Houston is home to hundreds of churches, temples and places of worship throughout the greater metropolitan area. For many, these houses of worship represent community, family, and love, so caring for these properties is a high priority for parishioners. Unfortunately, many Houston area churches and temples find themselves with beautiful interior areas, and poorly maintained exterior spaces. In today's blog post, we will look at four reasons why your place of worship needs quality landscaping and tree care.
Offers Beautiful Area For Community
Having a beautifully maintained landscape offers a safe and pleasant outdoor space for the community to enjoy throughout the year. A house of worship can often be a crown jewel of the community, with lush grass, tranquil gardens, and majestic shade trees. This is especially important for churches or temples in parts of Houston with little green space or few parks nearby.
Increases Outreach Opportunities
A well kept lawn and shaded outdoor area provides the perfect place for churches and temples to host events for parishioners and outreach opportunities for the surrounding community. Churches, temples, and other places of worship can have a stunning outdoor setting to meet and welcome their neighbors and guests on a regular basis.
Improves Property Safety
One of the added benefits to having regular, professional landscape and tree care maintenance is that the church or temple property can become much safer for parishioners and guests. With professional landscaping and tree care, a church is less likely to have falls or injuries occur on their outdoor property due to uneven lawns, tall grass or broken tree limbs. In addition, it can also reduce the threat of invasive rodents and insects on the property.
Provides Cost Savings and Additional Security
Evergreen trees and hedges can help provide additional security, noise reduction, and privacy for church offices and other secured areas of the facility. Also, healthy and well-maintained shade trees can help lower energy costs by providing cooling shade throughout the year.
