There are a variety of things you can do to make your backyard a pleasant place to hang out and enjoy your free time. You can create an amazingly beautiful backyard in Las Vegas, even if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on it. All you have to do is follow the tips below and you’ll be on your way to having the backyard of your dreams.

a beautiful desert landscape

Create a cactus garden

This is a very low-budget and effective way to landscape your backyard. You’ll need to first cover the area with sand-colored pebbles, which will be the base of your landscape. Then, plant some cacti around the yard in a pattern to your liking. Finish off the look with a neat wood carving, western sculpture or some interesting animal figurines.

Make a dry stream

A dry stream is a cheap way to spruce up your backyard, as they do not require many supplies and doesn’t cost a lot of money or effort to maintain. Begin by figuring out where you want the stream in your yard. You’ll want to map out a start point and an end point and making it twist a bit will look better than having it run straight. Fill that area with some cheap rocks and finish off the look with a few larger boulders along the stream bank, with plant bushes next to each boulder.

Decorate with local plants

Choose a variety of plants that are commonly found in desert areas. Desert plants are ideal because they don’t require a lot of water or expensive fertilizers for them to grow. Plant them in groups throughout the yard, then create a stone walkway through the yard with plants on either side. Some plants you might consider using include: sage, yucca, agave, aloe, mesquite and bottle brush.

Use a rock art design

Choose a variety of different colored rocks and place them in a unique design throughout your yard. If you are unsure of what kind of design will look best, check out Pinterest for some ideas on decorative rock in Las Vegas. Finish off the look with some large boulders scattered about.

These are just a few of the many ways you can create an amazing backyard without breaking the bank. Even on a tight budget, you can make your backyard look amazing with the right features and design ideas. For more information, give us a call today at (702) 566-7625.
