You’ll Never Guess Why Landscaping Makes People Work Better
Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 31 January , 2018
Thoughtful landscaping can be immensely important for your home or business, but did you know that it can be just as important for the environment?
We’ll talk about it in this issue.
Did you know that well-cared-for trees can actually decrease the crime rate?
According to a study by the U.S. Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest, “…large street trees can reduce crime by signaling to a potential criminal that a neighborhood is better cared for and, therefore, a criminal is more likely to be caught,” said Geoffrey Donovan.
Interestingly, the study found that that smaller yard trees could add to the risk of crime by providing hiding spaces for potential criminals.
Other Hugely Positive Effects of Landscaping
Landscaping preserves natural resources. From helping the soil, air, and water, healthy plants have a directly positive effect on nearby natural resources.
Retaining walls provide a host of positive services. Whether its keeping soil from eroding or preventing rocks from falling down and causing significant damage, retaining walls are especially helpful in making your home environment a safe one.
Plants, trees and grass can have tremendous physical and psychological benefits. Research has shown us that many people experience noticeable stress relief and healing while enjoying plants in their yards or even when just looking at them through a window.
Businesses can also benefit from good landscaping. For example, commercial offices with high-quality landscapes often command higher rental rates. In addition, workers who can view plants and nature from their desks are known to be more productive.

That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
