Do you want to create a more beautiful outdoor environment for your home? Do you dream of gardens and paths, patios and late morning breakfasts outside? Are you ready to commit to your property and make it all that it could be?
See it in your mind?s eye, with shady trees, shrubs, paths, manicured lawns? and don?t forget that patio. Professional landscapers can make that image a reality.
Not only will professional landscapers give you beautiful landscaping, they save you money. What? Crazy. How can hiring professional landscapers save money, when you have to hire them? Because energy efficient landscaping, according to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, can save up to 30% yearly on household heating bills and planting dense trees can block up to 95% of sunlight and 75% of its heat, helping to reduce cooling costs. In fact, the planting of trees can reduce a previously unshaded house?s summer cooling costs from as little as 15% up to 50%. And, the Environmental Protection Agency notes that trees also reduce annoying noises by up to 50% and can mask irritating and undesired noises with more pleasant sounds.
If you?re planning on selling your property at any time, Money Magazine wrote that when selling, landscaping can bring a recovery value of 100% to 200%; what a great way to literally grow your investment. According to a study done by Clemson University, the landscaping of a home that is considered to be, ?excellent,? can generate a price of up to 7% higher than similar houses with landscaping that is only considered, ?good.? And when you are selling, that landscaping can speed up the sale by as much as six weeks.
Professional landscaping just makes sense ? money saving, beautifying, and it increases the value of your property? What are you waiting for? Make that landscape design dream become a waking reality.
