Plants and trees are known to decrease carbon dioxide levels indoors. Other benefits of having live plants in the house include naturally increasing humidity, decreasing dust accumulation and they can also assist in reducing indoor pollutants, like nitrogen dioxide, benzene and hexane, along with other volatile organic compounds.

Having greenery around can also reduce stress levels and is an easy way to incorporate nature indoors.

One example of a home that worked trees around the property into a central focus of a renovation project is called the Sycamore House.

From Aaron Neubert Architects, this 1950′s Californian home had plans for an addition to enlarge the living space, however adored sycamore trees around the odd shaped lot called for a clever layout. One large tree was actually located where some of the construction was to occur, so the homeowner and architectural team kept an open mind about the new plans.
