As warmer temperatures start returning, do you worry about cooling expenses? Some homeowners like their homes quite chilly, and it can cost a bit in the heat of the summer. So, any method that can save a few pennies will probably come in welcome for anyone in that situation.
If you are planning on staying in the same home for a long period of time, there is a project that you could undertake that will eventually make your home much cooler – planting trees near your home. They both provide shade and release moisture into the air that lowers the air temperature.
Naturally, there is a need to be careful. For one thing, trees that are too close to your home could be at risk of falling on your home. Roots from trees could intrude into your pipes, and falling branches and leaves could cause issues with your roof. This is why you should plan out the placement of the trees well in advance, and once they are grown, keep an eye on them to ensure that they stay healthy.
