There are numerous benefits in having quality landscape at a business or commercial property. Research shows that beautiful landscaping can increase property value by at least 14%. It also aids in promoting new business by reflecting the image of the company through plant material, trees, and hardscaping. Potential customers passing by will be much more likely to step inside the doors of a commercial building that is aesthetically pleasing.
Research has proven that employees tend to thrive when interacting with nature. This interaction could simply occur by the employee having a view of trees or outdoor spaces that contain plants. Also, customers and employees alike would benefit in having access to a space outdoors, with a sitting area and beautiful plants and trees, where they can take a moment to relax. This leads to greater productivity in the office as well as employees and clients who carry less stress.
Quality and well-maintained landscapes have also shown to be environmentally beneficial. Green spaces can filter pollution and dust from the air. A landscape can also lower temperatures and provide shade in urban areas. Erosion is an issue in most areas. A good landscape can help reduce erosion of soil into waterways. The U.S. Department of Energy has stated that landscaping around a building can influence its micro-climate by 25 degrees. This means business owners can save on heating and cooling costs. Therefore, one can see that commercial landscape has quite an impact on conservation.
