The Greater Good: The Green Value of Landscaping
Plants improve air quality. One tree can remove 26 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere annually, equaling 11,000 miles of car emissions. Landscape plants, including shrubs and turf, remove smoke, dust, and other pollutants from the air.
Proper landscaping reduces soil erosion. A dense cover of plants and mulch holds soil in place. This keeps sediment out of lakes, streams, storm drains and ponds, which helps prevent flooding and improves the quality of our water.
