Investing in professional landscaping improvements is a good place to put your money for many reasons. A quality landscape design can increase the value and marketability of your property and reduce your utility costs. It can enhance your lifestyle and provide a healthier environment around your home. It can also protect your property from erosion and protect our ground water.
Because soil sediment makes up most of the pollutant carried by runoff, and most of the phosphates and pesticides entering our waters are attached to sediment, reducing erosion is of great value to our environment.
Through proper plant selection and location, and by constructing terraces and retaining walls, landscaping can control erosion by holding soil in place and reducing runoff.
