The temperatures are rising, the days are getting longer and summer is right around the corner. In addition to barbecues and road trips, this also means it’s time to start watering your commercial property; a process that can quickly add up. With drought-like conditions affecting most of the Western United States, now would be the perfect time to transform your business’ exterior with updated landscape architecture.
Our landscape architecture team has years of experience providing businesses and homeowners with aesthetically pleasing, water-conscious designs. Considering the walkways, planters and outdoor decor are one of the first things a new customer sees, it’s crucial to take your landscape architecture into account.
Permitting and city approval
Before breaking ground on a commercial project, all necessary permits must be gathered. If you’re unfamiliar with the process, this can be quite tedious and lead to delays. In addition, one misstep or overlooked piece of paperwork can lead to a hefty penalty or fine. Our landscape architecture professionals handle the permitting and city approval process on their own, ensuring all protocols are followed while saving you time, money and energy.
Are you wondering what kind of updates to your property will make the most difference? First, it’s important to think about the goals you’re trying to achieve. Do you want to cut back on the amount of water you’re using? What are the conditions of your pathways and parking lots? Are you a fan of hardscaping or do you want greenery to be present?
Once you have a vision of how you want your landscaping to look, it’s time for our landscape architecture team to work their magic. In addition to using state-of-the-art 3-D imaging, mapping, CAD and Geographic Information Systems, they have extensive knowledge of xeriscaping, a process that uses native plants to retain water more effectively.
Speaking of retaining water more effectively, you may want to consider redesigning your commercial irrigation system. In the high desert, water is a valuable resource that’s too precious to waste. Our landscape architecture team knows this and has experience formulating and implementing complex water retention and irrigation systems. In addition to being environmentally friendly, this process helps our clients cut back on the amount of money they spend on their water bill each month.
Signage and Gateway Design
What’s a commercial business without a sign?
According to data collected by FedEx, signs are a symbol of trust. In fact, 76% of Americans say they’ve entered a business based on its signage alone and 60% of Americans say the absence of a sign deters them from entering a business altogether. The data is clear: signage matters.
