When people think of Arizona, the first thing that most often comes to mind is cacti and deserts. If the popular perceptions of our state were true, our landscapes would be nothing but saguaros, rocky hills and bleached bull skulls. The truth is that the flora and landscapes of our state are diverse, and for evidence, you don’t have to look much further than Phoenix. The sheer range of landscaping styles on display shows why Phoenix residents are hiring landscapers more often. We at ABC Scapes are proud to employ some of Phoenix’s most skilled and qualified professional landscapers, and we’d like to give you a few reasons why landscapers like us are in such high demand.
They Know the Terrain
The desert is a harsh environment. Plant life can flourish here, but you have to know HOW to make it do so. Phoenix landscapers understand how to work with their native soil, including how to plant, water, prune and tend to anything you want to thrive around your home. They know how not to disrupt the extensive root system of a cactus, they know which flower bushes will need some extra love to make it through the summer, and they know how best to transform your gravelly desert front yard into a healthy patch of sweet-smelling, emerald-green grass. In addition, they also understand how to properly water your lawn to keep it going strong throughout the year.
They Know the Risks
Landscaping may not seem to be a dangerous activity, but when you’re working in the desert there are risks you have to account for. Even in heavily urbanized areas, pests like scorpions, snakes and other poisonous creatures could pop up while you’re tending to your garden or trimming your fruit trees. Phoenix landscapers know what to watch out for. They know which plants are breeding grounds for creepy-crawlies and whether or not that hole in your backyard is a burrow for a rattlesnake.
They Can Beat the Heat
Gardening and lawn maintenance can be fun, relaxing activities to do on your own. Doing them in the middle of the harsh Phoenix summer, however, is a different story. Even if you have a green thumb and relish doing your own yard work, those three months of brutal heat are a great time to take a break and spare yourself the suffering and sweating. Hiring a professional who’s used to doing excellent work in these conditions is the right choice.
They Can Adapt
Phoenix is a city that’s constantly expanding. Areas that have never had neighborhoods or lawns are popping up every year, and Phoenix landscapers are there to help turn any piece of rough desert land into a vibrant and lovely landscape that would be the pride of any business or homeowner. Whether it’s landscaping on Camelback Mountain or near river basins or in the middle of a modernized gated community, Phoenix landscapers know how to adapt and face whatever environmental challenges are thrown their way.
