Looking to make a mark with your landscape? Give it a focal point that will draw visitors’ attention… and maybe even encourage them to stop by!
When it comes to commercial landscapes, you want your storefront, hotel or corporate space to stand out for all the right reasons. The right focal point can help! In today’s blog, we’ll be sharing a few easy ways to find your landscape’s natural focal point… or create a new one. Take a look.
A beautiful tree
A big, towering tree has had years (maybe even decades) to anchor your landscape in a big way. It does the half the work for your landscaping team, as it will simply encourage us to frame it with subtle landscaping touches that really emphasize the tree’s natural beauty.
If you do have a tree like this on your property, but wouldn’t say it’s “focal point material” just yet, don’t worry. There’s no need to take down a healthy tree, especially one that’s packed with so much natural beauty and history! We can help restore the old tree on your property to a healthy, enlivened state so that it makes the kind of statement you want.
A body of water…
A beautiful body of water, like a small pond, can serve as a ready-made focal point for your commercial landscape. We can surround it with shrubbery and comfy places to sit so that visitors are drawn to it and, as a result, your business.
… or an elegant fountain
Even if you don’t have a body of water on your property, you can still enjoy the pleasant sight and sound of moving water! Do so through the addition of an elegant fountain, whose circular shape makes it easy to enjoy and observe from up close or afar. Surrounded with colorful flowers, your fountain is sure to make a powerful statement!
Structural additions as simple as your business’ name on a curbside sign are functional… but they can also be beautiful! Don’t overlook the ability of a sign like this to serve as a focal point of its own. Placed under the shade of a tree or surrounded by lush plant life, even simple structural additions can “wow” visitors.
A charming landscape inversion
If you don’t have lots of green space to work with, why not try an inverted landscape—that is, placing a small but thriving collection of shrubbery and flowers at the heart of an otherwise dry hardscape? This little burst of greenery is sure to impress and brighten the space that surrounds it.
