10 Great Things Landscaping Does For Your Home

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 1 December , 2021

If you have never thought of the benefits of having a beautifully landscaped yard, it’s time to consider!  Landscaping provides numerous benefits beyond simply making your property look “less bare.”  Here are 10 great things you achieve when you work with a landscape designer to create the perfect yard for your home:

  • Provides green space for environmental benefits. One of the biggest benefits of landscaping is that it helps to offset the tremendous amount of “gray space” caused by building numerous houses, roads, sidewalks, and other construction.  Unfortunately, in any crowded area, construction will eventually push most or all of the foliage and plant life out.  However, landscaping can help you reclaim some of that loss by providing you with healthy green spaces to support both plant and animal life.
  • Beautifies your home. Nothing adds curb appeal faster than the right landscaping!  With a proper landscape plan, you can enjoy a beautiful outdoor space as well as add beauty and value to your property.  Why not design such a beautiful yard that others enjoy seeing it, as well?
  • Offers a buffer from pollution. Because plants absorb so much from the air and water, they are nature’s filters.  Green spaces offer a buffer from air and water pollution and help keep your environment healthy.
  • Puts oxygen into the air. Plants literally “breathe out” oxygen, so adding green plants to your space reduces carbon dioxide and increases oxygen–a double benefit!
  • Helps control erosion. Plants don’t just fight air and water pollution.  They also help control soil erosion by holding soil in place against water runoff.  Without plants, erosion can quickly become a problem, but with the right plantings, you can protect your soil for years to come.
  • Helps control water loss. Water loss happens from the soil at a high rate, but with plants, you have more control.  Plants will actually help to conserve water over bare soil, so having them in place helps you do your part to hold on to one of our most precious resources.
  • Provides food and fruit. If you choose to use organic gardening practices, you can literally enjoy the fruits of your labor from your patio or yard.  A wide variety of plants can be incorporated into your landscape that also provides food for your family.
  • Reduces stress. Your yard will become a beautiful oasis from the hustle and bustle of the world when you plan it thoughtfully.  A good landscape designer can help you incorporate all of the elements you want to make your yard your personal resting spot.
  • Provides healthy exercise. Working in the yard is not only healthy, it’s therapeutic!  Watching your plants grow and putting in even a minimum of effort is very satisfying.
  • Promotes family togetherness. Your whole family can come together and enjoy sometime away from devices and television when you have a lovely yard that incorporates something for everyone.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
