Entertaining, fresh air, and gorgeous landscaping, does it get any better? That is unless you’re still living with less than desirable landscaping. Don’t worry. We can help. Here are several reasons, both financial and aesthetic, to invest in your lawn’s good looks.
Boost Your Home’s Value
Professional landscaping provides a PHENOMENAL return on investment. The Washington Post recommends investing 10 percent of your home’s worth into landscaping (this includes your softscapes, hardscapes, outdoor structures, and pool). If you follow this advice, you can watch your house’s value grow when it’s time to sell.
Be Delighted With Your Home
A gorgeous backyard is your very own Utopia. Spend every night in your yard, watching the kids play, enjoying dreamy sunsets, and indulge in sun-soaked afternoons. Besides the financial and resale benefits of landscaped yard, it makes living in your home more delightful.
Lower Your Water Bill
No one gets rich by spending unnecessary money. Improving your irrigation system can save you a great deal of cash. A leak-free and efficient irrigation system can reduce your water bill, and its good for the environment. Bonus – You won’t have to replace dead plants due to overwatering!
No Pinterest Fails
Pinterest projects can be fun unless your backyard makeover is more complicated than just a few new plants. When doing it yourself, you’ll need to make sure you choose the appropriate materials, haul them all home in your Crossover (including those heavy pavers), carry them to the backyard, and place them into the level hole you’ve pre-dug and tampered. Then pull out the level and make sure it was done correctly, if not start all over. Only then can you go on to the next step of the process. Hiring a crew to handle the manual labor makes it easier.
Some folks naturally have green thumbs. Others kill every plant they own, even succulents (and that is HARD). Even if you’re pretty proficient in the garden, you might not have time every weekend to keep up the landscaping and lawn. A professional landscaper can bring your vision to fruition while also keeping it low-maintenance. A gorgeous yard doesn’t have to require much upkeep on your end. Does it get any better?
Lower Your Electric Bill
We already mentioned you could lower water bills with good landscaping, but did you know that energy bills can be reduced? Energy.gov reports, “shading and evapotranspiration from trees can reduce surrounding air temperatures as much as 6°F…and air temperatures directly under trees can be as much as 25°F cooler…” Plants and trees not only look great on your property, but they also save you money. It’s an all-around win.
Work with Your Weather
Heavy rain, ice, heat, drought—a pro landscaper can create a system in your backyard that works with our weather here in North Texas. For example, those torrential downpours that come every spring/summer, your new landscaping should feature a drainage system to redirect the water safely. Keep your house from flooding and your landscaping from being negatively affected by the weather in our area.
