Commercial Landscaping Trends for Your Business

At Landcrafters, we pride ourselves on creating beautiful landscape designs for our clients, crafting meticulous maintenance plans, and designing one-of-a-kind spaces that are stunning, efficient, and intentionally crafted to help your business or commercial space grow.

And while a lot of the motivation for landscaped spaces comes from years of experience, a passion for landscaping, and a whole lot of creativity, it also derives from a painstaking process of staying up to date on the latest, most modern, and hottest trends in the landscaping and commercial worlds.

In other words, we bring a lot of skill, talent, and hard work to our commercial clients, but we’re always doing everything in our power to ensure the design, maintenance, and plans we’re enacting in your landscape are as on-point with the latest trends as possible.

That’s why we’re presenting you with this go-to guide you can’t miss—the 2020 Trends for Commercial Landscapes.

Whether you know it or not, how your commercial landscape looks affects your business.

It determines how your employees feel about their place of work (which influences the way they work), it draws in or turns away potential clients, it keeps tenants and residents as incumbents or forces them to look elsewhere, and of course, it reflects how you, as a business, feel about your space, your employees, and the people who see your property.

It’s probably easy to see how your commercial landscape matters, right? By making the effort to keep your commercial landscaping looking beautiful, tidy, and modern, you show the world that you care about their perception, how they feel about you, and about putting your best foot forward.

If your landscape could use a 2020 tune-up, you’re in the right place.

We’ve compiled a list of the hottest trends happening right now in commercial spaces—and best of all, should anything strike your fancy (and something should!), we’re able to implement all of these changes for you ASAP.

Without further ado, lets’ dive into the hottest trends for your commercial landscape this year!

Blur the Lines Between Outdoor & Indoor Space

Whoever taught you that there’s a hard line between outdoor space and indoor space clearly doesn’t know what’s hot and what’s not in modern landscaping. This year, it’s all about blurring the line between indoor and outdoor by meshing the two and either taking the vibrant outdoors inside your commercial space or taking the indoor comforts to the outdoors ASAP—or, even better, a fun combination of the two.

This idea isn’t as complicated as it sounds. Creating lively landscape inside your space is easy, uncomplicated, and honestly, pretty fun—consider ideas like adding large planters to your indoor space, vertical flowering walls, and pops of indoor colors using Florida-friendly plants, vines, and flowers.

When it comes to bringing the comforts of the inside to an outdoor space, well, that’s one of our favorite things to do. Consider your employees and your customers when you’re making this change. Add in fun extras like gathering spots, green spaces, dining areas, Zen gardens, fire-pit areas, rose gardens, outdoor patios, and more. It’s not as complicated as you might think to bring indoor luxury to the great outdoors!

Color is King—Fun Foliage Rules

There’s no getting around it, foliage that’s vibrant, exciting, and beautiful is always going to be in—and we’re never going to argue with it. Beautiful, colorful foliage is a trend that will likely never die and we’re more than here for it.

A splash of color in your commercial landscape can draw your clients, customers, and employees’ eyes to your space ASAP—further, it can help keep people interested in your landscape if you thoughtfully integrate colors that help with the fluidity of your space.

2020 is all about texture, color, and fun colors—so wave goodbye the days of flat, boring, and dull foliage (seriously, wave goodbye to dull colors forever). There are plenty of fun Florida-friendly plants and flowers that you can include in your space. (Don’t forget Florida-friendly trees and shrubs, too!)

Low-Key (But Regular) Maintenance for High-Key Rewards

One of the biggest trends happening right now in commercial landscaping is designing and integrating landscaping plans that look intricate but require very low-key maintenance.

We’re masters of creating stunning landscapes that feel luxurious without breaking the bank when it comes to implanting maintenance. By implanting native and Florida-friendly plants, including dual-purpose features, and considering your bottom line, we can help you design a landscape that’s both beautiful and budget-friendly.

Need help with keeping up with your regular, low-key maintenance? We’ve got your back. We can even help you with cutting maintenance costs from the get-go—AKA before we even start designing your landscape.

Impressive Entrances & Welcoming Areas

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again (and again and again), your commercial landscape’s entrance and welcoming area is your company’s handshake—it’s your first impression, it says a lot about you, and it matters more than you could possibly think.

Creating an impressive, beautiful, and well-maintained entrance to your business is always going to be a trend because it’s always going to matter.

Integrating a well-designed, warm, and open welcoming area into your building’s entranceway is going to work wonders for the way people feel about your commercial space. Consider adding in chairs, pops of beautiful flowers, a beautifully lined (and well-maintained) sidewalk), water features, trellising vines, palm trees, and more! Feel free to get creative, just make sure it’s tidy, compelling, and vibrant.

Not sure where to start when it comes to your entranceway? Don’t sweat it. We’re first impression pros and can help you design and implement and entranceway that’s bound to impress!

Switching it Up Seasonally Pays Off

Never underestimate the power of switching things up regularly. When it comes to commercial spaces, it’s easy for landscaping features to become dull or boring (especially when clients, potential customers, and employees see them day in and day out.

Making small, seasonal changes is a huge commercial landscaping trend because it helps to add some excitement into your landscaping elements without breaking the bank, requiring a ton of maintenance, and without altering your overall design.When it comes to your commercial space, your landscape matters—there’s no way around that fact. A well-designed, thoughtful, interesting, and tidy commercial landscape is going to retain customers, draw in new clients, keep your employees happy, act as a way to reign in incumbent tenants, keeps your property marketable, and overall, alter the mood of everyone who walks through your doors, passes your property or does business with you.

In other words, when it comes to commercial landscaping, there’s no room to mess around. That’s why you should do everything in your power to ensure that your landscape is in tip-top shape at all times.
