WHY INVEST IN LANDSCAPE?
Add Value & Environmental Benefits to Your Property...
Professional landscaping not only adds to your home's value and improves "curb appeal," but there are also many other benefits:
AIR QUALITY IMPROVEMENT
Landscaping can reduce air conditioning costs by shading the windows and walls of a home. Grass is much cooler than asphalt or cement and acts as an “air conditioner” for the surrounding area. Grasses also absorb carbon dioxide and break it down into oxygen and carbon. Roughly, a 50x50-foot lawn produces enough oxygen for a family of four.
EFFECTS OF TREE CANOPIES
Trees shading homes can reduce attic temperatures by as much as 40 degrees. Tree canopies also help reduce noise. From energy conservation to storm-water reduction, researches are finding that the presence of urban trees suggest lowering crime (U.S. Forest Service's Pacific Northwest Research Station).
