3 Ways You Can Use Your Landscaping to Improve Commercial Property Safety and Security

Landscaping around a commercial property that gives privacy and aids in security/

When it comes to security techniques and tools used to protect your property, what do you use? Most companies use a combination of security guards, cameras, and other electronic devices. However, one of the best ways to improve security might surprise you—your landscaping. How can landscaping improve your property’s safety and security?

Maintaining Shrubs and Trees

Trees and shrubs add beauty to your property, and they can be major safety hazards when they are overgrown. Branches and poorly cared for shrubs can be trip hazards, and trees with dead or dying branches may fall on a customer or their vehicle. Proper maintenance makes your business a safer place and reduces your risk of an accident.

Snow and Ice Management

Safety and security don’t stop being a priority when snow is on the ground, and commercial grounds maintenance is an excellent way to improve your business. Ice and snow put your employees and customers at risk of slipping and falling. A professional grounds maintenance company can keep sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, and walkways free from any snow and ice.

Groomed Lawn and Landscaping

One of the biggest signs that opportunistic thieves look for is a property that appears unkempt or that has overgrown shrubs and trees that will be easy to hide behind. Professional landscape maintenance shows that your property is cared for and not abandoned. Many property crimes are crimes of opportunity, so making your property less appealing to criminals will encourage them to go elsewhere.
