Nothing beats having a barbecue in the middle of summer. Your tenants will love having an area to grill burgers and hot dogs, especially if it is an apartment complex where they would be unable to have a grill otherwise. Professional offices might find a grilling space useful for team outings in the summer.

Make Your Landscape Shine with Thoughtful Lighting

While the sun lights the way during the day, you want something that will allow people to enjoy the scenery on cloudy days and evenings as well. Consider an energy efficient lighting option so that you do not increase your monthly electric bills too much.

Combat High Water Usage with a Cistern

You need an irrigation system in place that allows you to keep trees and flowers growing healthily. However, constantly having the sprinklers running can quickly add up and is not great for the environment. By installing a cistern on your commercial property, you can easily collect rainwater, and use that to water your foliage.

Consider a Decorative Fire Pit for Function and Style

Many different variations exist for fire pits. Consider a gas pit with decorative stone and cozy seating. Numerous styles exist for these pits, so you can find one that perfectly complements the rest of your property’s aesthetic. Allow users to control gas fire pits with a timer. This also ensures that it will not stay on all night when people head home.

Could Fencing be That Finishing Touch?

A fence around your commercial property does more than just add an attractive flourish to the edges of your beautiful green space. It also adds some security. Wood or metal? Security, aesthetics, or both? Your landscape designer will help you choose a fence that flows well with your overall look.

A Water Fixture Takes Your Space to the Next Level

Ponds and fountains are calming and eye-catching features. People can gather around and enjoy the soothing sound of running water. Worried about keeping up with this substantial addition? Leave it to your landscaper who will include fountain maintenance in the regular maintenance plan.
