Invest in Your Property With a Landscaping Design Service
As a business, the exterior of your property is often the first thing a new customer will see when they visit. Landscaping design planning helps you put your best face forward and turn your property into something that will impress your guests. How do you know when your exterior is due for an upgrade? You can start by asking yourself the following:
- Does the property reflect the level of professionalism and excellence we strive for?
- Is it consistent with our current branding?
- Does it offer everything our customers, residents and employees need?
- Are there ways it can be better?
If your property needs a facelift for any reason, Complete Landscaping Service can help. We offer design and master planning for a wide range of commercial operations, including malls and retailers, apartment complexes, parks and golf courses, universities and government facilities, and more.

What Is Master Planning?
A master plan is a comprehensive document outlining all aspects of a facility’s landscaping and hardscaping. This includes its lawn and landscaped areas, irrigation, lighting, water features, walkways, masonry and outdoor structures — and more. A master plan may look far into the future, outlining possible upgrades and expansions as the needs of your business grow. A master plan includes conceptual models and diagrams, but more than that, it lays out a philosophy and a vision for the property.
Effective master planning requires the coordinated efforts of architects, horticulturalists, contractors and other professionals. A master plan will show how these components fit together to achieve a harmonious design. Some things that a master plan will consider include:
- The orientation of your building and the elevation and grading of your property
- How best to maximize sun exposure and shady spaces to not only make the most of the living space but to get the maximum and most healhty growth from your landscape
- A site’s soil conditions and climate, and the type of plants and flowers that will thrive in them with the least amount of work
- Drainage issues and whether or not an irrigation system should be considered
- How people will move through the space and the potential features they will benefit from most
Why Is Master Planning Important?
Master planning is often overlooked in commercial landscaping. While many contractors and business owners will start a project with a clear vision, a master plan provides context and understanding that can reveal potential issues early on, while ensuring that all elements come together in a way that makes sense.
In commercial landscape design, master planning is both a conceptual and a strategic tool. Thorough planning will make a project go smoother, reducing the risk of delays and cost overruns. It can also save you money by identifying ways to cut costs, options for streamlining workflows and opportunities to buy materials in bulk.
While it’s possible to renovate an exterior space without a comprehensive master plan, the best commercial landscape design specialists will always take the time to draw one up before work begins.
