Las Vegas Desert Landscaping Design Tips

The design plans should be tailored to your property’s microclimate, the sun direction in different locations, and how you want to use and enjoy your outdoor space:

  • Address the trouble spots – Sunlight, shade, drainage, and irrigation problems make some parts of a yard need a lasting solution with turf or hardscaping.
  • Match desert plants to locations – Various species of cactus and other desert plants can have very different sun and water requirements. Avoid placing desert plants with different needs right next to each other.
  • Consider maintenance requirements – Talk to an expert about irrigation, fertilization, and expected upkeep needs. It’s best to square away your desert landscaping maintenance while designing the desert landscape.
  • Children and pets – How much space do kids need to play? Do you need a dog-friendly turf that is easy to clean?

Grass Alternatives for Desert Landscaping

Synthetic turf is your simplest solution for desert landscaping. Always green and never a burden, an artificial grass lawn makes it easy to create a thriving desert garden. The options available today look and feel wonderful — these aren’t the old fake grass products from decades ago.

In terms of design, turf installations can be highly customized. We can create a lawn or walkway in any shape or size with pavers or masonry lining it for a truly unique landscape that blends well with your home and garden. Turf also comes in various heights and thicknesses so you get the visual and tactile effects you want.
