Landscape Design in Arizona: Work With Nature Not Against It

Good Landscape Design is About What Works


If you live in Arizona, landscape design can be a challenge.  Try to use native plants whenever possible.  If it grows here, it will likely do well in your yard.

Don’t Use Invasive Plants in Your Landscape Design

Your neighbors will thank you.  Your city will thank you, and your landscape design company will also thank you.  If you don’t believe that planting the wrong plant can be disastrous, look at the kudzu.  It grows a foot a day and has pretty much eaten the South.

Think About Water Use in Your Landscape Design

Don’t plant a rosebush, which needs a lot of water in an area designed for desert plants, and don’t put a cactus in a rose garden, plant complementary plants together, when planning your landscape design.

When in doubt, call in a professional landscape design service

Landscape Design Part 1: Desert Landscaping

Landscape design is something that can be tailored to particular areas and climates, like the desert Southwest.  This article from About.COM lists some plants that do very well in Arizona.

Desert Plants and Landscape Design

Bougainvillea

These desert plants are great choices for people who don’t want to spend lots of time working in the yard, but want a nice, colorful look in their desert garden.Keep in mind that all of these plants will thrive in the Phoenix area, but not in other parts of Arizona, where we have everything from low desert to high desert and even sub-alpine conditions.

Landscape Design in Arizona

Arizona is a diverse environment for landscape design.  The plants that grow here reflect this bio-diversity.  A bougainvillea would do well down here, but not as well in the White Mountains or the northern end of the state.  Another thing to consider is placement with a bougainvillea.  They do well where they can get a lot of sunshine.  They are also very drought tolerant, but will grow quickly when watered.  While there are several varieties of bougainvillea , the variety with the magenta colored leaves does the best as it is incredibly hardy.  In addition to their hardiness, they are also surprisingly versatile.  You can let them grow into a bush, let them be vines, or even be ground cover to keep weeds out.  Be warned however, that if you let them grow wild, you will need to trim them.

Principles of Landscape Design

Landscaping design operates under various principles, and one of them is how adaptable a plant is to a desert environment.  A professional company would be capable of guiding you on plant selection, placement and many other tips to improve your home’s yard.

Finding a Good Landscape Maintenance Service

A landscape maintenance company is who you hire when you’re trying to improve the exterior of your home.  Regardless of the type of contractor you are looking for, there are certain common characteristics to look for, as this article from The Money Pit magazine shows:

Good Qualities in a Landscape Maintenance Service

The home improvement season is now upon us, a time when many try to find good contractors to take on their projects, but at the same time ushering in the next installment in the ongoing soap opera that homeowners might refer to as Contractors of Our Lives. Few business relationships evoke such intense emotions as the homeowner-contractor bond.

What about those worst contractor nightmares that everyone seems to talk about?

  • Forty six percent said it was the contractor who takes much longer than promised to complete a job.
  • Thirty percent selected the contractor who broke one thing while fixing another.
  • A third place tie, at 20 percent, went to: contractors who quote one price and then increase it significantly during the job, and contractors who take the money and run – without completing the work.

On another topic – job site cleanliness – opinions were mixed. Thirty-five percent said contractors had generally done a good job protecting their homes and leaving them clean and tidy, while 12 percent said contractors usually left a mess and expected customers to clean up when the job was finished.

Landscape Maintenance Services:  Check Out Their Reviews Online

A good thing to look at when looking for a contractor for landscape maintenance is online reviews for the business.  Another thing that is a good indicator is how long they’ve been in business and how busy they are.  Customer service skills should be present as well. All of these things and more are skills for the right fit for your home or your business.

Hiring a contractor is easy.  Hiring a good one takes a bit more detective work.  If you take this step, however, you will be on the way to finding a good landscape maintenance service.

Monsoons: What will they do to your Landscape?

Monsoon Season is coming so what does that mean for my Landscape?

Monsoon Season has an average start date of the first week in July and usually ends in mid September. During the monsoon season Arizona experiences more severe weather then most states. Monsoons have dust, high winds, and heavy desert rain usually resulting in flash floods. Arizona typically gets about 2-1/2 inches of rain during monsoon season, that is about 1/3 of the yearly rainfall Arizona gets.

 

 

How monsoon season can affect your Landscape.

Monsoons can cause limbs or entire trees to fall, often landing on homes, cars, or other trees. Even an old tree with strong roots can be damaged in a monsoon with the 40mph – 60mph winds. Top heavy trees need to be thinned out to allow wind to move through the tree and help prevent storm damages from occurring. This also promotes a more upright growth and allows the sun to penetrate the interior of the tree to aid the trees health.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How much could this monsoon season cost you?

Please give an expert a call today! We will come out and give you a free estimate for a tree service. Remember it is more cost effective to have your tree serviced before the damage occurs. We would rather save your tree from falling or being damaged then having to remove it.
