Southwest Arizona experiences high temperatures during the hot summer months. Like the rest of Arizona, this region gets very little precipitation. It perhaps has something to do with its desert environment. But when winter comes, most people may enjoy the hot summers, as winter in Southwest Arizona is extremely cold and windy. In fact, Tucson has a number of ski resorts due to significant snowfall during winter. That should give you an idea what winters are like in this region.
It goes without saying plants that may flourish in the rest of the United States will not thrive in Southwest Arizona. That is why Arizona homeowners have to plan their landscape and garden and grow plants and shrubs that can withstand the harsh winters and cold, windy conditions.
So, without much ado, here are some winter landscaping ideas that are perfect for Southwest Arizona.
Plan to strategically place outdoor lighting, so that you can admire your beautifully landscaped garden while sitting indoors in the evenings. It also will uplift your mood and boost the curb appeal of your home.
As Southwest Arizona has poor soil conditions, you want to grow a combination of plants, grasses amidst boulders and rocks. Boulders and rocks will add more depth to your garden and also break the monotony of the plants. Also, look to grow evergreen shrubs, such as Arizona rosewood and Chasteberry.
Another way to bring your garden to life during winter is by adding holiday accents. During Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's visit holiday stores and craft stores to pick up vibrant and colorful garden ornaments. You can place these ornaments in your garden to add color and make your garden look unique and special.
