Who doesnโ€™t love beautiful plants and trees around the house? or even a well-manicured hedge? Very pretty, right? ๐Ÿก๐Ÿก๐Ÿก
.
But is it such a good idea from a healthy home point perspective? If I have to ask, you probably guessed it, itโ€™s not ideal. Why?
.
Trees and plants that are close to buildings:
.
โ˜˜๏ธ may have invasive root systems which can block drain pipes and assist in increasing moisture ingress into the property
.
๐Ÿ€ often shed their leaves onto the roof and can easily block gutters which can lead to overflow and subsequent moisture ingress into the wall or roof cavity
.
โ˜˜๏ธ may compromise subfloor ventilation by blocking subfloor vents and thus increasing moisture levels under the house
.
๐Ÿ€ inhibit airflow around the building envelope and block sunlight thereby slowing down the drying process and increasing moisture levels in the property, which in humid climates like Sydney and Central Coast can often lead to condensation
.
๐Ÿ€ may compromise foundations and/or lead to water getting into the subfloor because they are often automatically watered with sprinkler systems
.

It is best to keep your plants and trees away from the building envelope to avoid potential moisture and mould issues. If you already have them, then trimming them back is essential as well as seizing to water the grounds adjacent to building foundations unless a good moisture barrier/membrane is in place.

Even in Darmstadt (home of the Passive House Institute), external wall insulation retrofits arenโ€™t always done as well as they could be... like this missed section around the box!
