Modern Desert Landscaping: Phoenix
Is there a difference between traditional and modern desert landscaping? Yes, there is. The natural shapes of many plants used in landscaping Phoenix and Scottsdale area homes are very sculptural. When combined right they can create living contemporary art. It can be very bold or softer, and even very colorful, depending on the plants selected.
No matter how you interpret modern desert landscaping, it’s particularly suited to small areas, like the front yard in the image above. The planting composition give this home sensational curb appeal that invites both residents and visitors to enter and enjoy. This mix of succulents, cacti and other drought tolerant plants draws the eye to the stone walk and front door.
It’s best to use programmed drip irrigation in landscaping Phoenix homes to ensure your desert plants perform at optimum levels. And if you’ve chosen any for their flowers, moisture assistance allows a more profuse bloom display. Only plants that do not have to struggle to survive will look sensational throughout the year. This is especially important in modern desert landscaping where very few plants create a major focal point.
