We take great pride in looking at the big picture of our properties and ensuring our buildings look as nice on the outside as they do inside. Our adaptive reuse project, Armour Junction, is a lifestyle community made up of flex commercial space, retail and residential units in The Armour District. The office spaces have an abundance of natural light, with each space having a canopy with an outdoor working and relaxing area, and is adjacent to the planned path of the Atlanta Beltline. Our Powers Ferry Business Park has outdoor tables with umbrellas, grills and plenty of room to walk. Flower beds and green space make the five buildings a beautiful and relaxing place. The Lumberyard Office Lofts in West Midtown has a t-shaped interior courtyard landscaped with brick paved planters. Large doors open from the spaces into the courtyard for an alfresco feeling all day long.
Here are five landscaping ideas for your building:
1 – Regular maintenance – don’t wait for spring to give your landscape and hardscape a good cleaning. Keep pavers and retaining walls clean, remove weeds around patios and pathways, keep the grass mowed, and clean up any trash that may be on your grounds.
2 – Your entrance is your first impression – make your business entrance welcoming with colorful planters and clean and clear walkways.
3 – Outdoor lighting – not only does outdoor lighting help with the safety of your property, it makes your building look attractive at night with appropriate lighting for patios, pathways, and building entrances.
4 – Patios and walkways – create walkways and patios filled with shrubbery to provide a place for relaxation for your staff and customers. Outdoor furniture, including tables, chairs and benches, add to the appeal.
5 – Flowers, flowers, flowers – flowers add color and energy to any space, not to mention enhancing curb appeal.
