Commercial properties need to have a well-kept landscape. It’s necessary because it not only enhances the exterior look of your establishment, but it also creates a positive first impression. Maintaining an outdoor space could be a tedious process, not to mention costly.
Low-Maintenance Plants for Your Commercial Landscape
Fortunately, you can install a cost-effective commercial landscaping design that easily allows you to utilize low-maintenance plants. They’re easy to grow and could thrive in virtually any environment. They’ll also be able to live longer even when kept in planters. When plants thrive in containers, you’ll have a consistent landscape design that doesn’t cost too much time or money to maintain.
Perennials are a good example of low-maintenance plants.
Enhance the Visual Appeal of Your Landscape
Perennials are not only low-maintenance; choosing the right ones can also contribute to how your outdoor space looks. There are two classifications of perennial plants: woody plants and herbaceous perennials.
Trees, vines, and shrubs belong to in the woody plant category. Their branches can continue to live in colder months and re-grow their leaves come spring. Meanwhile, herbaceous perennials are plants that die during fall, but their roots remain alive during winter allowing them to grow back in spring.
Here are some perennial plants to consider:
Also known as gaillardia, this perennial wildflower is drought resistant and very tolerant to heat. These plants introduce bright colors into your landscape design. These neat wildflowers bloom during summer until fall.
These flowers usually bloom in late summer and fall. Their colors include blue, purple, pink, and ruby red. They can be a beautiful addition to your landscape, capturing the attention of customers and other people passing by. Depending on the species, asters can grow up to five feet so make sure to situate the flower in the right area- we suggest using our short trough planter for this specific type of plant.
Rudbeckia or Black-eyed Susan
The vivid wildflower (pictured at the top of this post) blooms from early summer and into the frost season. Exposure to the full sun is ideal for this plant, but it can also grow in areas with partial sun exposure. Another advantage of this flower is that it can tolerate drought and can live even in any type of soil. Our round, low-profile planter would highlight the beauty of this wildflower very nicely.
This perennial can enhance the aesthetic appearance in shadier corners of your landscape. You can choose from different varieties of colors, such as blue, chartreuse, and pink. This plant can grow from four inches to four feet tall. It exists well with other shade-loving plants.
