Custom landscaping in your Utah residence that matches your style and needs

Custom landscaping can really boost your property’s value. According to the National Association of Realtors, a well-designed landscape can bump up your home’s value by up to 20%. For instance, investing in a concrete square patio can add up to $5 per square foot, and if it’s a custom area with decorative pavers, that price can go even higher! Many experts and architects suggest that homeowners should spend between 5% and 10% of their home’s value on landscaping. Yes, you are right; the investment is worth it in the long run, but be sure to hire professional contractors.

Creating this unique haven amidst the stunning landscapes of Cottonwood Heights, UT

Let’s go deeper, this beautiful custom home was constructed in 2022 in Salt Lake Valley, its backyard was downhill and there was no front or backyard structure , let’s see what the homeowners wanted to add:

  • Modern Minimalist Areas

A modern minimalist garden is all about clean lines, simple plantings, and functional spaces. We love using materials like concrete, pavers, and even chess board patios with epoxy to create that sleek, contemporary vibe.

  • Walkways and Paths

We added walkways and paths to link up different parts of the backyard with the front yard. We used materials like concrete, pavers, and stepping stones to give the landscape some texture and interest.

  • Retaining Walls

Since they had a large sloped area, we needed to add retaining walls to provide structure and prevent soil erosion. Plus, they give you a chance to plant and add some vertical interest to your garden.

  • Outdoor Living Areas

Create outdoor living areas that serve multiple purposes. For instance, a patio with comfy seating can be both a dining spot and a place to unwind with family and friends. We even added a small outdoor chess area since this family loves the game! Adding such features can make your patio a hub of fun and endless outdoor entertainment.

  • Xeriscaping

In some parts of the backyard and front yard, we use drought-tolerant plants, mulch, and efficient irrigation systems to create a beautiful and sustainable garden.

  • Accent Lighting

We use a few accent lights to highlight specific features like trees, sculptures, or water features. This creates a dramatic effect and adds depth to your landscape design.

As you can see, we nailed this patio creation and construction! Throughout the process, we listened to the homeowners’ changes, last-minute ideas, and implemented everything they wanted. Once the project was completed and accepted, we offered a month of aftercare, where our team took care of small details like plant watering, lighting issues, or adding extra gravel. Apart from that, the value of the home has gone up since the recent evaluation. The current price has actually increased by about 8-10% of its value!

At the end of the day, it’s really about making you proud of your outdoor space. This is your own special retreat, built just the way you’ve always dreamed!
