No matter how often we’re taught not to judge a book by its cover, first impressions do matter. It’s no wonder that the European aristocrats spent a huge amount of time and money on their gardens. One huge reason why many of those gardens are still flourishing today is that the nobility called in the experts.
While you may not have a castle, whether you manage a business, a large estate, or a condominium complex – the appearance of your property can play a large role in people’s perceptions.
Benefits of Professional Landscape Design
There are plenty of reasons why hiring a professional landscape design company can make a huge difference.
1. Drives Customer Appeal
An inviting exterior makes for an inviting interior. A well-kept property shows clients that you run a successful business. It can also give customers a feeling of safety – that your business will nurture them as well as you do your property. An appealing exterior can also drive walk-in clientele or at the very least add to your business’s recall value. Well-landscaped spaces around residential complexes can help keep residents and drive property values up too.
2. Drives Employee Productivity
Green spaces are known to create an aura of positivity and tranquility. One study found that employees reported higher feelings of wellbeing when they could view trees, lawn and shrubs or flowering plants are work while another study along similar lines reports that greenery helped increase self-reported wellness by 15%, productivity by 6%, and creativity by 15% while absenteeism went down by 10% , numbers that are hard to ignore.
3. New Functional Spaces
Proper landscape design and planning can also increase the number of functional spaces. As a business owner, you can use your outdoor spaces for events and gatherings, outdoor employee training areas, or simply as outdoor recreational spaces for your employees to use while on a break.
4. Boosted Environmental Stewardship
Taking care of the environment is now more important than ever. Trees and green spaces can help reduce your business’s carbon footprint as trees act as carbon sinks while flowering shrubs can create habitats for pollinators. Depending on the size and nature of your business, you can even think of adding initiatives like the composting of kitchen waste to your firm’s green ventures.
