In the fast-paced, competitive world of business, a well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing outdoor environment can’t be underestimated. Commercial property services for office buildings, retail centres, and industrial complexes are one of our specialities here at Mirage Landscaping. We strive to help business owners create a positive first impression for clients, and other benefits include enhanced employee well-being and improved functionality of your outdoor space.
A beautiful outdoor environment can draw customers in and keep them coming back. Here are seven reasons why commercial property services are crucial for your business.
- First impressions are incredibly important for businesses. They help us decide who we can trust, what that business may mean to us and ultimately, whether we respect them. An appealing landscape design immediately captures the attention of passersby, and the addition of vibrant flowers, lush greenery, and neatly trimmed shrubs conveys a sense of care and professionalism and signals to potential customers that your business pays attention to detail and takes pride in its appearance.
- A well-designed commercial landscape creates a welcoming atmosphere that entices customers to enter your premises. Outdoor seating areas, well-placed pathways, and welcoming entrances invite customers to stay awhile and explore further. Commercial landscaping services that focus on the visitor evoke positive emotions and induce a sense of relaxation and enjoyment, making customers more likely to engage with your business again and again.
- Businesses spend a lot of time carefully cultivating their brand, which commercial landscaping services can help support. A neglected or unkempt landscape can raise doubts about the quality and care that your business invests in its products or services, damage your brand image, and ruin all the hard work you have put into it.
- To add on to the importance of brand image, commercial landscaping services can also act as a visual marketing tool that will increase your chance of word-of-mouth marketing. Customers are more likely to take notice of a business with an eye-catching landscape, which they then share on social media. This results in free advertising for you. Word-of-mouth recommendations and online reviews have a significant impact on attracting new customers. Conversely, a poorly maintained outdoor space may result in negative reviews and drive potential customers away.
- It is challenging to provide an exact figure or percentage as to the value of commercial landscaping services regarding return on investment, however various studies and industry experts suggest that well-executed commercial landscaping can increase property values by anywhere from 5% to 20%. Curb appeal is essential for real estate valuation, which includes the size and condition of the property, the quality of the landscaping and its location. A well-maintained landscape reflects well on the overall image and perception of the property and its maintenance, which then commands higher prices.
- Commercial property services also help improve the overall safety of your property. Adequate lighting is essential, especially during nighttime hours. Properly placed and maintained lighting fixtures deter potential criminals while also creating a welcoming atmosphere. In the winter, Mirage’s expert snow removal services provide maintenance of parking lots and pathways, which reduces your chances of liability should someone slip and fall while visiting your business.
- Great commercial landscaping is also good for your employees, promoting a healthy work/life balance and improved employee morale. This leads to increased productivity and job satisfaction and higher retention rates, all of which are good for your business.
