The basics: A typical landscape project requires just a few of the basic features. A good irrigation system is the backbone to all Phoenix 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.

"Premium" Landscape
“Premium” 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” Phoenix landscaping projects.


1. Make sure a premium irrigation system is a primary focus, it will pay off in water efficiency & ease of use. Make your next Phoenix landscape project the best.
2. Create a focal feature – this can be a water feature, fireplace, large tree, etc…. Anything to anchor the landscaping in your backyard. Front yard landscape focal feature? Well, this should be your house!
3. Invest in a Phoenix landscape design. Many people are looking for the best deal and who can get the project done quickly and efficiently. In doing so, they are making the single biggest mistake in the landscape and pool industry – NOT GETTING A MASTER PLAN. Our andscaping experts can help.

Landscape Design

So many times we’ve gone to a project where a customer has not wanted to invest in a professional landscape design or they are comparing our design ideas to another Phoenix landscape company. Remember, Unique’s largest value is our ability to design both the pool and the landscape together – and it’s FREE (when you use us for minimum installation)! Why not take advantage of this? As a professional design/build landscape and pool company in Phoenix, we can’t emphasize enough the importance of having a well-planned master Arizona landscape plan. It allows both client and designer to review, comment, criticize and “sleep-on” every aspect of the project. A landscape plan also allows for a more detailed and accurate cost-breakdown, documentation for a landscape agreement, and future references to a complete landscape project (which may be needed years down the road). The final benefit for landscape design allows for customers to “phase” a project into different installation phases, while having an ultimate plan or goal for the project.

The “UNIQUE” difference – After many years of perfecting our products, we have come up with the best possible way to construct many of our popular items. Here is how we differ our landscaping from our competition:

Irrigation Systems – As energy consumption and water usage becomes more important in today’s GREEN industry, Unique offers many irrigation solutions that are industry leaders for water consumption & water efficiency. We use HUNTER irrigation products that continue to allow us to offer solutions for better pop-up sprinkler heads, drip system, and valves. Our irrigation controllers are easy to use, expandable, and have a great HUNTER warranty. The best in Phoenix landscaping and irrigation!

Plants & Trees – Most Phoenix landscape companies specialize in plants and trees – and that’s it. It’s easy for companies to save money and lower prices in this category by not providing soil-amendments for newly planted items, or by charging extra for double-staking trees. At Unique, these are included in all of our estimates, since it’s a necessary part of providing longevity and sustainability to our Phoenix landscape projects.

Gas & Electric – As licensed Arizona pool and general contractors, we are one of the only Phoenix landscape companies that can “legally” perform these services for our clients. Don’t let an unlicensed landscape contractor touch something as dangerous as gas, propane, or electric on your property!

Landscape Design – Unique offers free professional landscape designs for all of our projects. These designs are Landscape Architect quality designs, and they are complimentary to our clients! We will put our landscape designs and planning up against any other company in the Valley! Each Arizona landscape plan is guaranteed by Unique Landscapes.

Masonry & Hardscapes – Unique has full-time masonry and hardscape crews that also understand Phoenix landscaping and irrigation. We find it’s best to have the same crew working on a project from start to finish. On top of that, our masonry & patio experience continues to get recognition as one of the best in the valley!
