Have you ever noticed that the people with the best yards often tend to be the most successful in life? At Action Lawn & Landscape LLC. We list the top 3 reasons why successful people maintain a great-looking yard.
It’s All about Appearance
Successful people understand that it only takes moments to make a first impression. When gaining clientele and building a lucrative empire, image can mean everything. It’s the same with a lawn. Your yard is the first thing people notice when they come to your home. If you have weeds sprouting instead of flowers and have overgrown grass cluttered with bicycles, old cars, a junk pile, and more, anyone who takes a glimpse will think negatively towards you as the owner.
On the other hand, a well-groomed yard with aesthetically pleasing pavers, eye-catching flowerbeds, and decorative rocks or bark will give the impression of a prosperous home life.
Increased Real Estate Value
Did you know that a great yard actually increases your real estate value? A successful individual realizes this crucial fact. Homes surrounded with lovely trees, colorful flowerbeds and automatic sprinkler systems draw more appeal than homes without.
Think about it. If you had the choice of picking between two identical houses—one with dead grass and no trees and one with lush flowers, a great irrigation system, and sky-reaching, beautiful trees, which one would you pick?
Relax—a Good Lawn Can Relieve Your Stress
People who are successful know how to live a balanced life—this includes finding time to relax. There’s something about a grassy area that invokes a feeling of calmness, serenity, and relaxation. Simply lying in the grassy shade underneath a graceful Weeping Willow tree, or spending time gardening can do a lot to lift a person’s spirits and to relieve stress.
Maintaining a great yard is also good for your health. Successful people realize that when they’ve been sitting at a desk or making phone calls all day, it’s important to take time to do something different. Putting your hands in dirt and digging to make something beautiful is a great way to step away from the stresses of the modern world. All the moving around also gets your blood moving, which is good for your heart.
