Asphalt Materials is proud to be a supporting partner of Localscapes, a company that uses specific methods of landscaping to make yards grow and thrive in Utah’s unique climate. Their landscaping practices are revolutionizing how homeowners choose to landscape their properties. When you choose to “localize” your yard, you are investing in a low-maintenance, water-efficient, more functional yard that will increase the curb appeal of your home.  

What Is a Localscape?

The Localscape approach to landscaping is quite simple—all it requires is to take into account Utah’s varying climates when you are designing your landscape. When all of your landscaping decisions revolve around optimizing a yard’s efficiency, sustainability, and beauty in Utah, you get better results. Here are some of the fundamental principles of localizing your yard. Grouping your lawn into a single, central shape will help you maintain it much more easily. From more efficient irrigation to having fewer edges to trim and maintain, that practical approach saves you time, energy, and money—all while saving water and helping the environment. Using your lawn as a designed element and not as a default ground cover will boost your home’s value. When you localize your yard, areas that used to be lawn will become planter beds that add color and variety to your home’s facade. Side yards can be turned into beautiful pathways that add functionality and beauty to your home. Side yards are often ignored when they contain nothing but grass and weeds. Localizing them will turn them into spaces of value and use. Localizing your yard increases its value by helping you incorporating play zones, gardens, fire pits, water features, and more into your landscape. What is now a flat lawn with nothing but grass can easily be turned into a beautiful landscape with a gathering area, play zone, waterfall, and flower beds.
