Spring has sprung here on the East Coast! While you are likely spending a lot of downtime lately due to public health and safety concerns, you may be thinking about all the things you’d like to get done at your commercial property. One big thing that commercial property owners should be thinking about in the springtime is the landscaping. Adding trees to your commercial landscape can boost curb appeal and add many other, long-lasting benefits!
Boost the Curb Appeal of Your Commercial Property
The point of your commercial property is to make money. To generate business either from renting an office or dwelling, or to sell some sort of good or service. If your property is looking run-down and tired, potential clients and customers will be put off by it. Trees take your commercial landscaping to a whole new level, quite literally!
It’s Great for the Environment
Trees also provide many great benefits to other plants and animals living around them. Birds, insects, and other small creatures and critters call trees their homes. Plants can’t live without sunlight, but there are some plants that can’t have too much sun. If you have trees on your commercial property, they can provide much-needed shade for other plants that may need it and shade for you and your customers as well.
Lasting Protection Against Soil Erosion
We just got done with a very wet winter. Many parts of the East Coast didn’t see any snow accumulation at all. There was, however, plenty of rain. All of this rain can oversaturate the ground and once the ground is totally saturated, the water will have nowhere to go. Eventually, all of that water flowing will start to erode the soil around your property which when left unchecked can cause many problems. Most trees have massive, strong root systems. All of these roots help to keep soil in place and keep soil erosion to a minimum.
