Improving Commercial Property Values through Landscaping

When it comes to taking care of commercial properties, property owners, and managers put much focus on the maintenance of the buildings that they are in charge of. Maintenance of buildings is important, but it’s also essential not to overlook the grounds of your property. Doing so could make a negative impression on customers, tenants, visitors, and potential buyers. Landscaping can go a long way in increasing the value of your commercial property– think curb appeal!

Landscaping Tips to Increase Commercial Property Value

Here are a few helpful tips to improve the value of your commercial property with landscaping.

Keep It Green: Improving the landscaping of your commercial property does not have to involve major complicated tasks. The best way to enhance the curb appeal of your property, and increase its value, is to make sure that any grass lawn area is at its greenest. Keep in mind that this does not mean that your maintenance crew needs to wait for weeds to pop up. All that is required is regular mowing, aerating, fertilizing, watering, edging, and waste management.

Add Variety: Green grass will look great and will improve property value especially if watered efficiently and to a budget (using the correct amount of water and when to apply it). However, you need more to make your grounds look lively and appealing if you want to give your commercial property value a boost. Add variety to your landscaping with trees, flowers, and plants. Adding color to your landscaping will make your property more inviting and do wonders to increase its market value. Choosing the correct plant for the right place based upon its horticultural needs and mature size will lower maintenance costs while improving curb appeal.

Create an Outdoor Seating Area: If your commercial property does not already have an outdoor common area, you should consider creating one. Gazebos, patios, and other seating areas may be a good investment, as they can recoup more than the amount you spent to have them installed. Outdoor areas that have added ornamental or functional features recover significantly more than their initial investments. A water feature, dining area, or pergola is sure to increase your property value, and impress customers, tenants and visitors alike.

If you are looking to improve the value of your commercial property, you should consider investing on features and enhancements on your landscaping. Keeping the outdoor area of your commercial property clean, well maintained and appealing will go a long way in boosting its curb appeal and its market value.
