Seasonal Color plantings can improve a commercial property's curb appealWhen’s the last time you took a stroll out to the front of your commercial property and really took a good look?

Try it.

But pretend you’re a potential tenant or a customer pondering your business. Does your property pack an impressive punch? Do you say, “Wow?” Or “Whoa?”

Many commercial property owners and managers underestimate the power of good commercial landscaping with an emphasis on curb appeal.

Your grass may be tidy, your shrubs and trees nicely trimmed. But if things look a bit blah, look to landscape enhancements to add the extra zip.

An impressive front facade and entrance shows customers, clients and tenants you care about your property — and them.

Let’s take a look at three commercial landscape enhancements to boost your property’s curb appeal.

Large Planters

large planters are a commercial landscape enhancement with instant impactWhen we say large, we mean really large — at least 3 feet by 3 feet. Oversized planters filled with trees, stunning perennials and seasonal annuals make a powerful impact, both for pedestrians walking past and passersby who see them from a distance.

Have some fun with this. If your property is a restaurant, consider filling your pots with edibles — maybe a fig tree under-planted with glossy, fragrant basil. Dress them up with twinkling white lights for the holidays.

Expect to spend a few hundred dollars for these immense planters, especially if you want to leave them out during cold Northeast winters.

Entrances, walkways and common areas are perfect spots for this landscape enhancement.

Planting Beds

planting beds add color, texture and even movement Don’t underestimate the impact of well-planned planting beds on your commercial property. Plants, flowers and grasses add color, texture and even movement.

Up close, customers can take in the fragrance and beauty. From afar, well-planned beds are eye-catching and prove you care about your property’s appearance.

One thing to note: you’ll likely need more plants than you think, to make an impact.

Five fountain grass plants are fine for next to your front porch at home. But for your commercial property, you may want 500 to make a stunning, graceful impact, even from a distance.

Planting beds don’t have to be high maintenance. Here in New York and Connecticut, purple coneflower, Queen Anne’s lace and northeastern aster are so hardy, you see them growing wild, tended only by Mother Nature.

Plant an expansive bed of these beauties and your customers, clients and tenants will be treated to a spectacular swath of purple, pink and white. And you’ll be treated to an enchanting enhancement that practically takes care of itself.

Outdoor Holiday Decorations And Lighting

outdoor holiday decorations and lighting are an excellent marketing tool for commercial propertiesWhen done right — and done early — festive lights and holiday decor offers more than just stunning curb appeal. It’s a great marketing tool. When you dress up your commercial property for the seasons and holidays, customers notice — and remember.

Festive decor draws people in and brings them back. You’re not just offering twinkling lights and pretty displays — you’re creating goodwill.

Holiday decor can be as simple as filling those giant planters we talked about earlier with seasonal fillers — move them into winter with pretty birch branches, boughs of greenery and twinkling lights for the holidays.

Or take advantage of the dazzling technology of RGB lighting displays. It stands for red, green and blue, and these three colors combined, when varied in intensity, have the ability to produce millions of different colors. That means stupendous light shows.

There’s no better attention-getter on a dark winter evening.
