If you’re looking to improve your landscaping, trees are a perfect option. These hardy plants offer a variety of benefits to any landscape. As you start your spring landscape design, here are just a few ways trees improve your home. 

  1. Lower Utility Costs

There’s a reason people love the comfort of laying in the shade from leafy branches. They offer calm and cooling during summertime and a peaceful warmth in winter. If you plant wisely, their shade can do the same for your home. Plant trees on the south side to provide shade for your home during summer. You can decrease your air conditioning costs by as high as 30 percent. Evergreen trees give shade. When planted on the northwestern side of your home, they help to create a buffer against cold winds, decreasing your heating costs by up to 20 percent!

  1. Makes Your Landscape POP All Year!

Regardless of the season, trees add texture and color to your home. During fall their leaves come to life in vibrant bursts of color. Spruce and boxwoods add texture and variety during winter weather. All different types of trees change and grow over time, making your views different year after year. 

  1. Cuts Down on Noise

Trees also serve as buffers against busy roads and noisy neighbors. Their leaves and trunks help absorb excess noise, creating peaceful retreats in even the most bustling communities. Use professional seasonal pruning throughout the yet to keep your landscape lush and healthy. 

  1. Lowers Pollution, Increases Fresh Air

Trees are the great filters of the earth. They capture particulates, grab gases, and take in carbon monoxide. Just twenty trees will reduce one ton of carbon dioxide and hundreds of pounds of gasses each year. Plant those natural filters near your home and you can breath a little easier. 

  1. Protection for Your Foundation

Those broad leaves of your oaks and sycamores are great barriers against erosion. Like nature’s umbrella, their branches catch and slow rain from eroding your land. The roots keep soil in its place during rainy weather. Slower erosion protects your home from mold, pests, and slipping foundations.

  1. Increased Property Values

People want more than brick and mortar when they buy a home. A beautiful landscape design can increase the value of your home by as much as eleven percent. Add trees and you increase your home value by twenty percent or more!

  1. Privacy with a Natural Touch

If you want some privacy, a natural border of evergreens or conifers provides a gorgeous, growing wall. Choose trees that will grow closer together as they branch out and you’ll have a natural fence for years.
