Nothing says “Welcome” quite like an attractive, clean and easily-accessible entrance to your establishment. For retail establishments, making people comfortable while drawing them in is imperative to doing business; probably more than most other factors. Think about it: if they aren’t attracted to your business, they won’t have the chance to find out how great your services or products are; they won’t be able to enjoy the environment you’ve worked so hard to create; they won’t know how low your prices are. If your front door says that you don’t care, neither will your prospective customers and they will go elsewhere. Make sure your customers are judging you in all the right ways with attractive and creative commercial landscaping. As Jacksonville’s premier commercial landscape design company, C & L Landscaping understands the elements of outdoor environments that customers appreciate. Make sure to remember these guidelines when it comes to your organization’s facade:
- Keep it clean – Even if you don’t have extra money for fancy landscaping, most people are simply looking for a clean and well-maintained environment. Make sure that all walkways and paths are clear and kept free of obstacles. Keep all plants and trees healthy and trimmed back, creating an inviting space around the front of your business. Also ensure that the entrance is clearly marked and easy to get to.
- Add color – Though it seems that flaura and fauna do not make all that much of a difference, they definitely do. People are just naturally attracted to colorful places, with reds and yellows creating more inviting spaces than cooler colors but all colors of the rainbow create for more attractive, and therefore, more successful commercial spaces.
- Add a space to enjoy – People want to have an experience rather than a chore to do. Make shopping in your center more enjoyable by adding spaces to sit and rest, water features that promote relaxation and lighting and sound installations that create a welcoming ambiance for all of your visitors.
