More Than Curb Appeal...

At SHADY BROOK FARM, we believe landscape design is about more than curb appeal.

With a well-crafted outdoor space, you can step outside your house and reconnect with your family, your neighbors, or yourself. But you don’t have to take our word for it, researchers Texas A&M University analyzed dozens of academic studies to see how landscaping affects our lives. Here are just a few of the benefits they discovered:

 

  1. Stronger Relationships - Multiple studies revealed that people who spend extended lengths of time outside and around plants tend to have better relationships with others. When we are outside, free from the distractions, we are able to connect with the people we care about.

  2. More Energy - It was also clear that, spending time in natural environments increases energy levels and feelings of vitality. The studies also revealed a large positive effect on overall mental health.

  3. Better Communities - Finally, the research showed that when one home is committed beautifying their landscaping, it sets off a cycle of self-improvement that has positive ripple effects outwards to all sectors of the community.
