- Add Shade With Shrubs and Trees. Planting shade-giving trees and shrubs is one of the best ways to keep your outdoor area cool. This can lower the overall temperature in your yard and improve comfort. Not only does our team understand what trees and shrubs will work best, but we also know how to strategically place them in your yard to give you the most benefits.
- Focus on Drought-Resilient Plants. In addition to choosing shrubs and trees that can provide shade, we can also offer you drought-tolerant plants that can withstand high temperatures. Native plants, decorative grasses, and succulents are just a few great landscaping options. These plants are economical and environmentally beneficial since they use less water and require less upkeep. And when they do need watering, our irrigation systems are the perfect answer, giving them just what they need and allowing you to simply sit back and enjoy.
- Effective Irrigation Solutions. Our team can provide you with effective irrigation techniques that help you preserve water while maintaining the health of your plants. By watering your plants early in the morning or late at night, you can prevent evaporation and make sure they get the moisture they require. We can even help you install an automated irrigation system so that your plants continue to grow and give you the shade you need.
