But if you have that awesome outdoor space and the summer months have rolled around, it could be time to get professional landscape artists in. They’ll be able to tidy things up by; tree pruning, tree lopping, stump grinding, planting new trees and flowerbeds and clearing away any mulch or earth.
Landscaping will Help the Environment
Keeping your trees and plants healthy plus thriving in your garden, will produce great benefits for the environment around you. Grass and trees capture dust and smoke particles, which will remove carbon dioxide and produce more oxygen. A really interesting fact is that one healthy tree will supply enough oxygen for four people in a day!
Grass and Trees Can Cool Temperatures
A tidy grass lawn will be cooler than cement, asphalt or even soil. Having trees planted in the right areas around your home or business, will provide cooling shade and actually help you lower bills as you can use the air-conditioning less. Experts reckon; having the shade of a tree at the right point next to your home, can lower the temperature of your attic by up to 40%!
Having a Landscaped Garden Will Improve Your Mood and Quality of Life

Studies have shown that just walking through a natural environment or living in a neighbourhood with green areas can decrease stress, improve attention and memory and therefore reduce healthcare costs. If you have your own garden, even better – you can get some exercise looking after it yourself or get expert arborists in to help you with the work.
