Four Reasons Landscaping is Important | Avon Landscaping

1. Adds Value

Proper landscaping will add value to your home. Landscaping and lighting can be the difference between selling or not selling your home. It is estimated that professional landscaping can increase the property’s value 10 to 12 percent. And, if you are considering selling your home, a poorly landscaped yard can lower your property’s value significantly.

2. Curb Appeal

A well-landscaped yard makes the property look as put together as a man in a well-tailored suit. But it isn’t just about the flower beds: it’s about the shrubbery, trees and accents as well. Don’t overlook the condition of your lawn either. If you give all of your attention to the flowers beds and accents but neglect the lawn, it still won’t look good. The nicer and more put together your yard looks the better you, and your neighbors, will feel. You might even inspire your neighbors to have their yards landscaped as well.

3. Energy Efficiency

You may not realize it, but professional landscaping can assist in the energy-efficiency of your home. Professional landscaping can plan for shade trees, which allows your home to stay cooler and prevents you from having to run your air conditioner as hard. A properly landscaped yard can provide windbreaks, which reduces heating costs considerably. Landscaping will also help with stormwater management, allowing for proper drainage to prevent flooding during heavy rains or melting snow.

4. Tranquility

A professionally landscaped yard will provide you with a comfortable, beautiful place to sit and relax or invite company over to enjoy. That reason, alone, is worth putting the effort into your yard.

There are several reasons why landscaping is important, these are just a few. Why try to landscape on your own, when you can hire an expert like Avon Landscaping who knows how to get the job done. An expert will have knowledge in areas, such as; when flowers bloom and how big they get, what good soil actually is, how to make your grass grow green and lush, where to put a walkway that won’t hurt stormwater flow and how your flower beds and yard should be graded to prevent flooding.
