As a business owner, it’s important to take care of the physical aspects of your premises as well as what’s going on inside. The way your business looks from the outside can have a huge impact on potential customers’ first impressions! In this blog, we take a look at how commercial grounds maintenance can benefit your business.
What is commercial grounds maintenance?
Commercial grounds maintenance is essentially services from a reputable company to help keep your business property healthy, attractive, safe and clean for community members, such as potential customers and business staff. Services can be simple, such as regular grass cutting. Or, they can go one step further and include weekly, monthly or bi monthly maintenance services to keep on top of larger, more demanding grounds.
Why is it important?
When it comes to running your business, grounds maintenance is sometimes overlooked, but there are many benefits to this kind of service! What would you think as you approached a hotel and the garden was messy and unkempt? Imagine if you couldn’t even get your suitcases down the path easily due to overgrown hedges and weeds?! Not good.
Leaving the outside spaces of your business property overgrown could end up with a loss of custom, so it’s important to keep your business looking smart with tidy lawns, neatly trimmed hedges and well-designed landscaping.
Image, functionality and safety
The first reason why grounds maintenance is a must for your business is probably pretty obvious. It’s all about image! You want to look professional, and a tidy, well designed outside space helps perceive this image.
Functionality is another important reason why grounds maintenance is crucial, especially if you are in the hospitality sector. Do your customers use your outdoor spaces in the summer months? Do you hold regular outdoor events? Then you need to invest in a professional grounds maintenance service.
The third and most important reason why grounds maintenance is a good idea, is safety. We gave the example above of trying to squeeze your suitcase down an overgrown path. Now, imagine that customer had tripped over a vine and hurt themselves. That understandably wouldn’t go down too well. The same goes for any loose paving or slippery surfaces.
