As a Utah business owner you worry about a lot of things, but should professional landscaping be one of them?

You could try to do your landscaping yourself, but keep reading to find out three reasons why hiring experienced professionals makes all the difference. 

It’s no secret that businesses with neat, landscaped yards attract more customers than their unkempt counterparts. One recent survey found that 74% of customers preferred to gather in front of businesses with fresh plants, trees and greenery than those without. That’s a pretty staggering statistic if you’re a new business owner or if you’re just looking to attract new customers to your pre-existing business. It’s clear that landscaping the outside of your business may be almost as important as organizing and decorating the inside, so get professional help and don’t leave your landscaping to chance. 

As a business owner, you’ve got a lot to do. By hiring a professional landscaping service you can cross something off your own list in a big way. You no longer have to worry about pulling weeds, mowing the lawn, or planting the right flowers to attract customers, there’s finally someone to do that for you. For added ease consider establishing a monthly schedule with your landscapers so you’ll never have to worry about when the next time your lawn will be mowed, you’ll already know. Spend your time doing those things that only you can do for your business, and let another professional take care of your landscaping. 

A well cultivated and maintained outdoor space provides another area for your employees to enjoy and relax during breaks or before and after work. A recent study conducted by the University of Exeter found that the more access employees had to “green” items like plants, grass, and outdoor spaces the happier they felt. In fact, the offices involved in the study reported a 40% increase in employee environmental satisfaction and a 15% increase in productivity after implementing more greenery into their indoor and outdoor spaces. 

The Bottom Line

It’s clear that landscaping is an important, yet often overlooked, facet of office design that can affect customer satisfaction, sales, and employee satisfaction. Although you could attempt to landscape your business yard yourself, hiring a professional with know-how and experience ensures you’ll end up with a beautiful outdoor space without wasting any of your precious time.

Keep reading to find out what five services your property maintenance company should be providing to you all year long. 


1. Landscape Maintenance Services

These are the basic landscaping services typically associated with commercial property maintenance, namely:


2. Landscape Design Services

Landscape design services are often overlooked; however, they are at the core of any commercial landscape service. Your maintenance provider should be able to understand the design process for commercial properties and develop seasonal flower bed designs, rock garden designs, water feature designs, and many other services to enhance the appearance of your commercial and retail properties. Other landscape design services include the design of specific outdoor elements such as patios, gazebos, play areas, and other outdoor focal points.


3. Landscape Construction Services

Once you have the design in place, you need someone who is able to bring that vision to life. Your maintenance provider should have the experience and know-how to be able to turn your grass lawn into the oasis of your dreams. Good landscape design needs flower beds constructed, retaining walls built, water features put into place, and much more. A good commercial maintenance company needs to also be aware of potential issues such as drainage, irrigation, erosion control, and traffic patterns of both people and vehicles to assure that the construction is completed with good results.


4. Irrigation Services

One of the most important aspects of handling landscapes for maintaining commercial properties in the dry, Utah climate is making sure that the grass, flowers, plants and trees that you just invested in stay vibrant and lush. This will most likely involve the design and installation of an irrigation system. Your irrigation system needs to be carefully designed and constructed to meet the needs of your landscaping, as well as maintained, winterized, and repaired when needed. 


5. Snow Removal Services

The need for a commercial property maintenance company doesn’t go away when winter arrives, you also need a plan in place for when the weather gets cold and snowy. De-icing and snow removal services for your parking lots, sidewalks, and other outdoor areas will be essential to keep your employees and customers safe, and your landscaping needs to be prepared for the winter months through pruning, tree wrapping, deep root watering, and litter and debris clean up.

Water features for your home are not only beautiful, but they can improve your mental health as well. 

Keep reading to find out how implementing a water feature in your space could benefit you. 

Understanding the Research

A wealth of research has been conducted on the effects water features have on mental health.  One recent study has found that for city dwellers who had limited access to natural sounds and spaces, their mental health improved substantially when they had access to water features. In response to this study, doctors around the world are now making “green prescriptions,” in which they prescribe patients time in natural spaces with flowing water in lieu of medication. 

Stress can be a big contributing factor to poor mental health. You may have heard that the sound of running water can help to relieve stress, but is this actually true? A study conducted by the University of Sussex suggests that it actually is. The study found that when humans listen to natural sounds like running water it’s actually relaxing and stress relieving. This is because the sound of moving water can calm your fight-or-flight response, and help your autonomic nervous system to rest. 

Water Features for Your Home

Now that we’ve discussed the research behind the mental health benefits of water features, you may be interested in implementing one in your own yard. There are a number of beautiful ways and practical ways you can do this, including:

Accent boulders can be a beautiful addition to any yard design. But how can you utilize them properly? 

Keep reading to find out how you can use boulders to improve your home’s landscape design. 

Add to Your Front Entrance

Consider accentuating the path leading up to your front door with a few strategically placed boulders, which will help to make your front door the focal point of your home. If your front door is centered in your home you can mimic that symmetry with the boulders, or opt for an interesting asymmetrical look. 

Create Additional Seating

Boulders can not only be decorative, but functional as well. Add boulders around your firepit or in corners of your yard to create additional seating for yourself and guests. Unlike wooden or plastic seating options, boulders are sure to withstand the test of time and provide you with seating for years to come.  

Add to a Vignette 

An outdoor vignette combines a variety of plants and rocks of various textures in order to create a compelling image. By adding a boulder to a vignette you’re giving it additional height, texture, dimension, and color. To create a vignette, start with your boulder and begin to surround it with a variety of plants, flowers, and rocks of varying shapes and sizes. You’ll know the vignette is done when the scene is pleasing to the eye without looking bare or cluttered.

Create a Centerpiece 

An unusually shaped boulder can function as a natural work of art. Surround your accent boulder with plants, flowers, and smaller rocks of your choice to fill any additional space around the boulder, and enjoy your natural sculpture. 

Light Your Boulder at Night

Why should you only be able to enjoy your landscaping during the day? Consider adding night-time lights to your yard in order to light up your boulder whether it’s part of a vignette or functions as seating or a centerpiece. This way you’ll be able to appreciate and enjoy the work you’ve put into your yard no matter the time of day. 

Take into Consideration

When landscaping with boulders, there are some important things to keep in mind. Make sure you take into consideration:
