Whether your commercial parking lot is big or small, you want to keep an eye on maintenance costs and water usage. But you also want your lot to be attractive to those who are meant to use it — your customers.
There are some small landscaping changes you can make to your parking lot that will upgrade it from basic to attractive, and when you choose artificial grass for your surface, you’ll reduce your maintenance time and expense.
Utilize Parking Strips
Any areas of your lot where a sidewalk or pathway meets the street probably has a small buffer, or parking strip, that is an ideal place to add green to your lot. However, because these areas are typically small and narrow, they can be hard to water and to mow. Artificial grass, on the other hand, won’t need mowing or watering, so it’s ideal for areas that won’t work for sod.
Add Trees To Your Community
Trees are helpful for parking lots because they provide a shaded cover for cars and pedestrians. You’ll want to check your county’s landscaping regulations for approved tree options, and you’ll want to look for a species that won’t leave cars covered in dusty pollen. But trees also make it hard to grow grass or other plants by preventing the sun from reaching the ground. Artificial sod doesn’t need sunlight, which makes it perfect for tight spaces that require trees and ground cover.
Plant A Garden
Why not put outdoor space to use? Growing a garden in your parking strips is easy; find an attractive box — some even come with benches attached — and plant some flowers, herbs, or other specialty landscaping. Make sure you don’t plant anything that could be toxic to people or pets. When you have an artificial grass ground cover, it’s not a problem to have structures that cause shadows.
