For most of us, a good landscape means a wholesome scenery of nice, lush green grass with some pretty plantations around the corner and really cool water features and that is true; landscapes are a form of arts and landscape designers Perth work hard to create these feats of outdoor arts. However, aesthetics aren’t the only thing your landscapes bring you; did you know that the very fundamental reason why landscapes are so important to begin with is the environmental benefit of it?
Here are a few environmental benefits you get from having a good landscape around your property.
Keep Things Cool
On a hot day, concrete and asphalt get heated up real quick and make it even more unbearable outside. Grass covered soil is generally cooler and the more area you have covered by grass, the cooler your property’s surroundings would be. And if you add trees to the equation, your landscaped area becomes somewhat of a natural air conditioner around your place.
Air brings with it a certain amount of dust and other pollutants such as smoke; grass can trap dust from the air and keep it from reaching your property. Grass also produces oxygen since it is a plant at the end of the day, which makes a great way to keep the environment of your property clean.
After a heavy rain, water can gather in your property and result in a flood which can hinder your movement and can even enter inside your place. A healthy lawn can absorb large bodies of water, which makes them a great way to drain puddles before water can stagnate and start to smell bad. Grass also keeps bare soil from getting eroded by water.
