the past. After I found out what my "hardiness zone" was, I realized I was planting flowers made for much cooler climates, and I played around with software that let me design my yard very easily! I learned a lot throughout the experience, so I thought I would share my tips with everyone who needs them. Come back often to check out my new tips!
