about the process
In majority, commercial landscaping is widely miss understood and under appreciated. The commonly held misconception is that commercial landscaping is any grassy area around a building. However, true landscaping is much more than just squares of grass between slaps of cement. Commercial landscaping is a complex art of incorporating different plants and flowers, trees and shrubs, with other sustainable elements such as water features, rocks, benches, and little brooks. Even in districts experiencing drought or water restrictions, landscaping is a viable part of a healthy community. Professional landscapers will thoughtfully design your property taking all factors into consideration before building a appealing and functional environment to fit your needs.
Green spaces support local populations by adding aesthetic appeal, reducing runoff caused by precipitation, providing spaces for the community to rest or relax, and offset the heat island effect. While not the only part of a landscape, grass can be very beneficial to implement into a landscape as it is much cooler than asphalt, cement, or bare soil. A lawn can be as much as 31 degrees cooler than asphalt and 20 degrees cooler than bare soil. Also, grass acts as natural filter that captures dust, smoke and other harmful pollutants. Lawns can also absorb dangerous runoff that left unchecked would filter into bodies of water.
Trees can also be a very beneficial part of any landscape. In addition, trees reduce glare and also help to lower the surrounding temperature, making urban areas with plenty of trees cooler and more pleasant to live in. On top of that, they help keep spaces cool by shading the surround area during the hottest part of the day. Just like grass, trees are great at removing dust, smoke, and pollutants from the air. A single tree can easily capture 26 pounds of carbon dioxide each year; that’s the same amount of carbon dioxide a car driving for 11,000 miles creates.
