If you own a new business, and need to put in a new parking lot to go with your new business building, you need to think carefully about what you want the parking lot to look and feel like. You are going to need to take into consideration how you want to landscape the parking lot, how you want the traffic to flow through the parking lot, and how many spots you want to fit within your space.

#1 Space

The first thing you need to think about is how many parking spaces you want within your parking lot. How many parking spaces you want will help dictate the pattern that you use for your parking lot. The number of parking spaces you want your parking lot to have will also influence how wide the parking spaces can be. Keep in mind that although slender parking spaces will allow more people to park in your parking lot, it will make it more difficult for people to get in and out of their vehicles. Parking spaces that are above the bare minimum are usually more appealing to customers.

#2 Traffic

Second, you need to think about how you want traffic to flow. Do you want faster traffic going right past your storefront? If you are okay with that, you may want to use the space right next to your building for driving, with vertical parking rows only. If you don't want fast cars driving near your storefront, you may want to put a row of parking spaces right in front of your store, followed by vertical rows. Make sure that traffic will be able to flow in a direction that will allow access to your store and create the environment you want in your parking lot.

#3 Landscape

Third, you need to think about how you want to landscape your parking lot. Do you want to plant trees and bushes around the outer edge of your parking lot? Do you want to have islands in the middle of your parking lot that have trees? Do you want to have garden beds right in front of your storefront?

You need to think about how you want to landscape before you put in your parking lot. Since your parking lot is also your landscaping space, you need to make sure that you have room for your landscaping within your parking lot design.

You need to think about how many spaces you want to have in your parking lot and how big you want the spaces to be. You also need to think about how you want the traffic to flow through the parking area and what type of landscaping you want to incorporate into your business design.

Getting My Home Fixed

After struggling for years with a crumbly front walk and driveway, I realized that there were some issues that I could probably have a paving contractor resolve. I talked with him about what I could do to make things better, and he encouraged me to look into ripping it out and getting it completely replaced. Although it was quite a paving project, things moved along quite well, and before I knew it, my entire yard looked a lot better. Check out this website for awesome information about paving and making things right. You won't regret making a few positive changes.
