How Your Garden Can Give You More Home Privacy
For many homeowners, home is a place where you can relax and be away from the world. However, that relaxation can easily be disrupted by a noisy neighbor or busy side street. When looking to increase the privacy of your home, homeowners may look to investing in expensive fence installation.
However, there is another solution to your home privacy issues that you may not have considered: landscape design.
Here are a few ways you can enhance your landscape while making your home the sanctuary you deserve.
Planting a private hedge may be one of the best solutions for creating privacy for your home. These hedges go around the perimeter of your home, similar to a fence. However, these hedges need constant care, and require regular trimmings. If you’re looking for a more picturesque look, try planting layers of plants with different heights in a cluster. If you do not want to do a lot of lawn maintenance, consider planting a few trees in around your yard. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reported that trees can reduce noise by up to 50%, replacing that noise with quiet, pleasant sound.
In addition to privacy, intuitive landscaping placement can help save you money all year round. If you properly placed and maintain your garden, your home will be provided with excellent wind protection, which will help reduce heating costs during the colder months. During the summer months, landscaping can reduce your air conditioning costs up to 50% by shading the windows and walls according to the American Public Power Association.
There are plenty of reasons you want privacy in your home, but none of them should force you to be separate from nature. Landscaping can be a great way to turn your home into a relaxing sanctuary, without having to sacrifice the view of a perfect lawn. Contact us today!
