Hotel Landscape Musts—How to Get Your Hotel Guests’ Attention With Your Landscape Enhancements
With the sheer number of hotels lining the beaches, roads, and cities in our gorgeous sunshine state, we believe (and as a hotel owner or manager, you’d probably agree), that setting your establishment apart from your competitors is crucial!
Whether you believe it or not, the right type of hotel landscaping can play an enormous role in that! When it comes to hotels, the outdoor property itself is just as important as the indoor amenities. How the landscape of a hotel is created and maintained plays an enormous role in visitors’ impressions and reviews of your place.
So, how can you ensure you’re doing what you need to for your hotel landscape? You can start by reading this blog.
At Landcrafters, we’ve got all kinds of tips for making any commercial space more visitor-friendly, but when you’re talkin’ specifically about hotels, we’ve got a few must-try landscaping tips that are bound to improve your landscape and get your guests’ attention.
Bold Color is a Winner (Always)
We consider bright, engaging colors to be the easiest and fastest way to get that wow-factor you’re looking for—especially when it comes to hotel landscapes. Whether you’re choosing Florida-friendly blooms that bring a blast of fun color or you’re regularly cycling through seasonal favorites to ensure near-constant color, there are plenty of ways to keep your landscape bright, fun, and engaging at all times
Check out some tips right here for optimizing that wow-factor color we all want for our commercial spaces.
Know What Materials Make the Most Sense For Your Space
Mulch versus decorative rocks? Groundcover versus grass? These are commonly asked questions when designing and maintaining a commercial landscape just like yours. The hardest part? There’s no one right answer. Every landscape is different—from the soil to the layout to the purpose it’s trying to accomplish, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Working with a quality landscaping team to determine what type of landscaping materials are right for your space is key to your hotel landscape’s success.
Plus, when you’re using the right materials, you can typically save on landscape costs. Makes sense, right? If you’re working with durable, long-lasting materials that are multi-faceted and multi-purposeful, you can squeeze a ton of purpose out of a single cost (we’re lookin’ at you, mulch and decorative rocks). Any quality landscaping company should be able to help you with this!
Neat Edges for Perfect Leading Lines
Thanks to human nature, we’re all a bunch of suckers for symmetry and clean lines—so take advantage of that! Edging your beds is the ultimate solution for creating those gorgeous leading lines that our aesthetic brains can’t get enough of.
Entranceways Cannot Be Ignored
Remember, the entranceway to your business is the first impression—and you never want to make a bad first impression. Consider your entranceway to your hotel as your handshake—you want it to be strong, interesting, and engaging. You want it to be a handshake that gets someone’s attention, makes them feel welcome, and encourages them to come back for more.
With unique features like pops of color, a welcoming area, and creative add-ons, you can make sure your commercial entryway gives the ultimate impression.
Don’t Be Afraid to Add in Fun Features
Think of the kiddos and families, here. Unless your business is not targeted toward families, we highly suggest adding in features that are aimed directly at entertaining kids! From butterfly gardens to educational flora and fauna hiking trails and more, there are so many easy, affordable ways to win the hearts of the families who are visiting your establishment. All it takes is a little shift in focus. Ask yourself, what would you want to be featured in your landscape if you were a kid or if you were bringing your whole family to visit?

Maintenance Is Your Best Friend—Never Abandon It
You can create the most elaborate, exciting hotel landscape possible, but if you never take care of it or maintain it, all that creative work is going to go to waste. Why? Because no one is going to be able to enjoy or appreciate the thought, care, and hard work you put into that landscape when there are weeds growing wildly, unkempt areas, dangerous roots popping up, and all-around chaos taking over your landscape.
Maintenance is everything when it comes to ensuring your beautifully designed landscape is always pristine and ever-focused on doing its job—attracting and wowing visitors every time they step onto your property.
From getting rid of those nasty Florida weeds and regularly tackling pests and diseases to pruning and making small, incremental landscape improvements, maintenance is truly everything when it comes to keeping an impressive hotel landscape.
Ultimately, the biggest key to keeping your hotel landscape at that wow-worthy level is hiring on a professional landscaping team who can help you make your landscape dreams a reality.
Hiring a quality, professional landscaper who’s fully experienced working in the wonderful world of Florida-specific landscape can make all the difference for your hotel landscape.
