Environmental Impact     

Plants that are native to your environment will help benefit the natural habitats for animals living in your local area.  These plants will also require less upkeep, and will thrive and flourish, while more exotic plants will require more maintenance and water, costing you more.  Other ways that landscaping can impact the environment is that all plants reduce pollution in the air by releasing oxygen and absorbing carbon dioxide.

Encourages Wildlife      

Any flowers, plants, bushes and trees in your yard will attract birds and insects that are natives to your areas.  This will allow them to be able to make natural habitats, store food and to be sheltered from predators.  Many natural functions such as the production of honey by bees could be taking place from the landscaping that you have on your property.

Functionality        

Landscaping will help you to make use of your land.  If you choose to build structures to be included alongside your landscaping, you will be making your property useful.  Patio structures, fire pits, vegetable gardens and even flower beds will improve your land and help it to become functional in the process.
