We believe that our job is part of an environmental process. A creative relationship between client, landscaper, and landscape. With an eye for detail and a passion for hard work, we work together with our clients to ensure that every aspect of their desire for their outdoor space comes to life.
Xeriscaping is proven to save 50% of the water consumed in an average American household. This amount is significant when we see our bills.
At Utah Wildflower Company, we look to make your life easier, by helping your landscape be water efficient and maintaining the greens and livelihood when we get home and look into our front yard.
We need this.
Xeriscaping is the practice of minimal water use in landscaping. In other words, landscapes that are xeriscaped require little to no water beyond what the natural climate calls for. This is important in Utah because we are a desert climate, and supporting yards with grass and nonnative flowers can require unnecessary amounts of water, which is at the expense of not only your wallet, but at the expense of the planet as well. When you can have beautiful, bright and, vibrant desert landscapes right in your own yard without wasting water, why wouldn’t you? Are you worried about your energetic and playful dogs, or wanting a grassy space for your kids to play? No worries, you don’t need to have an entire yard xeriscaped to make an impact - it’s called compromise, the best of both worlds, or whatever else you want to call it, it works! Another reason Utah can benefit from xeriscaping is the inevitable and ever-more-present droughts. During droughts, the state encourages us to use less drinking water for our lawns and yards, and xeriscaping does this without even needing to put much thought behind it, for your yard will already be getting what it needs without that extra water supply. With xeriscaping’s focus on using drought-tolerant vegetation, i.e. soil, rocks, mulch and other drought-tolerant native plant species, saving water becomes second nature, like brushing your teeth or getting out of bed in the morning - it just happens.
Make The Change!
Desert-looking Xeriscaping is a thing of the past. The environment has changed and forced us to change our methods of irrigation and planting. We understand changing the greenery in your landscape might be frustrating, but here at Utah Wildflower Co., we make the transition a delightful process by adding a combination of native plants with different color pallets that our state provides us.
