As a business owner, it’s important to consider the outdoors of your commercial space just as much as the indoors. And if the greater part of your business is outside, this applies even more. Your landscape is the initial contact people have with your commercial space whether they are visiting or just passing by, and hence, it can have a major impact on them.
Want to boost your curb appeal and make a great first impression on visitors and passersby? Invest in Cherry Oaks Landscaping’s beautiful, innovative garden design. We have a full range of garden designs to suit you and your business, and we could even mix a few garden types in one single space if you’re feeling extra adventurous. In any case, a garden will add texture, dimension, and a pop of color to any landscape.
Whether you’re looking for something simple or more elaborate, or you have a specific goal in mind, there’s a style for every business and every budget too. Here are 5 different kinds of gardens that could completely change the look and feel of your commercial space.
1. Flower Garden
Adding essential color and livelihood, a classic floral garden can complete just about any landscape. And although it might be one of the most standard types of gardens, it’s always best to consult professional garden designers like us before planting flowers at your place of business.
If you want a professional and polished look to your flower garden, there are many factors to consider including what kind of flowers to plant, what color they are, when each bloom and whether they are low or high maintenance plants. Where to plant them is of great importance as well. A garden design always takes into account color and labor time when it comes to organizing flowerbeds, making sure the same flowers not only look good together but require a similar amount of attention and care.
When we get started, we’ll make sure the spot you want your floral garden in has lots of sun, and we’ll make sure we put down the best soil so that your flowers can thrive. Then, we can paint your landscape with flowers of all colors, shapes, and sizes.
2. Tropical Garden
Yes, it’s possible to have a tropical oasis in a not-so-tropical climate. With a little help from the experts, you can certainly have lush and lavish tropical foliage decorating your commercial space. Plants like hostas, lilies of the valley and ferns fair decently well in cooler temperatures when properly taken care of.
Fertilizer, mulch, a great irrigation system, and a certain amount of dedication can allow for beautiful results. And if you can spare the extra expense, a greenhouse might just be your best bet.
As one of the gardens that are the most difficult to maintain in our local area, we would only suggest this if you’re set on it and willing to spend the time and money on proper upkeep. A tropical garden is a gem to have, but it may require that much more work to keep your plants alive and looking good. And we’re always happy to help!
3. Water Garden
If you’re looking to bring both the soothing sound of water and unique plants to your landscape, a water garden may be the perfect option for you. They’re an easy way to add character and depth to your green space, house exotic aquatic plants, and get a water feature out of it too.
Choose between a classic pond or go the extra mile and get a stream. And when you’ve settled on the water feature, select submerged, marginal or floating aquatic plants to add to the mix.
The garden design experts at Cherry Oak Landscaping know the optimal water depth for each aquatic plant to be able to thrive properly, and they’ll be able to get the details just right so you’re not left with a water garden that’s mostly just water. Once it’s all set up, you can even take it up a notch and add fish to it. Exciting, isn’t it?
4. Therapeutic Garden
Use nature as a tool for healing and relaxation. A refuge for people to come to get away and just breathe. A therapeutic garden is specifically designed to help people feel at peace and can be a positive distraction from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
In this way, a therapeutic garden is an interactive space, designed for people to sit amidst wildlife closely. Cherry Oak Landscaping can help you achieve just that. Perfect for hospitals and nursing homes, an intricately crafted garden can be just what people need to feel better mentally and spiritually.
5. Formal Garden
When you’re looking for a garden design that’ll really make people go “wow,” a formal garden might be the right fit. Landscaping meets architecture: a formal garden has a specific structure to it and pretty much doubles as an art form.
If you’re looking to make an impression, this one is definitely it. There is a sense of order and precision that cannot truly be mimicked by nature itself. In this way, it is clear that someone has sculpted and transformed the garden’s features to look a specific way.
The landscape designers at Cherry Oak Landscaping can help you carefully map out your commercial landscape, creating symmetrical pathways, bedding, and feature placements. It is always possible to make a statement with the bigger picture.
