Why is Landscaping Important?

Why is Landscaping important? Well, having a perfect looking garden changes the entire look and feel of your home. From outdoor lighting, flower beds, to quality lawn care. A good landscape for your home will have you reaping the benefits, so here are the main reasons why is landscaping important?

It adds value

Professional and bespoke Landscape design from yours truly, RG Contractors will help add more value to your home. Landscaping and lighting can be the difference between selling or not selling your home, and it is estimated that a professional landscaper can increase the property’s value by 10 to 12%, where’s poorly designed yard can actually lower your property’s value.

The Appeal

Why is Landscaping important? Well, having a perfect looking garden changes the entire look and feel of your home.

Having your home perfectly landscaped will make the property look as put together as a man in a well-tailored suit, just like those classy Peaky Blinders from Birmingham. However, it isn’t just about the flower beds, as much as it’s about the shrubbery and trees as well. Don’t overlook the condition of your lawn either, giving all the attention to the flower beds while neglecting the lawn won’t look good – what’s the saying? You can’t polish a turd.

Life’s better being Green

What if I told you that a fresh professional landscape can assist in energy-efficiency, in other words becoming greener for the planet. Our Professional landscaping services can help plan for shade trees, which allows your home to stay cooler in the summer, and also prevents you from having to run your air conditioner.

A properly designed garden can also provide windbreaks, which reduces heating costs in the winter, as well as helping with stormwater management, allowing for proper drainage to prevent flooding or melting snow.


Your beautiful landscape will help you provide you with a comfortable place to sit and relax, and with most of the country being told to stay home more often that is the reason, alone, worth putting effort into your garden.

There are several reasons why landscaping is important, these were just a few. In the meantime, why don’t you try and landscape on your own, while you have some spare time during COVID-19 Lockdown, and when you want to hire an expert – the team at RG Contractors will help you get the job done.
