Benefits of a Superior Landscape

Plants: A Valuable Community Resource


Economic Benefits:

  • Landscaping adds an average of 14.8% to a home’s value.
  • Homes with attractive landscaping sell quicker - by as much as Five to Six weeks.
  • As home improvements go, landscaping is an excellent investment. Recovery value at selling time can be 100 to 200%.
  • Landscaping enhances property values, which add to the community’s tax base.
  • Proper placement of shade trees and evergreen windbreaks reduces cooling and heating costs.


Environmental Benefits

  • Trees moderate urban “heat islands” created by extensive paved areas. Lawns cool a home at the same rate as a one-ton air conditioner. Lawns also trap dust, absorb noise and provide outdoor living areas for children and adults.
  •  One tree removes 26 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air every year and releases about 13 pounds of oxygen-enough for a family of four on a daily basis.
  • Plants reduce noise pollution up to 50 percent.
  • Plants control runoff and erosion. They allow soil to absorb water, returning it to aquifers. Decreased runoff means less urban flooding.
  • Lawns slow the spread of wildfires to homes.
  • Plants provide food and habitat for wildlife, which contributes to biodiversity and a healthier environment.
  • Landscaping creates green space for human rest, recreation and renewal.
