Change Your Utah Yard From a Maintenance Nightmare Into Useable Space

Today’s families are very busy, and many do not have time to play in their Utah yard like days gone by.  A large Utah yard has turned into a maintenance nightmare for many families.  There is the constant upkeep of mowing, watering, fertilizing, weeding, raking leaves, and for what, to just redo it all over again.  Many of these families never even use their yard.

Why not change your yard from a maintenance nightmare into useable space for your family?

You must first figure out what would be a beneficial use for your family, so you will know what to transform your yard into.  Take a close look at your family’s likes and hobbies, this will give you a clue as to what you can use your yard space for.

The first thing to look at is whether you have a pet or not that will need some lawn space.  If you have a pet, you will want to leave a small piece of lawn area for your pet to use.  If you do not have a pet you will be able to transform your entire lawn area into more useable space.

The next thing you will want to consider is whether you will want to use your lawn area for entertaining or relaxing.  If you want to entertain, you will want to plan some decks and patio areas that will have tables and chairs for your guests to sit down.  You can even incorporate a Utah waterfall or water feature near the place where people will be relaxing.

A combination of Utah pavers, retaining walls, and Utah shrubs can be used to mark the guest areas plus add privacy while you are entertaining. All States Landscaping has a wide variety of landscaping rocks in Utah to choose from that will add a unique and personalized feel to your new yard.
