New Year, New Landscape – The 2023 Tampa Bay Commercial Landscape Trends

As the weather grows colder and the Christmas decorations dominate the night, many people take a moment to reflect on the last twelve months while turning their attention to the future. It’s a time of growth and hope. The new year is loaded with potential.

For us, it’s also an opportunity to look toward the future of landscaping and prepare to push the latest trends in the Tampa Bay area. After all, Landcrafters is known for setting the standard for commercial properties in the region.

With 2023 on the horizon, we wanted to take a moment to share the top 2023 commercial landscape trends for Tampa Bay with you. We hope you find it as exciting as we do!

Natural Fencing

Also known as hedges, 2023 promises more natural fencing and fewer artificial partitions. While traditional fencing still has its place—especially on commercial properties—opting for dense, fast-growing plants to create a barrier is gaining traction. Expect this to be a popular landscaping trend in the coming year, particularly in temperate states like Florida.

More Green Space

No matter what the nature of your business is, employees and visitors alike can benefit from more green space. In 2023, you can get creative with these areas. Whether it’s a patio area or a pergola, adorning your green spaces with modular outdoor furniture, shade systems, and welcoming natural elements can make them idyllic spots to build relationships, recharge during a break, or even do a little work while surrounded by nature.

While green space is nothing new, the trend for commercial properties in Tampa Bay in 2023 is to think of them as a continuation of your indoor space. Creating cohesion and flow between the two makes transitions seamless and make both spaces feel more open and integrated.

Green space is one of the major commercial landscape trends for 2023.Emphasis on Efficiency

It’s no secret that prices have risen dramatically in just about every sector this year. As such, the emphasis on landscaping efficiency will reach new heights in 2023. We project this to be one of the biggest trends for commercial Tampa Bay properties in the coming year as businesses seek to offset increased costs without sacrificing the pristine landscape that is so integral to their curb appeal, visitor experience, and employee happiness.

Minimizing waste is a big part of the equation, which is why automated watering will also be trendy in 2023. Combined with other 2023 landscaping trends, such as low-maintenance plants and reduced reliance on chemicals, you have a recipe for superb efficiency and cost-saving.

More Batteries

The popularity of battery-powered landscaping equipment has exploded in recent years, especially as fuel costs rise and traditional lawn care gear becomes increasingly more expensive to operate. Throw in a healthy dash of innovation from manufacturers and expanded availability of electric equipment, and it is practically guaranteed that you’ll see battery-powered mowers, trimmers, and more trending in 2023.

A Return to Relationships

While the world continues to expand and grow interconnected on a grand scale, it seems more businesses and individuals are focused on plugging into their local communities, developing personal relationships, and working with those around them. The same holds true for commercial properties in Tampa Bay—there is a renewed interest in partnering with local professionals who know the area and care about local businesses.

It is this exact sentiment that has contributed to Landcrafters becoming a staple of the Tampa Bay area over the past two decades. In addition to being passionate landscaping professionals, the team at Landcrafters cares about its community and values every client, big or small.
