Ideas for Transforming Your Utah Yard this Spring

There are many ways you can revitalize your Utah yard this spring. Whether you are envisioning just a small alteration or a large-scale Utah landscaping project, All States Landscaping has the knowledge and experience to offer some solid and inspiring insights. In the meantime, here are some ideas that can give your yard a fresh look this spring:

Install a Utah waterfall or other water feature: Water features add visual beauty and a sense of tranquility. Features like waterfalls, streams, and fountains also add movement and soothing sound. Your water feature can be made the central feature of your yard or garden, or you may decide you want it tucked away in a secluded area of your yard. Key things to consider before deciding on a water feature are type of feature, style and design of your yard, level of maintenance required for the water feature, etc.

Create a special garden: Plant life and flowers improve mood, inspire creativity, and instill a sense of wellness and harmony in your environment. Gardens are great pleasers – think about establishing a new kind of garden this spring, perhaps something you’ve never tried before. How about a butterfly garden, or a water garden? For an alternative but equally idyllic choice, consider a Zen garden design or borrow ideas from Victorian garden styles. Your options are rather endless here.

Give your yard some structure: Adding structure could be taken literally, meaning, adding an actual structure to your Utah yard – a deck, a gazebo, a charming pergola, etc. The benefits of one of these structures are multiple – they provide shade, visual appeal, and endless opportunities for family bonding, recreation, guest hospitality, and relaxing. Other kinds of yard “structure” may not be so obvious – bordering Utah shrubs, Utah pavers or decorative concrete, retaining walls, etc. These are not only aesthetically beautiful if done well, but serve the specific functions of giving your yard design-form, providing structural support for soil or plants, or helping to create designated spaces for foot traffic.

These are only three ways you can transform your Utah yard this spring, but there are many more options! Give us a call to discuss your design ideas – we will be happy to help you decide what is best for your home and family.
