Many land and business owners choose to incorporate landscape design after learning the investment can actually save money. If you are considering putting some beautiful landscaping on your property, review a few of the potential benefits:
1. A natural cooler – Asphalt warms exponentially during the summer. This heat radiates, making the surrounding area and buildings hotter. When you add trees, shrubs, and bushes to your property they have cooling properties. Lawns can be up to thirty-one degrees cooler than cement and about twenty degrees cooler than dirt or soil. This reduction in heat can also transfer to your home or business. Shade will lower cooling bills in the summer, and the windscreen effect they provide in the winter reduces heating bills.
2. A natural environmental filter – With less soil erosion, dirty water or debris is less likely to flow into the sewer system or nearby bodies of water. A landscape with healthy grass can help collect pollution and dust. In addition to helping provide cleaner air, grass, trees, and other foliage produce oxygen, which we all need to survive.
3. Landscaping increases property value – A beautiful yard or frontage for your office gives a great first impression. Also, having a beautifully landscaped home is more appealing to potential buyers, reducing the amount of time it stays on the market and maximizing your asking cost.
4. Plants create health benefits – A landscaped lawn or garden has been shown to help decrease stress and lower blood pressure. Owners who maintain their landscape by planting, mowing, trimming, (and other activities) get regular exercise. Burn calories and work different muscles by doing a little home maintenance in the outdoors!
