5 cost-Effective Ways to enhance Your Commercial Property for Summer
Summer makes everything brighter, bolder and more colourful. Scarifying, aerating and over-seeding your lawns, and treating them with fertiliser, are simple, cost-effective way to help make tired grass greener. For a more instant effect, re-turfing is also a good idea for properties where grass has become worn and muddy over winter.
We’ve all heard idyllic descriptions of tree-lined streets and leafy suburbs. But so many commercial properties don’t enjoy the benefits of trees. As well as creating a more pleasant appearance, trees improve the quality of the air and add an element of privacy and seclusion to your property.
If you’re looking for something on a smaller-scale, hedges are the perfect solution. On the perimeter of your property, they can brighten up the space while adding a layer of privacy. Using the right shrubbery, it’s possible to add instant hedges ; otherwise, planting small and trimming regularly will produce a good hedge over successive seasons for a much lower cost.
With the weather getting warmer, it’s only natural that people want to get out and enjoy it. Providing employees or tenants with somewhere to sit, whether it’s a couple of benches or a whole outdoor seating area, is a simple way of getting your property ready for making the most of the British summer sun.
Keeping on top of things
When the sun comes out, it’s much easier to see those patchy areas or overgrown trees. One easy way to get your property looking great for summer is simply by maintaining existing features. Trimmed hedges, pruned trees and well-maintained flower beds will impress visitors and help your commercial property look it’s best throughout the summer months.
Not only that, maintenance is essential to keeping things in working order. Having gutters cleared and making sure trees aren’t overgrown, for example, will stop more serious problems developing in the long run.
