Installing artificial turf at your business can be just as beneficial as using it at your home. In business, the power of a first impression can mean the difference between a sale and being completely overlooked. The outside of your business is the first thing a potential customer sees. In some cases, it is what draws them and, most certainly one of the things that draws their attention.
Offers Curbside Appeal
Artificial turf gives your business a professional appearance. It starts to create the professional atmosphere that will continue to be established once they enter your front door. Making sure the outside of your business always looks its best, will ensure customers continue to walk through the front door. Artificial grass does not fade or change with the seasons, giving it the appearance of being fresh and green all year round.
A well-maintained lawn will also raise the value of your property as well as those that surround it. If for some reason you ever plan on selling the property, the first thing that will attract a buyer is the building's outward appearance. Having a beautiful lawn is an eye catcher for someone who is interested in starting out with a prime piece of property. Artificial grass will remain beautiful and lush for several years to come without having to break the bank to keep it looking that way.
Benefits the Environment
Installing artificial turf is also beneficial to the environment from a business point of you. Because it is ever-green, there is no need for harmful fertilizers or weedkillers. The grass remains uniform in both color, height and texture without the repeated application of harsh chemicals. Natural grass must have weedkiller applied on a regular basis to prevent unsightly intrusions of dandelions and other common lawn weeds from making an appearance.
Artificial grass also saves on water usage. If you live and work in an area where adequate amounts of rainfall are not guaranteed on a regular basis, installing manufactured turf may be just what you need. You don't have to water it, mow it, weed it or fertilize it. When it does rain, the permeable backing allows water to drain through, preventing standing puddles that can appear in a natural lawn.
Saves Time and Money
Basically, artificial turf saves both time and money. It lasts for anywhere from 10 to 15 years depending on the type you have installed and how well it is taken care. Once it is properly installed, the time and money saved over the next decade far outweighs its overall cost.
No mowing (saves on gas and repair to lawn vehicles)
No fertilizers (you don't have to hire a company to keep the grass green)
No weeds (you don't have to hire anyone to spray weedkiller)
Less money spent on employees mowing and maintaining the lawn
Less money spent on water usage
More time for employees to work in other capacities and increase productivity
Saving time and money is what keeps a business profitable. Instead of spending excessive amounts of time caring for the lawn, workers can be busy doing jobs within the company that can foster sales and improve the financial outlook of the business.
One of the most important benefits of installing artificial turf is that it helps to create a work environment where employees can take pride in their company. Working at a facility that looks nice and is well maintained, keeps people looking forward. Taking pride in how the company represents itself, helps them to also take pride in what they do. A person is more likely to give 100 % if they feel the company does the same.
