Going-green

Green is the new black.  And when you landscape your yard there are a number of ways to go green.

One of the easiest ways to go green when you landscape is to plant trees.  By planting trees you can help reduce greenhouse gases and help cool the environment.  For example, 100 trees removes 235 lbs of pollutants each year and 1 acre of trees produce 260 lbs of oxygen each year.  The best part is that by strategically planting shade trees by your home, you will decrease your utility bills by as much as 35% in the summer and 25% in the winter.

So, when landscaping your yard, ask for a sustainable yard.  It’s good for your wallet and good for the environment!
