Paver Deck and Patios, Courtyards And Walkways

When people think of paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways, one of the first things that comes to mind is the red rectangle brick style or maybe the modular brownish paver. In my opinion certain paver deck and patios, courtyards and walkways are very limited in their uses. One that quickly comes to mind [...]

 
Water Features as the Focal Point

You can never convince me that fire or water features are not a good idea. For that matter, I am not sure you would be able to convince me that there can ever be too much water or fire in a project. For this blog I will focus on water features. My first thought when designing [...]

Desert Shade Plants

It is going to be 115 degrees this week, so let’s talk about desert shade plants. When I say desert shade plants, I will be referring to plants for full shade, partial or filtered shade and those that thrive in morning sun and afternoon shade.

Trellis Plants in the Desert

Using Trellis Plants I feel Trellis plants or vines are underused in the desert. If you like a lush look you gravitate toward grass and if you like Xeriscaping and xerogardening you lean more toward cactus and succulents with a touch of sage and groundcovers.
