Establishing curb appeal with a great-looking landscape is vital for every business. When it comes to Las Vegas, low-maintenance commercial desert landscaping is the way to go. If you need help improving your existing outdoor space or are starting from scratch, Green America Tree & Landscaping is here to get the job done right.
The Benefits Of Desert Landscaping
Untrimmed or dying trees and plants, weeds, or barren stretches of dirt, are more likely to turn away customers than invite them to come closer. But when it comes to running a business, you want to keep costs down. Installing desert-friendly landscaping features means you spend less money on labor, equipment, and water resources.
Best Low Maintenance Desert Landscaping Features
Southern Nevada Xeriscapes
Xeriscaping is a type of landscaping that uses as little water as possible. This means incorporating slow-growing, drought-tolerant plants with rocks and native vegetation. Although critics call it sparse, xeriscaping can achieve plenty of color and texture through the right combination of rocks, gravel, colorful desert plants, and sufficient lighting.
Rock Landscapes For Businesses
You can achieve a surprisingly attractive exterior space for your business with decorative rock landscaping. Combine flagstones or pavers with crushed gravel to build walkways, create a dry creek bed made with river rock, and add boulders for visual contrast. Rock gardens can create a zen-like appeal for customers and employees.
Shady, Drought Tolerant Trees
Shade is always welcome in the desert. Certain trees grow very well in Southern Nevada, especially native species that have adapted to low-water conditions. Certain palms, Indian laurel columns, mesquites, flowering plums, Palo Verdes, and tipus are excellent choices.
Many trees do require annual trimming to keep them looking their best, but a reliable tree service will take care of that in short order.
Water-Hardy Desert Plants
Many beautiful water-hardy plants thrive in Las Vegas. Yellow-flowering creosote is iconic in the desert southwest. Texas sage, known for its beautiful purple flowers and fragrant aroma, is another vigorous shrub found throughout the valley.
There are dozens, if not hundreds of other attractive plant varieties that don’t require a great deal of water or maintenance to thrive in the valley. We can help you select the right ones for your commercial landscapes.
Succulents & Cacti For Commercial Spaces
These are excellent choices for xeriscapes and other low-maintenance business landscapes in Southern Nevada. Cacti and succulents are easy to grow, come in various sizes and colors, and are very drought tolerant.
No-Hassle Artificial Turf
Because of the ongoing drought, many businesses have turned away from natural grass. Artificial turf allows for the same look and feels while saving water and doing away with the need for mowing and other maintenance.
Fake grass technology has improved so that you can choose from many realistic-looking varieties to add that lush green look you’ve been missing.
