Benefits of Adding Trees to Your Landscape

Are you searching for ways to enhance your landscape and make it more inviting? At Purple Care, our landscaping experts recommend adding trees to your yard. Read on to learn about the various benefits of adding trees to your property. 

Lower Your Cooling Costs  

Depending on what trees you plant and where you plant them, you can reduce your cooling bills by as much as 20% during summertime. Trees provide shade and block the sun from hitting your house, which helps it stay significantly cooler during heatwaves.  

Make Your Yard More Comfortable 

On hot summer days, sometimes you can’t stand to stay outside for too long. Trees are a great way to combat the heat and help you enjoy outdoors. They are known to absorb carbon dioxide—which is a heat-trapping greenhouse gas—and release oxygen. This helps to cool down the surrounding environment. Trees also provide plenty of shade to further cool down your yard. They help you escape the sun and enjoy gardening, relax in a hammock, or play outside games with your children.  

During winter, they also help to block the wind, keeping your yard comfortable as it can be year-round! 

Provide Food  

There is nothing quite as satisfying as harvesting fruit and vegetables in your own yard. Fruit trees are beautiful, provide fresh produce, improve soil quality, and don’t require intensive gardening year after year.  

We recommend considering the following fruit trees for your yard

  • Fig trees  

  • Apple trees  

  • Orange trees  

  • Lemon trees 

  • Cherry trees  

  • Plum trees  

  • Peach trees  

  • Pear trees  

Reduce Sounds  

If you live in a busy city or near a busy road, you are probably no stranger to constant noise. Many people don’t know this, but trees are a great way to drown out all of the commotion around you. They can absorb some of the noise and help you enjoy some peace and quiet.  

Improve Your Surrounding Environment 

Trees can improve the environment in many ways. They trap greenhouse gases, release oxygen, filter water, filter air, protect a property against floodwater, and convert sunlight into energy. They can also provide food and shelter to local animals and organisms. If you are looking for a way to do your part to help the environment, planting trees is definitely a great idea.  

Increase the Value of Your Property 

Research has shown that potential buyers are more likely to be attracted to a home with trees. The value of your property can be increased by up to 20% with the installation of trees. If you are looking to sell, make sure your landscape has plenty of trees to enhance its curb appeal and entice buyers.
