Why Landscape?

Landscaping refers to any activity that modifies the visible features of an area of land, including:

 

  • Living elements, such as flora or fauna; or what is commonly referred to as gardening, the art and craft of growing plants with a goal of creating a beautiful environment within the landscape.

  • Natural elements such as landforms, terrain shape and elevation, or bodies of water;

  • Human elements such as structures, buildings, fences or other material objects created and/or installed by humans; and

  • Abstract elements such as the weather and lighting conditions.

            

Landscaping is both science and art, and requires good observation and design skills. A good landscaper understands the elements of nature and construction, and blends them accordingly.

 

There are many reasons for you to landscape your home or business. Besides the personal enjoyment you'll get from a prettier yard, landscaping adds more value than almost any other home renovation. If you have no immediate plans to move, all the better. Landscaping is the one home improvement that actually appreciates over time. Quality professional landscaping can:

 

  • Increase the value of your home or business

  • Save water

  • Reduce heating and cooling costs

  • Lower noise levels

  • Reduce crime

  • Block unpleasant views

  • Improve appearance

  • Optimize the use of land and outdoor space

  • Allow for creative use of styles, features, plants and ornaments

Landscaping Factors Affecting Value

The following are a basic list of areas that can have a positive effect on increased property values. All of this discussion on property values assumes that installations have been made in a competent and professional manner. Improper installations or poor construction, can turn what should be an asset into a liability that may detract from a properties value. 
 

  • Greenery (plants, trees and shrubs)

  • Walkways

  • Arches

  • Outdoor kitchen areas

  • Patios and decks

  • Outdoor fireplaces

  • Barbecue pits

  • Backyard retreats & gazebos


Think twice before installing extreme elements into the landscape that no one else in the neighborhood or area has installed. Everyone likes to think of themselves as unique and our properties are just an extension of ourselves. However, a landscape installation is not only part of your own identity, it is also part of the neighborhood's identity.
