Desert Landscaping Alternatives

With water restrictions and penalties continuing to climb, you may be looking for more ways to save money by converting your yard to drought tolerant plants and landscaping. But are you tired of the same old look that everyone else is using? At Hanson Remodels and Landscaping, we can help you transform your yard with desert landscaping alternatives that will create an appealing and inviting outdoor space for you to enjoy.

Desert Landscaping Alternative:
Mediterranean Style Landscaping

If you are not interested in dry river beds and sparsely-planted decomposed granite lawns, you might prefer Mediterranean style drought tolerant landscaping. While native desert plants obviously thrive in the Palm Springs area, there is a vast range of lush, yet water wise plants that also grow beautifully here. Known for their feeling of luxury, Mediterranean-inspired yards incorporate details of color, texture and structure.

Your Custom Outdoor Kitchen Extends Your Living Space

One of the best things about the Palm Springs area is the ability to enjoy amazing weather for much of the year. At Hanson Remodels and Landscapes, we are experts in transforming outdoor areas into appealing and inviting spaces, extending your home’s living and entertaining area. One of our specialties is creating custom outdoor kitchens, tailored in the style of your home architecture.

As it gets warmer outside and we start to run the air conditioning, many people would rather not turn on the indoor cooking appliances. Cooking outside can help keep your home cool, and also adds an enhanced element to outdoor entertaining and keeps you near your guests. While friends sip drinks and lounge by the pool, you can be right there with them instead of stuck inside in the kitchen.
