Anyone can see the appeal of a well-designed landscape and manicured lawn. But beyond the aesthetics and visual allure of a beautiful yard, is there any value to landscaping and lawn care? Landscaping and lawn care services have a greater impact on your home and surroundings than you may initially think. Let’s discuss some reasons why landscaping and lawn care are important for any homeowner.
Curb Appeal and Home Value
A well-landscaped yard with a healthy lawn stands out in a good way in any neighborhood. Certainly, thoughtful details like shrubbery, trees, flowers, and beautiful hardscape additions make any yard and home look like a million dollars. However, simply maintaining a clean, healthy, and put-together yard gives your entire home a nicer impression. The curb appeal of your home doesn’t just make your property feel like a pleasant place to live, but it can actually boost your home value. In fact, this is also why many homeowners who plan to sell their homes often turn to landscape and lawn care services to spruce up their property for the real estate market.
A professionally designed landscape isn’t just something pretty to look at — it can actually lower your energy bills! Expert landscape designers can help you plant trees or build other yard structures to reduce your energy spending. For example, strategically placed trees offer your home plenty of shade during hotter seasons. This way, your AC won’t have to work as hard to keep your home cool. Those same trees could serve as a windbreak during winter months, thus saving you in home heating costs.
Protecting Your Property
Many people don’t think about how excellent landscaping and lawn care could be protecting their properties. Consider how landscapers expertly assess your current lawn and make recommendations to level certain areas or create drainage. That way, either during storms or when you water your plants, water does not collect in pools on your lawn or around your home structure. Prolonged exposure like this can cause expensive water damage to a home’s foundation. Another aspect to consider is home security. Unfortunately, thieves are more likely to target homes with unkempt yards since there are more hiding places in the form of overgrown branches and weed-filled lawns. A tidy and trimmed lawn with ample landscape lighting can deter any trespassing attempts onto your property.
