Perhaps you’re bringing home a date or inviting your boss over for dinner. Because this is a place where we can fully let our guards down and be in our element, the house reflects who we are as a person. Big house? Upper middle class. A tiny house? Minimalist. Pets everywhere? Nurturing. No signs of dust? They’re all about cleanliness.
The same goes for commercial properties. The appearance of a retail store, for example, attracts customers depending on the design. If the store is designed with pastel colors, it will most probably attract women of a younger age range.
Because the first thing clients see is the front lawn, this sets the tone for their judgment whether the company should be trustworthy. Lawn and landscape companies understand this. A well-cared lawn tells clients that the property is maintained and valued and that they go the extra mile to make a pleasant experience for the patrons.
Here are ways to create a good and lasting first impression through the lawn:
A well-planned landscape will show attention to detail. Landscaping a lawn should be properly planned and researched to ensure the survival of plants. When designing, think long-term. Is the plan sustainable? How much care and maintenance are needed? Which area does the sun face at different times of the day?
Familiarizing yourself with the plants can also spare it from wilting. How much sun does a plant need? How often should it be watered? Should it be potted or not? These pieces of information will help you decide where to put the plants and how to take care of them.
The lawn needs constant care because plants are continuously growing. To keep them healthy, they need to be watered and fed. Weeds should be taken out to avoid affecting your plants’ growth. The grass should be cut to make the whole area look cleaner and more pristine. Here are a few lawn care tips:
- The grass is greener where you don’t cut it too short. The ideal height of the grass is 2 Â½ inches.
- Remove weeds from the roots.
- Thoroughly watering the lawn once a week is better than haphazard watering every day.
Having a well-maintained lawn reflects how much the property is being taken care of. This also shows consistency because maintaining a lawn can be an everyday job.
Walkways add some pizzazz to the lawn. The add a little life to a plain green landscape. Ornamental plants can be lined up to lead clients to the entrance. Lighting can also be added to avoid tripping and falling during nighttime, and light can also guide clients to where they are headed.
Above all, walkways keep feet off the grass. They avoid untoward accidents like stepping on a precious plant or dipping white shoes in the mud.
A pathway gives a welcoming vibe to the property, enticing people to come over and check out the entire place. It will also give the feeling that you care enough for clients.
If you have a bigger area, set up some garden chairs and patio furniture for a place to relax in after a meal. During summertime, the best outdoor misting fan will solve the heat. Before you know it, it could be your favorite place to chat with guests and spend quiet times by yourself as well.
It’s hard not to judge a book by its cover. Sometimes, maintaining a pretty cover can yield good results. What matters-still-is that what’s inside reflects the beauty of the outside.
