Four reasons why landscaping is important

For home owners, their landscaping is their first chance to make an impression. People really do judge a book by its cover, and if your front yard, garden or plants look amuck – your house appeal will go down. This blog is here to remind you why landscaping is so important.

Landscaping adds value to your property
Your landscaping can mean all the difference from raising your property value significantly (anywhere from 10-12 per cent). This will be extremely beneficial if you are wanting to sell your house, and is a major selling point for prospective buyers.

Curb appeal
Curb appeal is the attractiveness of the exterior of a residential or commercial property. The more put-together your house looks, the more welcome your friends and neighbors feel when they enter your home. Isn’t that the point of a house? Maintaining your flower beds, shrubs and lawn will help with this.

Increases quality of life

A healthy looking home is a happy home. It might be silly to link your landscaping to your quality of life, but maintaining aesthetically-pleasing structures can increase our well-being, keep us connected with the community and gives people a hobby and keeps them active.

Helps the environment
Reducing air pollution, planting more trees and providing homes to our friends from nature are only a few of the reasons why landscaping can be beneficial for our environment. According to one study, one tree can remove up to 26 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere annually.

Moral of the story? Plant a tree and keep up with your landscaping to help reduce our carbon footprint.
