Many Arizona homeowners are overwhelmed by the task of landscaping their properties. They aren’t sure how to get plants to grow in the desert’s dry climate without using a lot of water. Fortunately, there are many unique plants native to this desert environment that can survive drought conditions. When paired with well-designed hardscape features such as a pool, fire pit or built-in grill you can have the landscape of your dreams.
Whether one is looking for basic backyard landscaping or a complete landscape and pool project – Unique Landscapes is your leading expert for landscaping in Arizona! Unique Companies continues to be your area specialist for all aspects of landscaping, landscape design and pool construction. Arizona has always been a prime location for outdoor living, with our mild winters, hot summers, and overall desire for living outdoors. Most Arizonans maintain this strong design to be outside, entertain outdoors and showcase their backyard landscaping.
It seems that “keeping up with Jones’” mentality has a large effect on what people desire to see in a typical landscape project. Unique Landscapes specializes in all aspects of your complete Arizona landscape construction needs. We have lived and worked in the Phoenix area for over 12 years, we understand all the local niches, the HOA’s, the city requirements for permitting and engineering, etc.
The basics: A typical landscape project in Arizona requires just a few of the basic features. A good irrigation system is the backbone to all landscaping
projects. With temperatures reaching 100 degrees plus for the better part of 4 months, all the Arizona plants and trees require adequate irrigation, proper drainage, and routine fertilization & care. Landscape rock/gravel, concrete patios, and maybe some grass are the “basics” in every backyard.
The upgrades: All of our Phoenix residents are content with the basics, but those serious about outdoor living have got to “splurge” with a few of the Arizona “must-have’s”! The builder patio (10’ wide x 10’ long) is out, and patio extensions are in! Most of our landscape designs factor in more patio space, and entertainment features such as a small fire pit, swimming pool, water feature or barbecue island. A good landscape project has something different, a focal feature, etc. These items do require our clients to increase their landscape budget a bit, but it’s well worth it – for the immediate impact in their new backyard landscape.
The “Premium”: The truly committed Arizonan is dedicated to outdoor living. The lifestyle we have grown to love is completed by a magnificently landscaped backyard. Phoenix maintains the highest population of Arizona landscapes and our “PREMIUM” customers wouldn’t enjoy the outdoors as much without our high pressure mist system, lighting systems, swim-up bars and outdoor kitchens. Our most popular items these days are our travertine paver patios, custom fireplaces and fire channels, and resort-style swimming pools and spas. These features complete our “Premium” landscaping projects.
Start looking at your property as an opportunity rather than a challenge. With warm summers and mild winters, the desert is the perfect place for year-round outdoor living. Think about how you and your family would like to spend time outdoors. Do you envision your kids swimming in a new pool, or your friends gathered around a fire pit? Would you like to be able to host unbelievable barbecues? Whatever your desire it can be achieved with the help of an Unique Landscapes and Custom Pools.
