With spring and summer around the corner, it’s a great time to think about the benefits that your outdoor living space provides. Being outside improves your mood and even your health. If you’ve been thinking about making some improvements to your landscaping, here are a few reasons to help you move forward, and some of them may even surprise you.
Planting Grass and Trees Provides Protection from Heat
Did you know that grass and trees could actually help you lower your cooling costs this summer? It’s true! Grass radiates cooler temperatures around your home, while trees provide shade from the unrelenting summer sun.
The heat that radiates from cement or asphalt can be unbearably hot and planting some trees and grass can help to combat the heat.
Grass and Trees Are Good for the Air
Both grass and trees remove carbon dioxide from the air and provide oxygen. Plants and grass also capture dust and remove other pollutants from the environment. One full grown tree is actually capable of providing enough oxygen for four people each day!
Improve Your Investment
This probably doesn’t come as a surprise, but beautiful landscaping can also increase your home’s value. By investing in grass, plants, or trees, you are not only improving your living environment, but also making your home more attractive to potential buyers if you should decide to rent or sell your home.
These are just a few reasons to invest in landscape improvements. Keep in mind that trees and plants can also help protect against erosion among other things. There are limitless reasons to improve your landscape and quality of life!
