3 New Year's Resolutions in Commercial Landscaping | Charlottesville, VA

2014 is almost here! Have you made your resolutions yet? If you're a landscaper that focuses on commercial clients we've got 3 ways you can make your clients throw out the old and bring in the new. 

Green Roofs

In urban areas, commercial landscape design centers around adding landscaping in very limited spaces. A big area of growth is on top of buildings, where gardens can be put in that help decrease pollution. Vertical landscaping, which adds foliage to the vertical surfaces of buildings (think creeping ivy), is also becoming popular. Both of these trends bear watching as they are relatively new and the long-term sustainability has yet to be seen.

Mediterranean Landscaping

Inspired by the landscape in places like Spain, Italy, and Greece, Mediterranean-style landscaping includes terra cotta flower pots, fountains, and decorative tiles. Plants that thrive in the dry, sunny climate of the Mediterranean, like citrus and juniper, also provide great aroma and visual appeal.


Low-water and low-maintenance landscaping is growing in popularity. Climate-appropriate plants with minimal water needs provide a beautiful look that fits a conservation theme. Solar-powered outdoor lighting is easy and effective and is a growing player in the eco-friendly market.
