Landscaping Tips: Making Your Yard Part of Your Home

Your yard can be more than just empty space, it can become a central part of your home and landscaping can make that happen. This doesn’t have to be a grueling or expensive venture on your part, just so you apply some of these landscaping tips.

Function
First of all, determine what your yard is primarily used for. Is it a place for the kids to play, somewhere to grow a garden, or do you see it as a place to ease away the tensions of the day? The answers to these questions will help determine what kind of work needs to be done before you start landscaping.

Another useful tip is to determine how your landscaping can help with energy costs. You may not know it but trees and shrubs can help you cut down on your heating and lighting expenses.

For example trees planted on the south and west can help with shading your house, which helps cut down on air conditioning. If these trees are the kind that shed their leaves (deciduous trees) during the fall, it will allow more light into the house during the winter when it’s most needed. Shrubs planted a few feet away from the foundation also help keep the warm air in and the cold out therefore helping with the heating bills.
