Live Green, Vive Verde by Investing in Landscaping!

Our next post in the Live Green, Vive Verde series is all about saving on your energy bills through landscaping!  According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can "improve your home's comfort and lower your energy bills" with the right landscaping, tailored to your home, your needs, and your geography! The Department of Energy also has an awesome infographic with quick tips on exactly how you can consume less energy with simple landscaping tips! Here are some of our favorites:

Help Save Water by...

1) Grouping plants with similar watering needs together

2) Using mulch to keep plant roots cool and prevent quick evaporation of water

3) Raising your lawn mower cutting height to reduce the amount of water needed to maintain your lawn

 

Help Save Energy by...

1) Planting trees and shrubs that add shade to your home

2) Planting ground cover, which will help to cool air before it hits your home

3) Using trellises with creeping or climbing vines to add visual interest and cooling shade to a deck or patio

Eastmorland Neighborhood

Eastmorland is a residential enclave of about 3,400 homes bordered by Milwaukee Street, Stoughton Road, and Cottage Grove Road. Built in the 1950s as a community of starter homes, the average house has about 1,000 square feet of living space on the main floor. Well-made homes, with oak floors and cabinets, make this a highly desirable neighborhood for purchasing an affordable, quality starter home. What can't be seen on a drive-through (or bike-through) of the neighborhood is the tremendous spirit of this area. The Eastmorland Community Association (ECA) began in 1957 and has been instrumental in working to improve the neighborhood and to build relationships among neighbors.
