Pump Up Property Value
A well-designed landscape can not only boost curb appeal, but can add up to 20 percent to the home’s value. By adding strategic lighting into the design, homeowners can also deter crime by making it more difficult for criminals to access the home unseen.
Lower Energy Costs
Planting trees around the exterior of the home can help avoid high air conditioning costs by providing natural shade and insulation to the house. Additionally, trees can block chilly winter winds to help decrease heating costs.
Maximize Fun in the Sun
Strategic landscaping can increase the overall size of the home by adding outdoor living space to allow more time spent outside with friends and family. In addition, landscaping can keep noise pollution at a minimum and block unsightly views. Homeowners seeking increased functionality from lawns can incorporate edible plants, like vegetables, fruits and herbs, to provide healthy and convenient sources of nutrition for the whole family.
Help Out Mother Earth
Animals can also benefit from strategic landscaping. Plants provide food and shelter for bees, birds, butterflies, squirrels and other animals. Plants decrease air pollution as well by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, which helps the earth (and its inhabitants) breathe easier.
