Citrus trees grow well in Arizona and make a beautiful addition to backyard landscapes. You can usually pick up baby citrus trees at places like Home Depot and display them in large pots until they are large enough to go into the ground. Line the pots around your Arizona sod lawn to make a nice border between the patio and the grass. Plus, as a bonus you'll get to eat delicious fruit when they are in season.
Herb gardens are a nice addition to any Arizona sod backyard and are a great way to add a little bit of home grown ingredients to your home cooking. Since most of Arizona does not have the best natural soil, it's best to build or buy a raised bed for your herb garden. Pick out your favorite herbs and be sure to keep up with the regular maintenance they need to grow. Some herbs that grow well in Arizona include:
Outdoor fire pits can instantly turn a dull backyard into an upscale desert oasis. First, you need to check that you're allowed to install a fire pit in your house. Certain neighborhoods have restrictions on backyard fire pits and every home needs to meet fire safety standards. When in doubt, check with your county on outdoor burning regulations to make sure you create a backyard fire pit that is up to code.
Another great addition to the backyard landscape is a high-quality grill. Because let's face it! Every guy loves to spend a Saturday afternoon grilling in his backyard. Also, check out some swap marts and department store sales for deals on patio furniture if yours looks like it could use some updating. Since Arizona is typically very dry, you can even opt for the type of furniture that has cotton or cloth cushions on top since you won't have to worry about mold or mildew.
