Lawn and Patio Services Making Your Lawn Rise and Shine
February 9, 2015
Landscaping services for your lawn and patio may not seem like they are necessary, strictly speaking. However, there are many benefits to hiring a landscaping company for you and your household. Properly maintaining your lawn and patio (among other areas of your home) is a neverending job. It keeps many a homeowner busy — and an industry booming. The landscaping and hardscaping services industry in the U.S. is set to earn $80 billion by 2015. There is a visible demand for landscaping and it shows no signs of waning.
There are several reasons why you should hire landscaping companies for your lawn and patio needs. Of them, here are three to get you well on your way to choosing the right company for you:
- Save on your energy bills: Heat and air conditioning expenses can run high, especially during the winter and summer, respectively. With landscaping services, you will find your energy bills become much smaller. Plants situated outside doors and windows can provide significant shade, which in turn can reduce the use of A/C units. For example, by placing a plant near an A/C unit outside, you can increase the unit’s efficiency by as much as 10%.
- Reduce noise pollution: Noise pollution can be a major annoyance, especially in smaller neighborhoods. Planting trees and other plants near your home is, believe it or not, an efficient and organic way of reducing bothersome noise. Good landscaping can also reduce allergens such as ragweed.
- Make your home worth more: Lawn repair services can significantly increase your home’s value. A recent study has shown that landscaping services can boost the recovery value of a home by as much as 200%! A house or commercial building can automatically improve its value by acquiring the services of lawn and patio companies.
Whether you want to make your house look nicer, reduce noise, or increase its value come selling time, landscaping services are just the thing to make your home feel more homely.
