    allthough we will never always agree on everything thank you for posting this

    allow me to put my 02 cent s in

    this is why i read lawnsite

    i get bored debating the merits of mowers... trucks and equitment..

    this is a great article

    If i had a dollar for every homebuilder who stripped away so much of the landscaping that someone had to put it back in... a dollar for every person who bought land... walked it and placed their HOUSE on the most perfect spot...

    i wouldn't need to work..I'm no real estate expert... but a few well placed trees of substance and size make a property not only more attractive but more valueable as well...

    look at any magazines discussing homes of substance... look at the most expensive listings and tell me what you see

    TREES...Details. Well thought out driveways....and walkways
    Details around the front door and parking area that allow you to know where to park and walk...

    Most builders by me offer 1 acre cookie cutter mostly treeless 2% grade mcmansions

    want to sell one when all 10 on the block look the same.... Curb appeal

    Thanks for the article

    Can't say I read every post on this thread.

    Can say that I often tell commercial prospects that"

    "Your front lawn and landscape is really thetrue front lobby of your business"

    ... and I say it because it's true -goes to curb appeal.
