The more you plant, the more you can make Scottsdale green, both in terms of vegetation and energy efficiency. These are the benefits of planting more vegetation in your area:
Energy Savings – If you plant shade vegetation strategically around your home, you can provide your home with relief from the hot summer sun. This trend has been growing over the years, and city governments are planting more vegetation to shade government buildings. Native vegetation is much more well-equipped to handle the heat and the sunlight than our home and building materials, which break down over time. In addition, the shade will help keep your home cooler, making it more energy efficient and saving you money. Give your AC a break – plant a tree!
Bettering the Environment – Phoenix, Scottsdale, and the surrounding areas are full of concrete that absorbs and holds the heat. This has changed our climate due to the heat bubble it has created. By planting more vegetation, you can help to balance the environment and restore a less harsh climate. Plants convert carbon dioxide into oxygen during photosynthesis, and higher levels of oxygen have major implications for our health and for the environment.
