Does the slope of your business property warrant a retaining wall? While installing a retaining wall for your commercial landscape may seem like a burden, you will be surprised at how much this simple addition can improve the functionality and aesthetics of your outdoor space if done properly.
Retaining walls for business owners offer some of the same purposes and benefits as they do for homeowners. However, when maintaining a commercial landscape, the stakes can be even more high since your profits can often be influenced on how your customers and clients use and view your landscape. Not installing a retaining wall for a sloped commercial property could result in the ruin of your landscape, poor aesthetics and even costly erosion or flooding problems.
Whether you own a retail center, a restaurant or corporate building, the appearance of your commercial landscape can work for or against you. An unkempt or poorly designed landscape can be a quick detour for tenants, customers or even potential employees. One of the most common landscaping mishaps that we see on commercial properties is empty and neglected areas of mulch.

With no plants and flower to pop through your mulch, the area doesn’t offer any visual appeal and is likely to be full of weeds.

If you own a business or manage a commercial property, your landscape is your first chance to make a good impression. In fact, you can reap significant value by properly investing in your landscape design and maintenance. Not only does a well-maintained landscape reflect positively on your business, but it can also remove hazards and liability issues that you may have with your patrons or clients.
Commercial Landscape Maintenance – Stay On Your Toes!
Just like your residential landscape, your commercial landscape demands year-round maintenance tasks. However, commercial landscaping also involves some extra attention and care. For example, business landscapes often involve more hardscaping, seasonal flower beds, bushes and trees to maintain. In addition, you’ll need to also care for areas around property signs, sidewalks, parking lots and more. Unlike your residential property where you can afford to slack off on your lawn care efforts or put off that trimming or mowing for a few days, you don’t have as much flexibility with business landscape.
