Key Areas For A Successful Commercial Landscape

Seasonal Planting Beds

As an important part of any business landscape, seasonal plants and annuals add visual interest to signage, walkways and parking lots. They play a big part in achieving a well manicured appearance.

Celosias are a very popular annuals in Florida their attractive colors have been very successful at attracting guests.

According to Texas A&M University Cooperative Extension, “Celosias are one of the most eye-catching annuals to grow in the garden. Most commonly seen are dazzling red, yellow, cream, orange, rose, deep magenta, and pink. Merchants take advantage of the low-maintenance, high-impact aspects of celosia.”

A landscape design includes fresh mulch. Not only is it an easy way to freshen up and bring new life to a tired landscape, it conserves water, protecting the plants from drought and extreme weather conditions, heat and cold, suppresses weed growth, and provides vital nutrients to the roots as it decomposes.

Turf Maintenance

A large component of any commercial landscape is the grass. Whether it makes up a good part of the landscaping or just a small fraction, it can’t be overlooked. An effective turf management should focus not only on increasing the health, beauty, and vigor of the grass, but also on reducing its reliance on water, pesticides, and fertilizers. Quality care, environmentally friendly plants and equipment, should always be a priority!


Irrigation can make or break your landscape. Properly designed, with quality mechanical devices and proper maintenance will have a high return on your investment.
