A Gallup Survey reported 62% of all U.S. homeowners felt that investing in their lawns and landscaping was as good or better than other home improvements. The investment recovery rate is 100-200% for landscape improvements, compared to a deck or patio that will recover 40-70%.

Attractive and well maintained landscaping adds 15% to a home’s value according to real estate sources.

Its yearly cycles of growth and color change lift human spirits and link urban inhabitants with their countryside heritage.
