Landscaping with trees not only adds a fantastic look and beneficial shade, but done properly, can increase property values as much as 20 percent. Additionally, if you plant a tree today on the west side of your home, in 5 years your energy bills should fall by 3%. In 15 years, the savings can reach as high as 12% or more.  According to U.S. Department of Agriculture, the net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree is equivalent to ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day!

Trees aren't the only way to save money and beautify your home. Shrubs and cover plants can result in energy savings too. Planting the right shrub in the right place can help lower your energy bills, while also adding beauty, privacy and even wildlife habitat to your backyard. Shrubs can also provide food and shelter to a variety of beneficial backyard wildlife,
including birds, butterflies and honeybees, and are great for sprucing up entranceways.

One of the best features of shrubs is that they can be trimmed and shaped to keep your yard looking great. Adding annuals and other plants within them helps with color, and many shrubs and cover plants themselves will flower. Stop by and let us help you plan what's best for you.
