Is Your Shrubbery Out of Control? – Asks the Atlanta Home Inspector

Crazy Atlanta home inspection photosWhether or not you consider shrubbery a work of art or just plain work to keep it maintained, there are a few things to keep in mind about where it should be planted.

While inspecting homes in the Atlanta Georgia area, it is common for us to find shrubbery growing  too close to a home’s siding, moisture collects and can cause deterioration. Algae, mildew and mold growth can also occur. Of course, there is also the possibility that you are providing a smorgasboard for wood destroying organisms, such as termites. It is also a good idea, to keep shrubbery from growing into your gutters or downspout systems. The overgrown limbs can impede the process of proper drainage.

It is true that shrubbery provides a natural windbreak and shade, which will help with the energy efficiency of a home. The physical features of the shrubbery will determine what type of protection you will receive from the foliage. However, if the shrubbery is not properly maintained, then the problems can outweigh the advantages.

The overgrowth of shrubbery is an item that we always check during home inspections. Make sure to routinely care for your landscape to keep the health and value of your home relevant to current market trends.
