If you didn’t purchase your new trees for anything but the beauty they will add to your property, you will not be disappointed. There is hardly anything you can add to your yard that will add more aesthetic enhancement than trees—especially ones that bloom in the spring or have a beautiful fall color.
The majority of the time, adding trees to your landscape brings out the most potential for your property’s curb appeal and personal enjoyment.
As soon as you put our trees in your yard, it increases the value of your property. An enjoyable home landscape and big, beautiful trees can increase your property value by as much as 20%.
In addition, new trees provide shelter from wind and erosion, and even provide cooling shade. The Department of Natural Resources estimates that shade trees and evergreen windbreaks can save you up to 25% on your annual air conditioning bills and a 20% reduction in annual fuel bills. Talk about putting some money in your pocket.
There is a big difference between a yard with no trees and one with trees. Just think about how much relief you get in some shade on a hot summer’s day. Not only is shade great to have when it’s blazing hot, but consider these things that some shade can bring as well:
- Reduce your annual energy bill by as much as 25%.
- Reduce sound pollution by as much as 50%.
- Attract wildlife.
- Transform your house into a home.
If you want some privacy in your backyard but you don’t want to put up a fence, using trees is your next best bet. In fact, using trees for privacy instead of a wooden fence is much more attractive anyway, and, they can provide just as much privacy.
If you browse through some of our Arborvitae’s, for example, you’ll find some great options for a privacy line.
