Who said that to be water-friendly you have to be limited to cacti and gravel? We have tons of options for commercial landscape ideas. Turn a desolate piece of land into a lush oasis, and landscape design specialists at Sunstate Companies can show you how.

It’s true that native plants work well with just a few inches of rain that we get in Las Vegas, but who said cacti mandatory? Make your backyard perfect for entertainment and photo opportunities with bright splashed of color from the flowering Palo Verde bush, pink garlands of Crape Myrtle and purple bunches of Texas Ranger. For ground cover, use hazy ornamental grass pink Muhly and accent with orange dots of Angelita Daisy.

For a children-friendly backyard, frame your lawn with Red Fountain Grass and Verbenas, and cover the walls with Heavenly Bamboo and purple Powis Castle Wormwood. For a larger Las Vegas yard, we’d also recommend accents with Gold Spot Euonymus and Chaste Tree.

Many of our landscape design clients ask us about how best to augment the pool. Bottle Tree and Mediterranean Palm trees are always a good choice for the overall resort feel. For splashes of color, dot your landscaping with Trailing Lantanas and Lily-of-the-Nile, as well as Cape Honeysuckle. And don’t forget custom iron work and pavers that turn your already beautiful backyard into a unique sanctuary.

At Sunstate Companies, we make sure that your commercial landscape is water-efficient and adherent to your HOA rules. We can also specialize in grounds management, tree management, masonry and ornamental iron. We will approve your plans with certified engineers and architects before ever breaking ground.
