There are some structures on a commercial property that are required for the day-to-day operation. Things like recycling bins, garbage cans, dumpsters, air conditioning units, gas meters, and sheds. Most of the times, these structures are used by the maintenance crew or by the super so they need to be accessible, but they create an eyesore on your commercial property. With DeCarlo Landscape Design, we can help to cover up those eyesores by utilizing trees, shrubs and other tricks to hide them!

Many of the options that we use for privacy borders or property line marking can be used to hide any structure on the property that shouldn’t be the focal point. Once the dumpster area is hidden by shrubs, your residents, employees or staff will see the beauty of the foliage planted rather than having to walk by the dumpster on the way to the car. 

Of course, some of these items need to be able to be accessed. This is where using an expert in landscape design comes in to play. A professional knows what structures, like air conditioning units, propane tanks, vents and water meters need to be accessible on top of being hidden. This means care must be taken to adequately hide the object, but not hinder the access required.

If your commercial property could be looking better if certain structures weren’t seen on the property. Call DeCarlo Landscaping Design for an estimate, let us know if you have something on your property that you are interested in hiding and we will work with you to come up with something that hides the eyesore and helps to show the true beauty of your property.
