Continue reading to learn more about how you can create a beautiful and functional landscape that will appeal to employees and clients alike.

1. Bringing the Indoors, Outdoors

More and more people are learning the importance of being outdoors. Creating an outdoor space where people can "just be" to relax and enjoy nature is essential.

How do you do that? Of course, many strategies are depending on the commercial industry you are in. As a rule of thumb, offering seating, beautiful brick walkways, and pathways is a start.

You want a setting that is both beautiful and comfortable. You want it to be a place where want to be and gather together. Tips to make the most of the indoor, outdoor experience is to include water features, statues, pops of colour, and ornamental plants.

2. Choose Functional Plants

You do not want plants that are just there. You want plants that serve a purpose. Plants, such as citronella, lavender, and mint, serve as natural bug repellents.

Who wants to sit outside and be eaten by bugs anyway?

While the fragrances of plants may deter bugs, the fragrances of these kinds of plants are typically pleasing to humans.

3. Green Roofs

The commercial industry is moving towards remedying its carbon footprint through sustainability initiatives. One example of a green initiative is the green roof.

The green roof serves many purposes. The green roof absorbs water and spares water from running off. The green roof also functions as a natural means of insulation that will save you money in the long run.

4. Landscapes That Require Low Maintenance

Choosing plants that are drought-tolerant or native to your locality will help you to maintain your landscape at a low cost. You will need less maintenance.

Not to mention, minimalism is aesthetically pleasing.

5. Advanced Irrigation Systems

While this trend may not be obvious, choosing an advanced irrigation system will help maintain the health of the plants.

By choosing a quality irrigation system, you will be reducing costs for the manpower that will be needed to ensure your plants are well hydrated.
