A magnificent tree
In these times of excessive heat, just before the rainy season in the Yucatan Peninsula, the heat puts us to the limit. 2019 has been a particularly hot year, with thermal sensations never experienced before.
While many choose to use the air conditioning, there are greener ways to cool your home in Valladolid Yucatán.
According to Tree People, planting a tree on the south and west side of your property prevents it from being exposed to the sun’s rays and lowers the interior temperature by up to 50%.
There are plenty of trees from the region that you can use, but if you are a lover of fruits you can choose to have citrus, plum, mango, avocado, caimitos, guayas, etc.
Does a tree add value to my property in Valladolid Yucatan?
From the real estate point of view, having trees near your property can increase the value of it by up to 15%.
You can also use trees to block a noisy street, dust, unpleasant views, etc. If there is a part of your house with a less-than-perfect view, a garden can change the game.
Having trees near our home has also proven to reduce stress and violence. The shade makes it more pleasant to walk through the streets, and it provides a beautiful view.
Your home is much more than the walls that make it up, having a beautiful garden always adds value to the property.
The ideal time to plant trees is when the rainy season is about to start. Local trees are the best bet, as they are used to the periods of rain and drought in the Yucatan. Ask your gardener about the best options for your house.
