Quality landscaping services help to transform your yard and other outdoor areas into a more enjoyable space where you can spend time with friends and family. According to PR Newswire, about 24% of U.S. homeowners say they spend more time in their yards since the COVID-19 pandemic occurred. Here’s a closer look at a few of the many ways that landscaping can add more life to your space.
1. Aesthetic Beauty
A well-designed landscaping plan can help to beautify your yard and boost the aesthetic appeal of your home. Trees, shrubs, and flower gardens are just a few of the many elements that landscaping companies can use to transform your yard into the ideal outdoor space. Fountains, statues, and reflecting ponds can make great use of water resources, and specific plants can add fragrance that stimulates your sense of smell.
2. More Functional Landscape
Hardscaping is a landscaping term for retaining walls, walkways, and patios that incorporate stone, brick, and other hard substances. Hardscaping can help to shape your yard and create useful outdoor spaces that did not exist before. Landscaping services can sculpt your yard and convert it into a much more functional landscape that supports your desire to enjoy time outdoors.
3. Greater Privacy
You can enjoy time outdoors without having to be subject to prying eyes. Landscaping services can plant trees, shrubs, and bushes that help to screen out neighboring properties. Passersby on roadways and sidewalks could see well-groomed trees and shrubs instead of your favorite outdoor spaces. If you’re looking for more privacy, a retaining wall addition can act as a fence between you and your neighbors.
4. Natural Shade
Natural shade can help improve the comfort of your time outdoors and make your home feel much cooler while you’re indoors. Planting trees and hedges can provide your home and outdoor spaces with shade. A cooler home gives you lower utility bills and shaded outdoor areas are more comfortable on otherwise hot and sunny summer days.
