Using your design eye and some basic Utah landscaping supplies, you can make small improvements to your landscape that have meaningful effects.Many options abound, no matter what type of yard you have. Here are some fool-proof ways to enhance your landscape:
Add trees – Trees are immediate landscape changers. They focus attention, soothe the eyes, and offer diversity.There are so many different types of trees – choose a species which best complements your yard, whether tall and narrow, or short and wide, or with small, delicate leaves, or large umbrella-like leaves. You will have to consider the Utah climate and seasonal changes as well as spacing, projected growth of the tree and maintenance requirements. Trees can offer shade and privacy as well as add a measure of protection from strong winds.
Plant shrubs – Shrubs, like trees, offer visual aesthetic as well as function. There are also many varieties. Tall shrubs can offer privacy. Short shrubs can provide borders. There are also many flowering varieties. Shrubs are known for hardiness, tolerance for diverse climates and low maintenance needs.
Use Utah landscaping rocks and boulders – Rocks, boulders, and similar items like flagstone and pavers can add definition to your landscape. They can be used to focus the eyes or to add interest. They also work well with other design elements by providing contrast or structure. They come in different shades and textures.
Enhance with high quality soil and bark – Adding high quality soil and bark to certain areas of your yard can help to condition your yard. In addition to providing proper support for plant root systems, Utah topsoil in garden bed areas also enhances aesthetic beauty. Bark mulch suppresses weeds, encourages moisture, and helps protect plant roots. Utah mulch also adds to the composition of the soil over long periods of time.
Consider a water feature – The presence of water easily transforms an environment. Water is soothing, and calming. A water feature with a fountain or waterfall will also add soft, comforting sound. A water feature with a prominent and elegant statue will turn heads. A pond may help you create a little oasis in your yard, and provide you hours of entertainment.
