Reno Green: Your Fernley Landscape Company
Only 30 minutes from the Greater Reno area, Fernley, NV has caught the eye of big business because of its affordable industrial parks and development opportunity. With business comes jobs and subsequently, housing developments are popping up as well. It is projected that Fernley will reach 30,000 people by year 2021.
In a high-desert town, Fernley landscapes give the community a sense of place with xeriscape design elements. Reno Green Landscaping has expert knowledge of xeriscaping including low water use plant selection, rock mulch installation, boulder placement, dry creek bed design and installation and hardscape elements that provide function to your landscape.
Xeriscape Landscape Design
Low Water Use Plant Material
When looking for low water use plant material, look no further than native Nevada plants. They are climate adapted to withstand our intense summer heat and freezing winter temperatures. There are many native Nevada plants that are beautiful in a Fernley landscape. For a larger list of low water use plants for your Fernley landscape, see this Factsheet by University of Nevada, Reno Extension:
- Evening-primrose (Oenothera macrocarpa)
- Globemallow (Sphaeralcea species)
- Fernbush (Chamaebatiaria millefolium)
- Silver buffaloberry (Shepherdia argentea)
- Rocky Mountain maple (Acer glabrum)
Rock and Decomposed Granite (DG) Mulch
Xeriscapes often have rock or DG mulch mimicking our sandy native landscapes. Nevada native plants often thrive in landscapes with rock mulch, though if you are using plants that thrive in soils with high organic matter, it is suggested to use organic mulch around the base of these plants. Organic mulch will breakdown over time and add nutrients and organic matter to the soil.
Any xeriscape looks great with some large boulders placed strategically around the landscape. Your landscape designer can help you choose and place boulders in your landscape, or you can learn more about it in this Landscape Network article.
Dry Creek Beds
A xeriscape is not complete without a dry creek bed for a natural, desert-inspired feel. Dry creek beds are not only aesthetically appealing, but can also work to move rain and irrigation water from one area of the landscape to the other for a sustainable and functional design.
Here are some pictures to give you inspiration for your Fernley xeriscape.
Paver Pathways, Fire Pits, and Outdoor Kitchens
Don’t forget elements that provide function in your xeriscape, such as pathways and entertaining areas. Consider adding some pathways throughout your landscape with pavers or flagstone. Enjoy time with your family around a fire pit or have a dinner party using your outdoor kitchen. Reno Green specializes in designing and installing landscape elements that last because our skilled craftsmen use commercial grade materials.
