Your Lawn & Landscape: It's Worth Thousands $$$$$

Scheiffer 1Even a simple landscape represents thousands of dollars in value. Some landscapes increase property value by as much as $50,000 to $100,000. A 20-year oak, or a full grown magnolia are nearly impossible to actually replace if lost, but they continue to add value to your home as they mature. A single shrub that cost you $150.00 to install 5 years ago may easily be worth 8 to 10 times that amount today. You have a solid, rapidly growing investment in your landscape.

Enhancement residentialButterflies add motion and color to any garden. They love heat and are most active during the hottest part of the day when your song birds have quieted down. As with birds, to attract butterflies you need water; however, they won’t visit your bird bath. You can create small mud patches or shallow puddles containing rocks where they can rest and get a drink near their favorite flowers —or you could go all out and establish a “butterfly bar.” This consists of filling a bucket with sand and burying it to the lip in a sunny part of the garden. Keep it almost filled with water. Rocks or stone walls placed in the sun give butterflies a place to bask and warm themselves.
