Your Landscape Is a GROWING Investment
Your lawn and landscape are more than just an aesthetic addition to your property. In fact, your landscape is a significant contributor to the value of your home, and the resources you invest in the enhancement and maintenance of your property benefit you both now and in the future.
Enhancing Curb Appeal
First impressions matter, and your landscape is often the first thing that visitors see when they approach your home. It’s easy to grow accustomed to how the front of our home looks, and this leads to many front landscapes becoming a bit overgrown or outsized for the space. By replacing entryway landscaping with right-sized plantings, you can have a new look that highlights your home instead of hiding it.
Increasing Home Value
Landscaping is especially beneficial if you are planning to sell your home any time soon. Studies have shown that well-designed and maintained landscaping adds up to 15% to the value of your home. Prospective buyers see patios and outdoor rooms and picture themselves entertaining and relaxing. Buyers see well-maintained landscapes and know that the property as a whole has been cared for.
Improving Energy Efficiency
Did you know that your landscaping can save energy? With proper planning and strategic planting, trees and shrubs can provide cooling shade in the summer and windbreaks that reduce heating costs in the winter. Trees have a cooling effect not only by casting shade but also because water evaporates through their leaves. This process, known as transpiration, cools the surrounding air.
