Not all Phoenix lawns are high maintenance. With the right desert grass selection to fit the conditions in your Phoenix or Scottsdale landscaping, you’ll find that lush and green year around areas of manicured lawn grass can be low maintenance. Some grass blends available today have low moisture requirements, making enjoying the beauty of lush green expanses quite affordable to maintain.
Reserving the areas that you have Arizona sod installed in your yard to where you will get the most benefit from it is advisable. Here it is used in the backyard landscaping with wonderful visual effect. There is nothing quite like Phoenix lawns to soften and heighten the beauty of pavers used in patio designs or natural stone elements. Additionally, the presence of well cared for grass sweeps provides a cooling effect to the outdoor living spaces around it.
Something unique to traditional Arizona landscaping where stone is used as ground cover. This is very low maintenance, and requires no irrigation beyond the xeriscape plants used in the landscape design. However, stone magnifies both heat and cold, and sod reduces heat naturally. Adding lush lawn to the perimeter of Pheonix or Scottsdale landscaping instantly adds softness and beauty to patio designs like this one. Its quite a backdrop to the area behind the fire pit’s seat wall and the raised bed retaining walls beyond.
