Raised Garden Bed

Who says you can't have a garden in the desert? Our REALTORS® love the convenience of eating fresh fruits and vegetables from their own backyard. Plus, making a raised garden bed in your Las Vegas home is super easy. Follow these 10 simple steps. 

  1. Choose the Container
    Raised beds come in a variety of materials such as cedar, recycled plastic, and galvanized steel. You can also choose from semi-DIY, modular, and fully constructed beds. A depth of 10-12" is recommended to give roots plenty of room to develop.

  2. Decide How Many Beds to Plant
    If you're a gardening newbie or have limited time, you might want to start with one. Three or four beds will give you a healthy amount of space if you plan to cultivate a good variety.

Las Vegas Plants

Great landscaping is a vital component for any home. Not only does landscaping improve the curb appeal of your home, but it creates a relaxing space that your family will want to use. Las Vegas has a distinct desert climate that requires certain types of vegetation. Our REALTORS® compiled a list of plants that are ideal candidates for your Las Vegas home. 

  1. Cacti
    No list of desert-friendly vegetation would be complete without the cacti. Since the cacti can store water in its stems, it's perfect for a climate with low amounts of precipitation. Cacti also add greenery to your landscaping. When the cacti bloom, they lend even more color to your landscaping. Different cacti species come in various sizes, making it easy to find cacti that fit the space where you want more vegetation.
  1. Palm Trees
    Palm trees lend a luxurious touch to your outside areas. Though palm trees do require frequent watering when they're young, once they're a few years old, they're a hearty, durable addition to your landscaping. Established palm trees can withstand extreme heat and occasional frost. Some palms grow as tall as 60 feet, making them an excellent choice if you want to add privacy to your yard.

Landscaping Trends

Spring will be at our doorstep before you know it, and you can bet our real estate agents are ready! The arrival of spring brings a lot of opportunities, but as a homeowner, one of the best things about spring is that it offers a chance to spruce up your landscaping.

Of course, over our many years offering Las Vegas homes for sale, we've learned that Las Vegas lawns come with a few unique challenges. Not to worry! Facing a challenge is a great way to encourage creativity, and these landscaping ideas will help you revitalize your property this spring. 

  1. Go Native
    There are endless benefits to choosing landscape plants that are native to the region you live in. They're readily available and are perfectly suited to your climate, so you won't ever have to worry about whether or not they can survive. These days, nurturing native plants is considered not only a great way to make your landscape look its best, but also to help support your local environment. And in case you're worried that "native" gardening in Las Vegas means you're stuck with a prickly cactus garden, you'll be happy to know that there are countless varieties of native trees, shrubs, and groundcovers that will thrive in your yard.
