DSCN0124Understanding today’s natural, desert environment is key to planting and maintaining lasting desert scapes, xeriscapes and traditional landscapes.

Traditional landscapes require drought-efficient vegetation in the Southern Utah climate. Maintaining a lush, green lawn requires healthy planting and efficient watering methods. Knowing the unique families of plants, shrubs and trees that thrive in this climate is essential. At Desert Sun Landscape & Lawn Care, we pride ourselves in designing the ideal combination of sustainable foliage with the highest water efficiency and visual aesthetics. This approach to desert-friendly landscaping sets our work apart.

Desert scapes involve a minimalist approach to planting not dissimilar to our local surroundings, offering a water conscious landscape that is in harmony with its surroundings.

Xeriscapes are today’s most water-friendly landscapes, for those who desire the most efficient environs with minimal footprint. Recent studies by local water authorities have validated the importance of xeriscaping in water conservation. Results show on average you can save 55 gallons of water per square foot by converting grass to a water smart landscape. Even a densely-planted xeriscape saves enormous volumes of water and the expense of monthly utilities and maintenance.
