The Art of Environment
At Sunstate Companies, we specialize in restoring and preserving the natural beauty of the Mojave Desert.
Transforming the rocky and arid surfaces into the magnificent and diverse desert vegetation that was once forgotten, bringing the desert landscape back to life.
Remove Invasive Species
Invasives, generally, but not exclusively non-native, are typically controlled by cutting, pulling or by treating with herbicide or fire. Sunstate Companies has trained and licensed personnel and equipment to effectively remove invasive plants and restore your native landscape.
Establish Native Plants
There are two choices, live plants or seed. Installing live plants provides “instant gratification”, but can be more costly than seed. Planting from seed is far more economical, but requires patience as natives are slow to establish with some species taking years to mature.
Once a natural area has been cleared of invasive species and an appropriate native plant community established, long-term maintenance is necessary to keep alien species from dominating the area until natives have become healthy, mature and diverse. Stewardship services include:
- Ecological mowing
- Hand Weeding
- Selective spot herbicide
We typically set up a schedule of monthly Stewardship visits throughout the growing season to assure the success of your natural areas.
Water is the most powerful erosive force on earth and a dramatic example occurs regularly in the flood channels of Las Vegas. This unique ecosystem includes rare and delicate native vegetation found nowhere else in the region. As municipalities use the channels to convey stormwater from our streets to Lake Mead, the walls of the waterways errode exponentially. We specialize in stabilizing the delicate ecosystems within ravines and reducing the pace of erosion.
Benefits of Hiring a Professional Commercial Landscaping Company
Desert landscapes can reduce your water bill by designing your landscape so that plants with similar water needs are grouped together. They can also choose low-maintenance desert plants that don’t require frequent watering. Incorporating a slope into the landscape can help as well, as it causes the water to pool near the plants that need it most.
Commercial property owners who volunteer to replace grass with more desert-friendly landscapes can receive a “Water Smart Landscape” rebate from the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA). SNWA pays $1.50 per square foot of refurbished lawn space (up to 5,000 square feet per property, per year). For converted spaces exceeding 5,000 feet, SNWA will provide a rebate of $1 per square foot after the first 5,000 feet.
While planting desert plants and cacti can help beautify your landscape in Las Vegas, it can also help to secure the soil. This way, the dirt stays on the ground and not in the air.
