Nearly every commercial facility is a blend of form and function. Sometimes, you have an aesthetically pleasing property because of its design and there’s nothing you want to hide.
But in some cases, you might be challenged to use commercial landscaping elements strategically, to cover-up or mask something on your property:
How much priority does landscaping get when it comes to your property maintenance budget? It might seem like an afterthought, but it shouldn’t.
A good looking commercial landscape keeps your happy, encourages their customers to visit and can catch the eye of potential tenants.
That’s why proactive property manager should develop an overall plan for how to deal with the issue. Here are a few best practices for planning your commercial landscape with the assistance of a commercial landscaper in PA & NJ:
Your outdoor spaces are an important, if unsung, function of your business.
Your outdoor space is where your employees will congregate when they are on break, and is the first impression anyone will get of you when they come to visit.
While style is vital, function is also important, and these aspects merge together into either a successful outdoor space or an unsuccessful one. Here are some tips for creating functional outdoor spaces through commercial landscaping in PA & NJ.
When it comes to commercial landscape design in PA, there are certain “best practices” that must be followed.
One way to make sure these practices are adhered to is through project management, which ensures every landscaping job is thoroughly planned, coordinated and controlled from its commencement to its completion.
If you’re the owner or manager of a commercial property, you’ve almost certainly had your fair share of near-panic attack moments when the dreaded electric bill has arrived. That’s because aside from HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), commercial landscape lighting is far and away the biggest user of energy in your industry. So without some sort of energy efficiency solution, the prices you’re paying in that department are likely to stay more or less the same. And that’s where LED lighting comes in.
For years, LED lighting has gotten something of a bad rap, and to a large degree, that’s had a lot to do with the initial cash outlay of the bulbs themselves. LED bulbs are not cheap, especially when you compare their price tags to those of the filament or florescent bulbs your property probably uses now.
If you ask a real estate agent what your home needs to sell, chances are you’ll get a two-word answer: Curb appeal.
When the National Association of Realtors surveyed its members last year, 99 percent said they thought curb appeal was important for attracting buyers.
And 96 percent of Realtors say they suggest sellers improve their home’s curb appeal before putting the property up for sale.
If you’re one of those sellers, here are a few real estate landscape construction ideas to help boost your home’s resale potential.
Now that the winter season has come to an end and the blooming months of spring are finally upon us, commercial property managers throughout Pennsylvania are prepping for an annual tradition that the Realty Landscaping team has been dutifully observing for years: Namely, landscape maintenance in PA.
If you’re a property manager yourself, it probably hasn’t escaped your attention that the start of the spring season is an ideal time to get the landscape surrounding the commercial property you’re responsible for back in top working order. Plants and shrubbery that have been dormant for months will soon be flowering back to life. If it isn’t already, the weather will soon be ideal for working in the great outdoors. And perhaps most importantly, the malnourished landscape that’s been neglected all winter is finally prepared to shine.
If you’re in charge of a mid-size or large commercial property, you’ve probably run into your fair share of pushback if you’ve ever tried to argue for the importance—or even the necessity—of a lush landscape project. Perhaps the money counters at your firm have tried to convince you of the non-necessity of a landscape that does more than simply meet the minimal requirements.
Or perhaps you’re the one who isn’t quite sold on the idea of living greenery as a wise investment. Maybe you’re not yet convinced, for instance, that commercial landscape design can do much more than simply add a touch of required greenery to an otherwise bland, commercial landscape.
Ah, the joys of a beautiful, well maintained front lawn. If you live in the suburban stretches of Bucks or Montgomery counties, there’s a good chance your property includes a lawn. Of course, whether that lawn is something of which you can be duly proud is another matter altogether. Landscape maintenance in Philadelphia—keeping its grass an ideally bright shade of green, with a thick and healthy appearance and a shining luster—is not always an easy task.
In fact, so difficult can the chore of maintaining a beautifully manicured lawn sometimes be that we’re often asked if there’s some magic bullet that, when added to a regular lawn care regimen, might result in a lawn straight off the pages of a gardening magazine.
If you were expecting the winter of 2017 to be easy, think again. Weather experts say we’re in for a miserable few months.
“Old Man Winter returns!” proclaims the Farmer’s Almanac, which predicts “exceptionally cold, if not downright frigid weather” in much of the country this year.
“Frequent snow to blast Northeast,” warns Accuweather.
But even if these predictions don’t come true, living in Pennsylvania means at least some snow will fall between now and March (or even April).
And if you’re a business owner, that means you’ll need someone to clear that snow. Here are a few things you should look for when hiring someone to do commercial snow removal in PA.
