Made in the Shade

August 14, 2017

Trees and shrubs—what we in the landscaping business call “woody plants”—aren’t just easy on the eyes. These beauties can also reduce your utility bill, increase your property value, provide you with privacy, and shield you from the summer sun and winter wind. Really, what’s not to like?

Get the Most from Your Landscape

Shade trees protect you from the elements, which can significantly reduce heating and cooling bills and minimize wear and tear on your home’s exterior. Our designers know just how and where to place these trees on your property to get the most benefits. What’s more, Arborist News reports tall leafy trees can help add as much as 15% to your home value.

A Living Screen

From vibrant lilacs, to stunning hydrangeas, to brilliant viburnum and burning bush in fall, shrubs can add tremendous color to your landscape. When planted in groupings or rows, they can also provide you with the kind of privacy many homeowners crave. In fact, according to a recent National Association of Realtors survey, privacy from neighbors remains at the top of home-buyers’ most-wanted feature list.
