Incorporating native grass areas into your commercial projects is a simple way to help your building blend into the natural landscape. It’s also an effective way to reduce long-term maintenance and upkeep costs.
Native grasses require considerably less pesticide, herbicide, and fertilizer to maintain. They also require less water as the grasses growing within them are adapted to the environment and capable of sustaining themselves even in the driest of droughts.
These benefits come together to create a landscape that requires very little mowing, and minimal maintenance to keep everything healthy and looking beautiful. Over the long-term, this translates into a lower cost of ownership that your clients will appreciate as it won’t be a drag on their bottom line.
If there are any drawbacks to native grass areas, it’s that they take time to grow. Depending on water and weather, this can be upwards of a year before they fill in. However, once that initial growing period is complete, the long-term benefits will be well worth the wait.
