Gardening is similar to landscaping in that it involves design and maintenance. Nevertheless, gardening mainly focuses on cultivating plants or flowers within a space. Landscaping caters to the bigger picture. A landscaper may design and plan for a garden of any size, but a gardener is still needed to do the “dirty work,” including planting, fertilizing, weeding, cultivating, and harvesting in season. Landscaping and gardening have a long list of benefits Planting in a garden burns 177 calories in 45 minutes, weeding burns 157 calories in the same amount of time. Just five minutes of gardening exercise in the great outdoors can noticeably improve mood and self-esteem. Gardening can support physical rehabilitation by retraining muscles and improving strength and coordination, according to the American Horticultural Therapy Association. One 25 foot tree in a garden can reduce overall heating and cooling costs by up to 10%. High-quality landscaping can speed the sale of a home by an estimated six weeks. A 5% investment in the value of a home for landscaping can yield up to 150% ROI—more profitable than other household upgrades like kitchen remodeling. Large trees can increase the perceived value of a home by 2.2%. Hardscapes can return the investment of landscaping projects at 100%-300%.
