When you hire our landscaping company to design your landscape in Boulder, CO, we will do everything to ensure that your commercial landscaping design takes every safety measure into consideration. Here are some of the considerations that need to be made to ensure safety.

Paths

The paths on commercial properties should be designed to get pedestrians from point A to point B quickly. While it may be tempting to design a path that encourages people to stop and smell the roses, it is best for safety purposes to build paths that get people where they are going in a short amount of time. This will also ensure that people do not cut across the grass, wearing their own paths into the ground. Additionally, pedestrian walkways should be as far from vehicles as possible. When people must cross the path of vehicles, walkways must be clearly marked to both drivers and pedestrians.

Lighting

One of the most important elements of designing a safe landscape is ensuring that the exterior of the building is properly illuminated. The right lighting will make people feel at ease when walking around your property in the evening, so it is important that both direct and peripheral vision is improved. Additionally, proper lighting reduces the number of accidents, and discourages criminals from targeting your establishment.
