3 Reasons Why Commercial Landscaping Is Important

There is great value in having a presentable indoor office space, for both employees and visiting clients, but a well-manicured outdoor space is also greatly important. Clients, prospective employees, business partners, and those passing by will often a judge a company (if their logo is outside) by the presentation of the building and commercial landscaping. Some may not see the value in investing in professional commercial maintenance but in addition to the curb appeal, landscape design matters. Here are 3 reasons why commercial maintenance of landscape design is important:

Preserve Nature

In many industrial office spaces, there will still be trees and plants because it helps create an important balance. Green spaces are proven to help humans relax, and they also add a pleasing aesthetic to industrial architecture.

Employee & Visitor Safety 

Ensuring that walkways are stable and clear is of great importance for daily traffic and building retaining walls, if necessary due to the natural landscape of the area, helps protect from any natural shifting of eroding soil.

Management of Natural Elements

Along with guaranteeing employees and visitors have easy access to and from the office it is important to know how to manage natural elements, such as storm water. Landscaping can be planned in a manner to safeguard from excessive amounts of water by developing an adequate runoff system.

Landscaping is done best when it reflects your business’s’ brand identity and when you hire a full service and reputable company. Contact Cedar Grounds Maintenance to discuss your customized project!

Synergy Contracting: 3 Benefits of Interlocking Patios

Synergy Contracting: 3 Benefits of Interlocking Patios

Summer is right around the corner and that means it’s time for patio season! Whether you’re looking to entertain guests, throw a family barbecue, or soak up some sun alone, it’s important to consider a few key factors before you start work on your new patio. One of the most important decisions you’ll make is choosing a paving material and luckily, the choice is an easy one!

Here are the top 3 reasons you should go with an interlocking patio:

Durability

Because of its low initial cost, concrete and asphalt are popular choices, but don’t be fooled! Both tend to crack relatively easily, and asphalt softens in higher temperatures. Interlocking patios, on the other hand, are far less likely to crack, chip, or shrink. Plus, you can just remove and replace one stone if it’s damaged rather than having to incur the expensive cost of resurfacing the entire patio.

Aesthetics

Unlike other materials that have extremely limited colour choices and can’t really be customized to suit your tastes, interlocking stones come in a vast variety of colour combinations and finishes. Best of all, they can be placed in an endless assortment of patterns for a highly customizable design.

Maintenance

A major advantage of using interlocking for your patio is the low maintenance it requires. Asphalt, concrete, and brick all stain very easily and require a powerwash to properly clean. Interlocking patios wear much better than their counterparts – a quick rainfall is enough to keep it looking pristine.

With its durability, visual appeal, and low maintenance, it’s clear that going with an interlocking patio is a no-brainer! Visit wwww.synergycontracting.ca to build the patio of your dreams!
