Warmer weather is here, so it’s time to get started on your residential and commercial landscaping plans for the spring and summer. Here are some of our favorite must-have commercial landscaping trends for the warmer months.
Turn Your Roof Green
Many of today’s commercial landscaping trends center around making properties more eco-friendly and beautiful at the same time. Green roofs are roofs partially (or totally) covered with beautiful green vegetation and plants. Green roofs help to absorb excess water, reduce the amount of heat that escapes through the top of your building, and offer additional insulation.
Plants That Can Take the Heat
Is your commercial property located in an area that suffers from drought occasionally? One top commercial landscaping trend is to replace high-maintenance plants with drought resistant plants. Not only will these plants survive during hot and dry periods, but they will also use less water in general and lower your garden maintenance costs.
Placemaking is Popular
Placemaking is a very popular commercial landscaping trend that refers to transforming the outside of your landscaping into a place instead of simply a feature. Placemaking could involve a wide range of features including fountains, sculptures playgrounds, comfy seating, gorgeous plant life, and places for your employees and their families to enjoy themselves.
Think Native Plants
Last but not least, native plants are a commercial landscaping trend that have steadily gained popularity over the past few years. Since they are native to your property’s area, they are already adapted to the environment and land. They will need less maintenance and be more environmentally friendly, in addition to attracting gorgeous birds and bright butterflies. Native plants will also positively contribute to the ecosystem in your commercial landscape since they were traditionally a part of it, unlike other popular invasive species that wreak havoc.
