The benefits of landscaping

Good landscaping companies understand that landscaping is about more than just making your property look pleasing to the eye. It’s also about your quality of life. For example: if much of your backyard is a simple, flat, concrete patio, you can reduce the average temperatures in and outside of your house by replacing it with a fresh patch of grass. Planting trees on the south and west sides of your property can add further natural cooling to your home by blocking out the sun when it would otherwise be beaming directly through your windows. Lower temperatures in summer means less electricity needed for air conditioning – which means more money stays in your pocket in the long run.

Studies have also shown that simply looking at plant life can reduce blood pressure. Trees and flowers in your newly-landscaped yard will attract birds, bees, and butterflies. Just spending time in comforting outdoor areas contributes to a happy general mood and a healthy state of mind.

Landscape lighting

Adding outdoor lighting for your landscapes is a simple way to increase your home value. Illuminating the areas near entryways and walking paths not only looks impressive, it also improves safety. If you have to go outside during the night, you don’t need to worry about tripping over something or falling because you didn’t see a step or a railing. 

Lighting is also an important deterrent against potential burglars. At the end of the 19th century, cities began installing electric street lights to combat night crime. The mere presence of light takes away hiding places from criminals. The typical burglar wants to break in, take something, and leave before anyone knows he’s there. If he sees bright LEDs all around your house at night, he’ll think twice about trying to break in.

The landscaping team you can count on

The exact definition of “landscaping” can mean different things to different people, so we offer high versatility in terms of the types of features we can create for your property. In addition to water features and walkways, we also do mulch bed installations for adding flowers, bushes, and trees.

We do not  believe that other landscaping companies compare to Turf & Tree Worx when it comes to engineering new projects, or performing routine maintenance. You can contact us through our website, or by phone at (262) 675-2600.

Affordable Landscaping

Affordable Landscaping

Winter is coming to a close, and spring is on its way. Now is the time to upgrade your yard with simple, affordable landscaping projects. The current recession has been tough all around.  With so many people short on money, we’re all looking for places to tighten our belts. Turf & Tree Worx has been in business for 30 years. We offer quality work at reasonable prices for local homeowners. If you’re looking for a big visual improvement for a comparatively small investment, call Turf & Tree Worx at (262) 675-2600

Why is landscaping a good idea? It’s much more than just making your yard look nice. Landscaping projects can improve your home’s curb appeal, and raise its overall value.

Landscaping improves property value

Some affordable landscaping is a great thing to do when you’re trying to sell your home. Studies have shown that improving your home’s yard with landscaping projects can raise its value by up to 15%. The current real estate market is hotter than we’ve seen in decades. Even with home prices quickly rising in Wisconsin, prospective homebuyers from all over the world are still making cash offers well above asking price – sometimes by $100,000 or more. 

Whether you want to start a new project from scratch, or maintain existing landscaping structures, Turf and Tree Worx will handle all your affordable landscaping needs.

A few landscaping ideas

  • Front Walkway: Most homes connect to the sidewalk with a plain walkway of flat concrete slabs. Turf & Tree Worx landscapers can replace your boring walkway and replace it with a handcrafted work of art. You’ll impress your neighbors and passersby. More importantly, potential homebuyers will see it as soon as they arrive to look at the house.
  • Mulch beds: Give your yard a facelift: replace a section of ordinary grass with flowers or bushes planted in a new mulch bed. Then, define the edges with brick to limit soil loss through erosion.

Landscaping and tree services

A new mulch bed is also an ideal place to plant a brand new tree. Planting large, mature trees on a property have been shown to raise property values at a rate similar to landscaping. Further savings through trees can be achieved by planting them on the east and west sides of your house. Trees blocking out sunlight during the morning and evening will keep your home comparatively cool. This means less air conditioning and lower electric bills for your family.

Contact us today at (262) 675-2600 for landscaping services throughout Washington, Ozaukee, northeast Waukesha, and northern Milwaukee County, WI.

Keep your home in its best possible condition

Landscaping maintenance is an essential part of general home upkeep. All outdoor structures suffer from weathering over time. The sun, the wind, and the rain all do incremental damage that adds up over the course of months and years. Stone and metal structures eventually decay, and wood needs to be replaced even more frequently. Periodic repairs to these outdoor components will keep your home in prime condition, whether you’re looking to sell your home, or just to live in it.

Patios

A well-built patio adds additional usable space to the outside of your home. Host events for friends and family, perform arts and crafts, or take a moment for yourself and enjoy fresh air while you scroll through your timeline.

Outdoor cooking and fire

Spend more time outdoors during the spring and summer with an outdoor cooking area. Do all your prep and cleanup in one place with an outdoor oven, stove, counter, and sink. Get that comfy campfire feeling whenever you want with a dedicated outdoor fire pit.

Artisan walkways

A project that can immediately improve both home value and curb appeal is a handcrafted walking path from the sidewalk to the front door of your home. Instantly impress any potential homebuyers!

Retaining walls

The main purpose of a retaining wall is to keep the soil around it in place. Over time, natural erosion can cause loss of soil, meaning fewer nutrients for your lawn. As an added benefit, the improved functionality and aesthetics of your property after building the wall will likely increase its value.

Draining solutions

Redirect rainwater away from your home and lawn so your yard doesn’t turn into a big puddle on rainy days.

Keep your trees trimmed

Along with keeping your yard regularly trimmed and free of weeds, the care you show the trees on your property can have an effect on your land value – positive or negative.
