The winter has come and almost gone. Spring is sure to be here sooner than later. It’s time to get your landscaping in order, especially if you’ve neglected things this winter. Luckily, that’s what we’re here for. At Huston Landscaping, we’re here to help you design the commercial landscape of your dreams in 2018.
With that in mind, here are a few tips, tricks, and trends to lookout for this year:
- Outdoor Functionality
Each and every year, more companies are focusing on giving employees access to outdoor spaces designed for functionality. Most corporate areas have tons of unused space, especially outdoor.
If you have a rooftop, it’s not too tough to turn the space into a roof garden filled with unique landscaping elements and green space. Outdoor sitting areas are also very popular. Every employee needs a wireless area throughout the day and many commercial landscaping projects are taking this into account.
Speaking of making use of unused spaces, place-making does just that. Many commercial landscapes feature vacant spaces between buildings or structures. Instead of letting these spaces go to waste, many companies are incorporating place-making.
Place-making is the art of using these spaces to create sitting areas filled with fountains, sculptures, and more. Many times these spaces can change a corporate, commercial space into something uplifting and relaxing.
- Native Plants
In many a roof garden or sitting area, it’s easy to incorporate native plants and flowers into these spaces. At Huston Contracting, this is one of our specialties. We can help you add plants to all your commercial landscaping spaces in Olathe, Kansas.
- Energy Efficiency
Green commercial landscaping has become a priority for many a business. Most companies have a green initiative in place to help them add plants, landscaping, and more. Occasionally, these plans include increasing the efficiency of a space with solar panels and more.
- Concrete Designs
Gone are the days of just black and grey concrete and asphalt. While these are still used, many commercial landscapes also incorporate concrete that features different designs and colors. This is especially true in entrance ways and other areas with a lot of foot traffic.
If your commercial landscape could use a little sprucing, but you don’t have many green spaces options – we suggest stained concrete. This creates a unique contrast and can look absolutely stunning when installed properly.
- Responsive Irrigation
At Huston Contracting, we always recommend commercial landscaping includes responsive irrigation. Often, commercial spaces are vast and hard to take care of. With responsive irrigation systems, you can stay on top of watering the green spaces without breaking the bank and wasting resources.
These systems often only provide irrigation when it is totally necessary. If Mother Nature is doing her job, then the system simply conserves resources. If responsive irrigation is what your commercial landscaping in Olathe needs, we’re here to help.
