Living in Arizona provides us with the perfect climate to grow some of the worlds most beautiful cacti in your front and backyard landscapes. Cacti is the ideal planting choice in our Arizona climate. This is because cacti thrives in our intense sun and can withstand long periods without water. Let’s be honest our somewhat brutal Summers can take a toll on greenery in our landscapes. Luckily cacti can handle the heat and Summer droughts.
Choosing the Right Cactus
Cacti comes in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. There are many unique specimens available to satisfy many diverse preferences. Landscaping with cacti is the ideal choice for people who are looking to conserve water. They are also a beautiful and “low maintenance” option for your landscape. Unlike plants that need to be frequently trimmed, cacti seldom need maintaining. When designed and integrated correctly into the landscape, they can provide a stunningly beautiful artistic solution. This is a great investment to your landscape since cacti only improves over the years.
When incorporating cacti into our landscape designs, we work to make them appear naturally and artistically placed. Positioning cacti in contoured areas with carefully positioned boulders makes them even more visually appealing. They also help to make the cacti seem more naturally placed. Cacti can serve to become a striking focal point. They are a perfect way to complement and complete a masterful outdoor canvas.
It is also delightful to include a couple of rare specimens in the mix. This will help to create visual intrigue with a more unique look that stands our from some of the more common planting themes around the valley.
Planting with cacti is our specialty. This is why we have our own in-house cacti nursery that we use exclusively for our clients. This enables us to provide the very best, quality cacti available at economical prices. If you are a cacti enthusiast, or are newly interested in cacti, we invite you to have a chat with us. Together we can come up with the perfect design for your home.
We look forward to helping you achieve your outdoor dream-scape!
