The Importance of Landscaping.

Your yard protects your En vironment. 

Well-designed, efficiently watered urban landscaping is as vital to our ecosystem as any forest or wetland. 

One tree consumes 26 lbs of carbon dioxide each year.

Landscaping reduces noise pollution by up to 50 percent in some places.

An average front lawn has the cooling effect of 10 tons of air conditioning while absorbing air pollution.  A well-maintained lawn provides an effective fire-control buffer. 

Turfgrass is a continuous source of oxygen.  A 2,500 square-foot lawn supplies enough oxygen for a family of four. It is also a cleansing answer to our environment.

The clean gentle strength of turfgrass is the most cost-effective method for controlling wind and water erosion.  A healthy sodded lawn absorbs rainfall six times more effectively than a wheat field and four times better than a hay field.

Turfgrass acts as a natural filter reducing pollution by purifying the water passing through its root zone.

Landscaping Means Money to You

Landscaping cuts your utility bills.  It saves up to 40% of home energy costs by soaking up summer heat, providing shade and releasing moisture into the air.

And it is a wise investment. A well-landscaped yard increases property value up to 15% and can speed up selling time.  The average cost of replacing landscaping that has been allowed to die is $8,000.00
