A well-designed landscape has some obvious benefits, like providing a beautiful, peaceful oasis that accents your home. But your landscaping can also help keep money in your wallet!
Start by putting the right plants in the right place, using mulch, and irrigating only when your plants need water. All these things can help conserve water and save you money on your water bill.
But did you know your landscaping can also help reduce your electric bill? For example, planting the right trees near the east and west sides of your home will shade the house and reduce your A/C bill in the summer. Shading your A/C unit can also help for more savings.
