While it may be what’s on the inside that counts, it’s what’s on the outside that draws us in. Sorry mom! Despite being taught at a young age to never judge a book by its cover, that is exactly what we do on a daily basis. We judge businesses on little more than their appearance: their curb appeal. It is just the way we are wired. When the eye sees something that the brain perceives as attractive, we are drawn to that certain something. In fact, according to experts as much as 70% of first-time sales at restaurants, retail shops, lodging facilities, and other commercial facilities can come from curb appeal.
In layman’s terms, the outside of your business matters. Curb appeal matters. Commercial landscaping matters.
