One of the things that commercial properties and apartment buildings (or communities) have in common is that landscape maintenance is a vital factor in drawing in customers or renters. The landscape has a big impact on the property’s curb appeal, which means a run down landscape will turn away people whereas a well-kept landscape can attract people.
One of the things you need to realize is that landscape maintenance doesn’t just concern keeping the grass trimmed and making sure there’s no trash or debris littering your property. You’ll want to enhance your landscape in order to trigger the psychological effect that the environment can have on people. For example, if a landscape is dark and covered in overgrown grass and shrubs, a person’s natural survival instinct can kick in and they’ll leave because the space doesn’t look safe. However, an attractive landscape will entice the senses.
Some of the features you should implement into your landscape include focal points that draw the eye. Your landscape’s focal points should be near entrances, exits and signs since they will be the first and last things people see.
