While spring is all about the landscape waking up, bringing green to the scene after a long, gray winter, summer is all about bursts of blooms in vivid varieties. As bright as the sun shines, so bloom the summer flowers, lively and dazzling, perky and brilliant. And they are such a sight to behold.
In fact, because great color can—literally—stop traffic, commercial facilities do their best to highlight specific areas of their properties, such as entrances or signage, with eye-popping pigments, maintaining their distinctive local brands with striking seasonal displays.
Desiring color in summer landscapes is a natural craving, particularly in the Midwest after surviving our harsh, cold, drab winter.
And if your brand is also committed to sustainability, never fear. Illinois commercial property managers can embrace environmental stewardship and have their seasonal color, too. It just takes a focus on conserving water, choosing the right plants and plant combinations with an emphasis on hardiness, drought tolerance and proper care.
