Three Benefits of Trees in Landscaping

Trees are an essential component of any outdoor space. Trees add texture, color, and dimension to a home’s exterior. Properly placed trees establish the lines of your home. Garden lines are created where the edge of a plant bed meets another surface material, like mulch, stones, or grass. Trees can frame entrances, add privacy, and make other structures look and feel at home within your landscape’s design. Landscape design, although sequential, is also cyclical, it involves a process of revision and refinement. No matter your goals and experience, the landscape architects and garden designers at Valley LSP can help you pick which trees will work best for your home.

Trees Can Solve Architectural Problems

Properly placed trees can be used to solve design flaws in the layout of your yard. They can become accents, add privacy, define zones of use, provide shade, and contribute to your yard’s vertical definition. Proper tree placement ensures that your home’s exterior will never appear static, flat, or cluttered. The best way to naturally move people to a particular area in your yard is by adding trees.
