Why does landscaping matter? Isn’t mowing your grass enough? Well, maybe. But perhaps the investment in good landscaping is deeper than the surface of your lawn. Here are five examples that will make you realize the value of a well-landscaped yard.
A beautiful yard motivates you to get outside. Many studies show that spending time outside improves mental and physical health. Being outdoors can improve your mood, enhance concentration and memory, and relieve stress unless your yard is a mess. In that case, it might cause stress.
Good landscaping will make the yard the place the family wants to hang out. And there are so many fun ideas you can incorporate. Build an outdoor firepit so your family can roast marshmallows. Create a lush, green space for the children to run around playing tag or soccer. You could even create a serene garden spot or reading nook. No matter what you choose, the goal is to make it a place to build precious memories with the family.
Spending time with people you enjoy is an excellent reason to have good landscaping. With the right balance of furniture, hardscape surfaces, and greenery, you can create a backyard oasis to entertain friends and family. Do you love to cook out on the grill? Incorporate an outdoor kitchen into the design. Set up comfy seating and television to have a movie night or watch the big game.
Not only does a well-maintained yard help preserve nature, but proper landscaping also helps conserve natural resources like soil quality, air, and even water. Retaining walls help prevent erosion and reduce the amount of soil that ends up in the waterways. Proper grading and drainage can reduce stormwater runoff and prevent flooding. It also provides a place for local wildlife to thrive.
And last but not least, it’s a good investment. Installing permanent hardscapes such as patios and outdoor kitchens increases the value of your home and make it more appealing to buyers should you choose to sell. It’s safe to say that you’ll get back whatever you put into it. So, you can be confident that your investment in good landscaping has long-term benefits.
