Landscaping and Brand Image - What Is Your Curb Appeal Saying to Potential Customers?

Curb appeal is important for any business. Whether you have an apartment complex, office building or a public institution, you want to convey the right image to everyone driving by.

You don’t want people to steer clear of your organization because your landscape has fallen into a state of disarray. Consider what an outsider would think of your building just from looking at the surrounding property. Is it eye-catching? Is it representative of your business standards?

Following are some questions to consider when it comes to your office’s curb appeal.

What is Our “Personality”?

Many business owners have difficulty figuring out what kind of aesthetic they should go with for their property’s landscape. An easy place to start is with your company culture. A whimsical company may consider something outside the box and colorful. A more traditional firm might go for something clean cut and neutral. Whatever your culture, understand that a messy, unstructured landscape might inadvertently convey a lack of quality control to others.

Have You Considered Outdoor Meeting Areas?

Some businesses need to be straightforward and conduct all business inside. However, you should think about whether your company could benefit from some outdoor seating areas. Office buildings can promote a renewing lunch break for their employees by including some tables amongst shaded foliage. Corporate properties can welcome clients and guests with meeting spots on patios and in courtyards. Some other amenities to consider include umbrellas for shade and decorative fountains.

Does Your Landscape Work With or Against Signage?

While a properly maintained landscape is important, it is also vital that potential customers are able to see your business’s sign. It is possible to find plants that work well to complement any signage. Placing a sign in a flower bed delivers a bright and vibrant first impression for your company. Remember, you want the landscaping around your sign to be well maintained and not overgrown.

What’s Good for the Entire Year?

You don’t want the front of your property to only be attractive for half the year. You want something that is going to be manageable all year round. This means employing the proper maintenance practices for the season you’re in. For example, in cold weather, ensuring all your walkways are kept free of ice. A reliable landscape provider will offer a maintenance schedule that meets your needs in every season.
Every square foot of your property is a chance to create a positive impression for your business.

5 Commercial Landscape Trends for 2017

2017 presents an opportunity to reflect on your business and see where you can improve. One area you don't want to overlook is your landscape. Think about the last time you had some maintenance done on the property.

Here are a few trends poised to be very popular in the coming year. See if any of these trends spark your interest:

1. Bold
With so many landscaping options available these days, there is no reason to settle for the ordinary. Your commercial lawn can make a statement. Fully express what your company is all about while conveying overall brand image. Feel free to push the boundaries and go for something that is incredibly distinctive. When patrons look back on their time at your property, they are going to remember it.

2. Bright
In the past few years, bright colors have dominated landscaping conversations. One trend that is certain to make a splash in 2017 is the frequent decision to pair opposite colors. In the past, commercial managers would stick with colors that were fairly close together, such as red and pink. Now, commercial landscape owners are discovering the advantages of pairing colors that are complimentary, such as yellow and purple.

3. Contemporary
With many companies pushing the boundaries of technology and innovation, the same philosophy is being applied to landscapes. Contemporary designs include stacked layers and clean lines. Steel and glass are more frequently used in construction. This makes properties look right at home in the 21st century.

4. Versatile
Versatility is one of the most important aspects a landscape can have. It is great if you can effortlessly transform your commercial lawn into a quiet retreat during the fall, and a cheerful hosting space during the spring and summer. Perhaps your green space furnishings include shade and umbrellas during hotter months, and attractive patio heaters during cold months.

Likewise, your landscaping doesn't have to look barren in winter. A landscape maintenance provider understands which plants will stay attractive year-round. And potted plants can easily be moved or changed out temporarily to meet current needs.

5. Eco-Friendly
Commercial property owners look for ways to reduce impact on the environment. Consider opting for LED outdoor lighting or installing a newer, more efficient irrigation system. Going green also means creating a landscape that is well-suited for wildlife so that birds and other innocuous critters maintain a natural habitat, without feeling like pests.


These trends can be a fantastic jumping off point if you are ready for professional landscape design. Yellowstone Landscape can help manage and maintain your commercial landscape space. Give our expert team a call at 407.512.5714 to get started.
