Economic Benefits

  • Landscaping adds an average of 14.8 percent to a home’s value.
  • Homes with attractive landscaping sell quicker-by as much as five to six weeks.
  • As home improvements go, landscaping is an excellent investment. Recovery value at selling time can be 100 to 200 percent.
  • Landscaping enhances property values, which add to the community’s tax base
  • Proper placement of shade trees and evergreen windbreaks reduces cooling and heating costs.

Environmental Benefits

  • Trees moderate urban “heat islands’ created by extensive paved areas. Lawns cool a home at the same rate as a one-ton air conditioner. Lawns also trap dust, absorb noise, and provide outdoor living areas for children and adults.
  • One tree removes 26 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air every year and releases about 13 pounds of oxygen-enough for a family of four on a daily basis.
  • Plants reduce noise pollution up to 50 percent.
  • Plants control runoff and erosion. They allow soil to absorb water, returning it to aquifers, Decreased runoff means less urban flooding.
  • Plants provide food and habitat for wildlife, which contributes to biodiversity and a healthier environment.
  • Landscaping creates green space for human rest, recreation and renewal
  • Plants improve air quality. ‘One tree can remove 26 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere annually, equaling 11,000 miles of car emissions. Landscape plants, including shrubs and turf, remove smoke, dust, and other pollutants from the air. One study showed that 1 acre of trees has the ability to remove 13 tons of particles and gases annually.

Irrigation installation and Drainage Solutions

The importance of irrigation for vegetable gardens cannot be emphasized enough, for without water, your garden will die. However, it is essential to find the correct balance between rainwater and supplemental water because if you have too much or too little water, the result will be the same: dead or sickly plants. Moreover, if you have standing water in your yard it can create disastrous consequences for the turf and plants. We will help you find the solution!
