Many Uncommon Benefits of Trees in Landscaping
Many homeowners consider shrubbery and hedging a must-have with any beautiful landscaping design but more and more homeowners are discovering the benefits of adding trees to the mix. Whenever you want to create something truly unique and attractive on your property, one way to do so is by adding impressive and beautiful plants. With a variety of beautiful blooms, well-placed and trimmed shrubbery, and a few key trees, you could transform your outdoor space into something magical.
A study performed in 2013 by the U.S. Forestry Service found that trees in urban areas are responsible for removing as little as nearly 5 metric tonnes all the way up to 64.5 metric tonnes of pollution from the air, depending on the location. This is comparable to a reduction in human mortality by one person in every 365,000 people. Put simply, every tree that you plant and cultivate is a significantly positive change for the world around you and clients will enjoy seeing you be more active in “green” practices.
With the Australian sun hotter now than ever, trees provide a source of enjoyable shade that can be utilised at key points around your property. If you have benches and other areas for resting set up on your property, one way to keep guests comfortable is to provide a natural source of shade for those areas during the hottest hours of the day. Consider planting advanced trees at points that provide optimal shade during as much of the day as possible so guests remain comfortable and can sit in relative relaxation when moving through your property.
One great way to cut down wind, which can damage properties over time and allow air contaminants onto a property, is to plant trees at strategic points throughout the landscaping. During the rare sand storm, this is especially beneficial because it can significantly reduce the amount of cleaning needed after such an event. The air around your property will simply feel cleaner and clearer when you know that there are beautiful trees planted to help filter the air of contaminants.
There are many types of trees that thrive in Australian weather and each can provide a beautiful aesthetic to any landscaping design. Whether you place just a few to break up an otherwise routine design or try something completely out of the norm, you can create something that will make your property look amazing. This should not only increase your curb appeal but it could also attract more potential clients or customers if you manage or own a commercial property.
Being “green” is something that more and more companies have made a priority, and for good reason. After all, the ability to use sustainable resources, reduce your carbon footprint, and otherwise minimise the impact of your company on the environment will make it clear that you are conscious of the world around your business. Clients and customers are more likely to come try your products or services if they feel that you put real investment into developing better and greener alternatives to conventional options.
