Commercial space is becoming more precious every day in Southern California, so making use of every square foot can increase available common space and exterior areas for employees.

Parking lots are one of those office building amenities that are particularly attractive to tenants; guaranteed spots, and a shorter walk means happier employees. But they can also be unpleasant to look at, if not downright ugly. 

There’s no reason that you can’t make better use of your commercial office parking lot while simultaneously making employees and clients happier. And as a bonus, when you use artificial grass to create green spaces rather than natural sod, you’ll cut down on your overall maintenance costs.

Use Paving Stones For Pathways

Dull concrete can be easily replaced with paving stones to create a well-manicured and pleasing look. When you install artificial grass in your parking lot, you’ll have more flexibility with the types of rocks and designs you can use since you’ll never have to worry about dying grass.

Add Some Strategic Seating

Turn unused spaces into places for people to congregate when you add some outdoor seating. Get creative and use large wood planters that have a seating component, or opt for old-fashioned picnic tables. Place your seating areas on artificial grass for a surface that’s easy to clean and comfortable to sit on.

Include Privacy Features

Make your parking lot more intimate by adding shrubbery to block noise and sightlines, or try installing a trellis where vine-like plants can grow. No matter how shaded your space gets, artificial grass will always stay green.

Make A Mini-Pet Park

Do employees bring pets to work regularly? Turn part of your parking lot’s unused space into a dog run designed to let pets have some fun in a safe outdoor place. Artificial grass is an excellent surface for pets because its drainage layer makes sure urine never stains or smells. Plus, pets can’t dig up artificial grass which will help keep your space looking presentable.
