I don't know about you, but for me a perfectly manicured and well cared for lawn is one that’s framed by beautiful tree and shrubs. There is nothing better than having great-looking trees and shrubs on your property, especially when they complement a clean, neatly manicured and healthy lawn.
Without a doubt beautiful trees make every yard look great. Trees and shrubs are about more than just the aesthetics, though. Did you know that trees are great for your home and the environment? Sure, they give you something beautiful to look at, but trees and shrubs are beneficial in many other ways:
- A yard featuring healthy, mature trees increases the value of your home by 10%.
- Strategically placing trees around a building may cut cooling costs by 20 to 50%.
- Trees and shrubs help maintain air quality. Healthy trees absorb air pollutants such as carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and smog, as well as generate oxygen through photosynthesis.
- The larger the tree, the more air pollution it removes from the atmosphere.
- Just one tree is capable of dispensing 400 gallons of water into the atmosphere in a single day.
- Trees and shrubs provide shade and serve as excellent protection from the winter winds, cutting energy costs for homes.
In other words, they are more than just for décor; trees and shrubs are an investment in your home, your family, and your lawn.
the value of caring for your trees & shrubs
Trees and shrubs add value to your property, and they definitely have their many benefits—but that's only if they are cared for properly. See, the challenge with having trees and shrubs as part of your landscaping is that disease or poor health is often not recognized immediately, and can be extremely hard to notice at all. By the time disease or poor health is noticed, oftentimes it's too late—and the tree needs to be replaced.
There are a variety of problems associated with trees and shrubs that are sick. Did you know that if your trees and shrubs aren't healthy, your lawn is also at risk of becoming diseased? Sick trees also don't absorb and retain nutrients as well, so they don't grow and often fall prey to pests and plant disease. Needless to say, your healthy, beautiful lawn isn't so healthy or beautiful with a sick shrub or tree sharing soil space.
