Low voltage lighting for backyard

Low voltage lighting expands yard visibility in the dark

You have a beautiful landscape in your backyard and you cannot enjoy it in the dark. While porch lights would only illuminate parts of the landscape, the low voltage lighting placed around plants, trees, water falls and fire features will make them visible in the dark. It will expand the visibility and space usage at night, so you and your guests can enjoy more of your backyard even after dark.

A landscaper can provide a layout of how the lights will be placed in your yard before installing them, so you can have a preview of the final setup. The lights can be powered on and off automatically.

Watering Plants

Give Your Plants Extra Drink In The Summer

Scorching sun can be harsh on the plants and trees in the Las Vegas desert. If you notice that they start to die, make sure you water them by hand or increase the timer watering time for your plants. During the summer, a couple of days of not enough water can have a big impact on the plants and trees. If you think a desert landscaping would be better for your yard, call us.

Should I Plant During the Summer Months?

New Plants Need Extra Water

The Las Vegas summers are very hot and dry and affect the germination of the seeds and the growth of plants, grass and trees. Ideal seasons to sow grass seed or plant new greenery or trees is fall or early spring, after the freezing time has passed in Las Vegas. However, if you do new planting in the summer, make sure the plant gets some protection against the scorching sun, by either planting it in an area that is not completely exposed to sun or create a barrier that will provide some shade during the day. Make sure the new plant will receive plenty of water. Choosing desert trees and plants for your yard may be a better option.
