Landscaping a Place of Play

Landscaping allows you to create the paradise you want. To some this may seem like a luxury, but creating a space that allows you to decompress might actually save your life. According to the American Institute of Stress, stress is the root cause for 60% of all illnesses.

Creating a space that caters to your life, spaces for relaxation, children, barbecuing, vacation fantasy, whatever your dreams and needs may be, landscaping can create a tranquil multi-use space in your backyard that allows you to unload your stress.

Plants are also therapeutic and creating a space with different kinds of plants can cultivate positive energy, cleaner air, and have health benefits you wouldn’t expect. Studies show that trees alone can positively impact decision making patterns, lessen violent tendencies, and relieve stress.

Creating the space you want may do more than increase the value of your time off and health (it gets even better). The addition of healthy, mature trees, for example, can save you money on your bills while also making your property more valuable. The National Tree Benefit Calculator estimates how much a tree is worth in your zip code economically and environmentally based on the tree’s species and size. Click here to try it out.
