We all know the property market has been up for a good while now. But did you know that your garden can add value to your property?
It is important to choose the right trees and plants for your property. A leafy neighbourhood will add value to your property as the trees improve the living conditions by shading out the Summer heat, store carbon and recycle oxygen. Many trees are also visually appealing and change colour and appearance with the seasons.
However while trees do lots of good, they can also be a maintenance nightmare if chosen poorly, planted too close to your home or other buildings, or if they eventually block access or a view.
The best way to avoid this is to choose named varieties that grow to a known height and width that matches the space they will be planted in.
Deciduous trees, losing their leaves in Autumn and Winter, area great choice for suburban areas as they allow sunlight to filter into gardens during Winter and many protect houses from fire.
