01 Aug The Benefits of Hiring Lawn Care Services
People love greenery, even if they’re not “outdoorsey” types. It’s hardwired into our DNA. That’s why people love to live in places that have a green lawn, a friendly tree nearby, and beautiful views out the windows.
Did you know that being close to green spaces has a powerful effect on our psychology? It lowers stress, which contributes to better health, happier relationships, and longer life expectancy.
However, as much as people love greenery, they don’t always love taking care of it. Maintaining a healthy yard can be a lot of work, and it persists day in and day out.
Yardwork is an investment
Taking care of landscaping includes expense and work. First of all, there’s the cost of water, which can be as much as half of your monthly utility costs. Additionally, incidental expenses, like cleaning fallen branches, or installing a new sprinkler system, can be sudden and costly. However, the biggest thing that goes into your landscape is just regular maintenance. This includes mowing and fertilizing the lawn, cleaning up fallen leaves and dead branches, weeding and pruning shrubbery and flowers, and keeping everything watered properly.
Landscaping raises property values
Studies have found that the presence of a mature tree on your property 2% of more to the value of your home (depending on where you live,) accruing hundreds of dollars of value with each year. Having a tree in your yard also reduces the turnover time on a house sale, which is an important factor to remember if you rent out your property and you frequently have to secure new tenants.
And then there’s lawncare. Most professionals estimate that a green, growing lawn is one of the most useful investments you can make in your property, with a 100-200% return on your investment. Furthermore, a lawn can increase the value of your home by as much as 15%.
Increase your curb appeal
The reason that trees and greenery have such an effect on a property’s value and on buying trends is because they have an immediate positive psychological effect on us. And when people are looking for a new place to live, first impressions are everything. A well-maintained yard creates the impression of proactive and regular care. At a glance, we can immediately gauge whether a place is abandoned, or lovingly maintained.
