Key Factors to Consider When Creating Your Commercial Landscape Design

Looking to undertake a commercial landscaping project? From improving the aesthetics and market value of commercial properties to minimising the detrimental effects of stormwater run-off to promote public health and welfare, there are several reasons why landscaping is essential for any commercial development.

The successful implementation of any landscaping project starts with creating a proper landscaping design. There are several factors to consider in order to come up with the perfect design for your landscape. 

Here are a few key considerations for creating your commercial landscape design. 

Landscaping Ordinances

Based on the location of your commercial property, there are landscaping ordinances that apply to your development. Landscaping ordinances are the local development standards that must be complied with when planning your landscaping job. 

Some common examples of landscaping ordinances include:

  • Minimising damage from stormwater run-off.
  • Maintaining and improving the aesthetics of the local area.
  • Improving water and air quality.
  • Enhancing the overall quality of the development.

Make sure you comply with the landscaping provisions that apply to your local area. Otherwise, you won't get local council approval for the use of the land.

Local Weather

The local weather is another important consideration for designing your commercial landscape. Whether you are installing softscaping, hardscaping or both, the local weather conditions should guide your selection of landscaping materials.

If your commercial property is located in a water-scarce area and you'd like to grow plants on the property, you will need to select plant species or varieties that require minimal watering to survive. If you don't see a lot of sunshine in your area, don't go for plant varieties that require an abundance of natural light to blossom.

When it comes to hardscaping, different landscaping materials, such as concrete, natural stone and brick have varying levels of tolerance against different weather elements. For example, concrete tends to expand and contract with changes in temperature and therefore should be avoided in areas that experience extreme temperature fluctuations.

Landscaping Maintenance 

Every commercial landscape requires some TLC to keep looking its best throughout the year. This is where landscaping maintenance comes in. When coming up with the design of your landscape, assess the level of care and upkeep that is required to maintain the functionality and aesthetics of the landscape, thus protecting your investment. 

The surest way to create the most suitable landscape design for your commercial property is to enlist the services of a commercial landscape designer. They will assess your commercial landscaping needs and help you create the perfect landscape design for your needs. Contact a company like Tim Davies Landscaping to learn more.
