Health Benefits of Landscaping

Landscaping and gardening is a great outdoor activity that benefits both your mental and physical health. Gardening helps you burn calories, reduce blood pressure, and maintain bone density.

For people of all ages, landscaping, and gardening has shown to reduce instances of depression and stress. In older adults, it has shown to reduce the symptoms of dementia as well as encourage community involvement.

Landscaping and gardening are not only good for your home’s appearance, but also for you. Adding yard work does not have to be seen as a chore. If you are planning to hire landscape services, just seeing beautiful greenery can encourage you to spend more time outside which has a number of benefits itself. Get outside and get more involved in your landscaping today.

Environmental Benefits

Landscaping does much more than making the outside of your home look better. It can also help improve the natural world around you. The environmental benefits of landscaping can increase your quality of life at home. Having plants around your home can filter dust and other pollutants out of rainwater. They also can clean the air of smoke and other pollutants. Trees and shrubs have been found to purify toxic soils. This means that planting trees can help increase the quality of your land and allow you to have more useful land. Plants reduce noise pollution, meaning having more greenery around your home can make it quieter and more peaceful for you and your family. The environment will thank you for adding more greenery to your home’s landscape.

Economic Benefits

Landscaping may seem like an expensive endeavor, but it can save you money in the long run. Adding trees to your landscape can provide your home with much more natural shade. The shade provided by the trees can reduce air temperature by up to 6° during the summer. If you have a family that enjoys playing on the pavement, natural shade can reduce the pavement temperature by up to 25°. Well-designed landscaping layouts can reduce air conditioning and heating bill costs.

If you are planning on selling your home soon, landscaping can increase your home value significantly. Just adding to your home’s curb appeal can be beneficial to your home’s value. Planting shrubs close to your home can contribute to insulating your home. This can further reduce your heating costs during the colder months.
