Ecopsychology is the human relationship to nature and the need for this connection. If homes are to be a place to relax and relieve stress, priority should be given to gardens and landscaping, creating a strong link between the home and the natural environment. Suburban homes can utilize landscaping to provide privacy from neighbors and create an environment with a sense of peace and tranquility.
Landscaping increases property values and saves money! A well-designed and maintained landscape can add 15%-20% to the resale value of a home. Energy efficient landscaping can also save up to 30% yearly on heating bills and cooling costs, while lowering your outdoor watering needs by as much as 80%, thus reducing the time spent on yard maintenance.
