When you have a desert landscape, there are a great number of materials you can use to make it really pop. When you have a stunning landscape to complement your home, your home’s value may go up by as much as 20%. The right design can give your property more sub appeal and may allow you to enjoy the outdoors more. There are a lot of materials that can complement the uniqueness of a sunny desert landscape for a place you’ll want to spend more time.
Rocks, Boulders, and Sand
Sand may seem like something that gets everywhere, but outside, that’s perfectly fine. It’s a beautiful substance that is easy to take care of and that blends with just about any other desert materials to create a unified look. In fact, you may want to move even more sand into your yard to give it a consistent look. Sand goes great with rocks of all sizes, including boulders. They require no care and have a charming natural look.
One of the best things you can do for your landscape ecologically is to grow native plants in it. There are plenty of ground covers and flowering plants that are native to the desert, and a cactus or two never hurts the look of this type of landscape. Getting little rainfall doesn’t mean you have to go without gorgeous flowers. And with native plants, they rarely if ever need to be watered and are used to plenty of sun. There are many types that you can use together to create a complete landscape design that will boost the look of your yard and home.
This is another way to decorate your yard in a way that is easy to care for and that looks great. Artificial turf can be used in small spaces or large to add a dash of green to your yard without needing the constant watering that a natural lawn would need. It’s a great way to add bright color to the space.
Concrete or Travertine
Having areas that are covered in concrete makes them highly usable spaces that are great for use as patios, sporting areas, walkways, etc. Using travertine gives an old-world look to a space and makes it easier to use. It can be caused in many different configurations to give you useful outdoor spaces that look great.
