Increased Property Value
A well designed landscape can not only boost curb appeal, but it can add up to 20 percent to the home’s value. Incorporating strategic lighting into the design can also discourage crime by making it more difficult for criminals to access the home unseen.
Lowered Energy Costs
Planting trees around the exterior of the home can help beat the heat by lending natural shade, insulation and even help save money on air conditioning costs. During colder months, trees can block brisk winter winds to help decrease heating costs.
Maximized Functionality and Enjoyability
Who doesn’t love to enjoy a quiet evening outdoors? Strategic landscaping can keep noise pollution at a minimum, block unsightly views and increase the overall size of the home by adding outdoor living space for family and friends to enjoy. Homeowners looking for more functionality can incorporate edible plants, like vegetables, fruits and herbs, to provide healthy and convenient sources of nutrition while alleviating added costs in the kitchen.
Positive Environmental Impact
Plants not only help humans but benefit local wildlife too. They can provide food and shelter for bees, birds, butterflies, squirrels and other animals. Plus, plants reduce air pollution by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, which helps the earth (and its inhabitants) breathe easier.
