What is Residential Landscaping?

Quite often we overlook the small things that make huge impacts. One of the best investments that you can make to your home is investing in a residential landscaping company to blend your home’s style into your outdoor living space. At Total Package Landscape, we are known for many things: pest control, hardscape/outdoor living, mowing but we are also known as being a top pick for any homeowners who are looking for residential landscaping. 

Residential landscaping consists of creating or enhancing the gardens at your home with the addition of plants, edging, mulch, etc. At your estimate you will meet with our residential landscaping supervisor to discuss all faucets of your residential landscaping. During your meeting with the residential landscaping supervisor we will review your property, hear your wishes and provide you with a residential landscaping design that is going to increase the value of your property as well as supporting your well-being and quality of life. (studies show that having an aesthetically please landscape will enhance your sense of well-being!)

Let’s talk about some other benefits of residential landscaping –

  • As strange as it may sound – having grass around your home will actually radiate cooler temperatures around the property which will help to lower your air-conditioner. (who doesn’t want to save on their electric bill?!?)
  • Tall trees that are strategically planted on the south and west side of your home provide shade during the hottest times of the day thus keeping attic temperatures by as much as 40 degrees. (WHOA!)
  • Trees and grass, as well as most plants help to remove dust and smoke particles from the air.
  • Trees (and plants) supply enough oxygen for four people daily.
  • Plantings act as storm water runoff buffers – reducing the amount of pollutants that end up in nearby bodies of water.
  • Did you know that just looking at a plant is shown to reduce blood pressure?
  • Spending time in a natural environment (even your backyard) improves attention and memory.
  • Increase your home’s market value
