Springtime means that there’s a little more work to maintain your brick and mortar business. You can’t have your commercial landscape looking like a scary, overgrown, mess. One of the very first things (if not the very first thing) people will notice about your establishment is just how green and glorious your outdoor landscaping looks.
Let your prospective customers feel comfortable as they drive up to your business establishment, and do the work to prep for spring. Here are a few ways you can get started prepping for the future warm weather, and give the public an aesthetic gift:
Get the mowers on the phone
As soon as the weather is warm enough to make the grass on your property begin to grow, you need to make sure you have mowers on the way. Cutting the grass twice a week will help to keep it looking full and green.
When you let the grasses grow too long in between cutting, the grass will grow in a patchy manner. You won’t have the full look you’re seeking otherwise.
Invest in bright landscaping
Landscaping efforts will help make your organization shine among the other bland landscapes. It makes sense to invest in professional commercial landscaping to get the job done right the first time and every time.
You know you remember a business when the landscaping is on point, so be the business you wish to see. If you run a small business, it’s not a bad thing to do the work yourself. You can still get your hands dirty from time to time.
Give people a place to sit
Adding a place to sit outside of your establishment makes it more welcoming to all kinds of visitors. Though smoking is a terrible habit, seating outside of your business gives them time to finish their process.
Outside seating is also super valuable for restaurants. If you have a busy restaurant, you need a place for overflow. Your peak hours may leave people outside of the building, so make a comfortable and dry place to wait.
Clean up the parking lot
Make sure to keep up with the maintenance of your parking area. Your business can’t support all the visitors you want if no one can find a suitable place to park. Make cleaning the parking lot a daily part of operations, and make extra efforts to repair any damage done over the winter months to the pavement.
Decorate for fun times
Spring means that there are some fun holidays ahead. March brings the opportunity to decorate for St. Patrick’s Day. April brings about the chance to decorate in pastels for Easter. Decorating for the holidays is a cute way to make a connection with visitors, and spread smiles.
