Landscaping The Front Of Your Gift Boutique That Is Situated In What Used To Be A House

Posted on

Have you established your new gift boutique in what was previously somebody's house? The boutique might be just one of many businesses that are situated in older homes. Maybe you have completed all of the remodeling that was needed in order for your gift shop to be fully functioning. If that's the case, you must be very excited about filling the boutique with the items you'll be selling. 

The front of your boutique might be a different story. It might have been neglected for such a long time that it is an eyesore. Do you have a landscaping plan already? If not, from doing some research to hiring a commercial landscaping service, here are some ideas that might help you.

​Do Some Research - Find out about home landscaping that was popular at the time your gift shop was an actual home. Were topiaries in vogue? Maybe hedges were used for privacy. What about statuary? Were large angel statues amid rose gardens part of that history's landscaping? If there is a front porch as part of your gift shop's design, how were porches decorated in that period of history? For instance, were there potted palm trees on the front porch? Maybe there were hanging swing benches or rocking chairs as part of the front porch decorating.

Think of making notes of everything that appeals to you.

Commercial Landscaping - Once you have gathered your ideas, think of using the services of a landscaping company. Find one that focuses on commercial landscaping.  

The landscaper will have the training and the experience to bring all of your ideas to life. Plus, he or she will enhance your ideas. He or she will have the skills to know how to design outdoor lighting in a way that your gift boutique will look as beautiful in the dark hours as it does during the day.

Perhaps the landscaper will include something like faux painted concrete in a hardscape. He or she will have contacts that are skilled in faux painting that will make the concrete look like Italian marble, weathered bricks, or almost anything else you want as the faux concrete painted design.

Another bonus of working with a professional landscaper is that you will more than likely get great prices on the materials that are selected for the landscaping project. In the end, every penny you spent will be worth the investment.
