5 Tips For Dressing Up Your Commercial Entryway



The first thing potential tenants, clients, customers, and employees see when they approach your commercial building is the entryway. From plants and flowers to the walkway and steps, ensure your entryway looks its best so you can make a great first impression.

Here are 5 tips creating a beautiful entryway for your commercial building.

1. Appealing Walkway
Walkways are high-traffic areas, and while they can be high maintenance, it’s worth it to do something nice here. Consider installing pavers or stonework versus a plain concrete walkway. If you’re feeling creative, add patterns or play with colors. 

2. Retaining Walls
Retaining walls are not only great for preventing erosion and making use of sloped properties, they add beautiful curb appeal. Add seasonal plants, staircases, and unique lighting to your retaining wall to give it a personalized touch. This is also a great place to add a wheelchair ramp for your commercial entryway. 

3. Use Large Planting Containers
This is an extremely simple way to add beautiful aesthetics to your entryway. Be creative. A variety of attractive containers filled with plants and flowers will add a nice pop of color. Consider planting a small tree in the center and playing with patterns to really spice things up.
  
4. Add Seating
Adding a stone, wood, or mental bench to your commercial entryway will provide a space for visitors, employees, or tenants to sit back, relax, and enjoy your beautiful landscaping. 

5. Create Small Gardens
If you have a roundabout or island near your entryway, think about creating small, unique gardens. Add short paver or stone walkways to give visitors room to stretch their legs. A green space is an inviting space.

Get Ready For Fall Cleanup!


Fall has arrived!

The cooler weather is setting in and the landscape is turning into a colorful display of reds, yellows, and oranges. This time of year is beautiful, but it doesn't come without its challenges.

The leaves are beginning to fall, and soon the green grass will be covered with a thick blanket of dry, brown leaves. And in comes the unpleasant tasks of raking, bagging, and blowing.

Fall cleanup isn't something any of us look forward to, but it's a necessary part of maintaining a healthy landscape. Here are a few tips to help you keep your yard looking great this fall.

1. Rake 
Unraked leaves often get matted down under the snow and basically smother your grass throughout the winter. However, leaves can help insulate plants during the winter and they provide nutrients as they decompose.

2. Fertilize the Grass
Lawns love to be fed in the fall. Use a slow-release fertilizer which will allow the grass to soak up all the nutrients.

3. Weed
This often overlooked tasks is one of the best things you can do to prepare for spring.  

4. Mow Low
Give your lawn one last mow,. Drop your blade to it's lowest setting, this will help prevent disease and mulch any remaining leaves.

5. Plant Your Spring Bulbs
If you're planning ahead for a beautiful spring landscape, plant your bulbs this fall. Try early-bloomers like tulips or daffodils.
