Houston is home to hundreds of school campuses and educational facilities across our area. These include public, private, charter, and parochial schools, and range from preschools all the way up to colleges and universities. With each of these educational facilities and campuses, it’s essential to have landscapes that are safe as well as beautiful for students, faculty, and visitors to enjoy. In today’s LMC blog post, we’ll discuss three ways to enhance and improve landscapes on school campuses.
Add Trees For Shade And Beauty
Trees are some of the most important parts of a school campus, as they offer a number of practical and aesthetic benefits. Adding trees to school properties are an important investment with lasting returns. Trees can provide much-needed shade and cooler areas for students to play and relax, especially during the hotter spring and summer months. In addition, they can help cool buildings and lower utility bills, in addition to improving privacy across campus. Overall, school campuses with an abundance of beautiful and healthy shade trees can enjoy a more tranquil and peaceful atmosphere for learning.
Install Seasonal Plants And Flowers
The installation of seasonal plants and flowers across school campuses also offers multiple benefits to schools and educational facilities. In addition to providing stunning beauty and a welcoming environment for students and staff, they can also provide learning opportunities for students. Students can gain hands-on experience in horticulture, botany, weather and environmental science, and entomology through the installation of flowerbeds and landscape gardens.
Promote Healthy Lawns
Finally, school campuses benefit greatly when they have lush, healthy grass for students to enjoy, whether it’s studying on the lawn or playing games. Softer, thick grass provides a safer place for everyone to enjoy, and can help reduce possible injuries or accidents. When lawns are uneven and in poor health, students and faculty can trip and fall, which could result in potential liability claims.
