It is no secret that Utah is a unique place. One thing that makes it unique is its environment and climate. In Utah, landscapers face difficulties that come along with high elevation as well as the stresses of low annual precipitation. These factors can affect the successful growth of plant life. However, CARE has become acquainted with the unique environment of Utah, and we are able to help your landscapes thrive despite the dry climate.
One of the best ways to deal with this lack of water is knowing what plants will flourish best in the dry environment. Xeriscaping is the use of drought-resistant plants that require less water and care in landscapes. Some examples of xeric plants are daffodils, lilacs, and herbs such as oregano and basil. Pine trees can also be successful in a xeriscape. CARE can help you pick the most attractive plant life for your landscape while also considering which species will do best in the environment.
No matter which plants you choose, knowing how to care for them is important. Luckily, we know the best ways to care for your lawn even during long, hot summers. It is important for lawns to be watered early in the day, so the grass is able to soak up the water before it evaporates. It is also vital for your lawn to be watered evenly, and too-frequent watering must also be prevented. CARE can assist with this weekly maintenance to ensure your lawn will always be healthy and green.
