Enjoy Relaxation in a Commercial Landscaping Environment

Posted by Gene Ebertowski, President on Jun 1, 2016 8:30:00 AM


Commercial property managers of corporate offices and residential communities have a unique opportunity to improve their outdoor environment in corporate settings with well-designed and maintained landscaping. Design elements of the relaxation garden help reduce stress by incorporating design components of nature in the garden. The natural environment presents stimuli that supports and encourages relaxation and social group activities.

Exercise, a sense of control; social activity and nature help reduce stress resulting in healthy outcomes.

How Can you Transform Your Landscaping for Relaxation?

Interaction Stimulates Commercial Property Landscaping

People can interact with nature through the plethora of diverse plant types creating visual interest throughout the seasons. The commercial landscaping architectural surroundings create a stimulating environment encouraging social conversation for visitors, clients and employees.  The soothing natural sound of running water softens nearby noise by creating a relaxing environment helping to calm the spirit during a stressful day.


A&M University Shows the Health Benefits of Corporate Landscape Planning

Research has been conducted in various exterior environments that show the therapeutic benefits of relaxation gardens. Roger Ulrich, a professor and director of the Center for Health Systems and Design at Texas A & M University, found that viewing natural scenes or elements fosters stress recovery by evoking positive feelings, reducing negative emotions, effectively holding attention / interest, and blocking or reducing stressful thoughts.

Encourages On-Site Team Building

Many employers coordinate and plan team-building events, some of which take place at a different facility. If provided the opportunity and choice to save on transportation and other costs, they will want to remain onsite and create a connection with your corporate property. Just imagine the many things that could otherwise get accomplished in a corporate team environment, and a chance to show that you care by providing relaxation elements for their benefit.
