Tips for Landscaping in Utah
Proper landscaping requires a balance of technical knowledge and creativity, especially if you want a yard that thrives in Northern Utah’s extreme climate. You can’t just come in and start building pergolas and planting greenery without careful planning ahead of time. Because our climate offers all four seasons, plants and water features need to be carefully chosen and installed to withstand all weather conditions.
When coming into a new property, there are some important questions that need to be asked and answered before we can truly begin planning out a new landscape design with you. These questions help us lay a foundation for building up a beautiful space for a small backyard, expansive outdoor living area, or cozy backyard patio for alfresco dining:
- What purpose does the yard serve for the homeowners?
- What is the desired focal point for the yard? Is it a pool, vegetation, outdoor kitchen, or stone patio with a table and chairs
- What kinds of native plant life will thrive in this climate? How can plants offer shade or accentuate a water feature, dining area, or play area?
- Does the front or backyard have any significant slopes or changes in elevation that may require a retaining wall?
- How will each seating area be defined? How can we implement a deck, fire pit, or other structures to utilize the backyard landscape more fully?
- How will we tie all outdoor spaces together? What elements of the landscape will be repeated in the front, back, and/or side yard areas for cohesion?
- Where do we need to run irrigation and sprinklers in the yard to keep the plant life healthy and thriving?
- How much maintenance is going to be needed to keep this landscaping beautiful and in working order?
