Landscape Design

A great landscape starts with a great design. Here in Utah, we live in one of the most unique places on earth. Everything from our climate, to our soil, and even culture are distinct from other parts of the country. So, shouldn't our landscapes be that way too?

Localscapes is a landscaping approach using a series of patterns and practices that take into account Utah's particular traits, ultimately leaving you with a landscape that requires less maintenance, uses simplified irrigation, provides more usability, and increased curb appeal.

Learn more by attending one of our free Localscape Classes or by visiting the Localscapes website.

Lawn Care

As an integral part of an attractive home landscape, the lawn, or turf, should be a designed space rather than the default groundcover. Lawns should be created in a way to limit maintenance, improve water efficiency, and increase functionality. Caring for a smaller lawn space is easier and less expensive than caring for the traditional lawn size of the past.

Vegetable Gardening

Food production is considered a smart use of water. The recommended method of vegetable gardening is to use raised beds, or grow boxes. Grow boxes allow you to fit a lot of garden into a small space. You get to control the type of soil that goes in the boxes, and if you water with drip instead of overhead spray, your vegetable plants will be happier, and you will have less weeds.
