While the landscape around Reno is rugged, the lifestyle is decidedly elegant in "The Biggest Little City in the World". Homes in these hills and throughout the valley become far more usable when beautiful outdoor living spaces make it comfortable and fun to entertain on the deck, patio or terrace. With views of the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains, an outdoor fireplace makes it comfortable to sit out in the transitional seasons and enjoy all that natural beauty.

Views from Sparks take in the glittering lights of the Reno strip and casino towers after dark, when this gambling city really comes to life. After a day working indoors, often in windowless casinos, the ability to relax comfortably in the sun and fresh air is a great way to unwind. Create a great grilling nook or add your own fire pit so the whole family can appreciate the high desert's starry night skies. And during those hot summer afternoons, your new pool will become the most popular place in the neighborhood.

Learn what trees and shrubs can make your new landscape magnificent in spring, summer and fall visit the Wilbur D. May Arboretum. The arid climate of the Washoe Valley demands attention to what you plant so it's sure to thrive even during drought years.

Larger estates dot the valley as it transitions south to Carson City where ranchettes feature the latest in outdoor kitchen amenities from smokers to super hot grills and even a wood fired pizza oven. Here the look is more rustic and natural, for lovely boulder strewn dry streambeds accented with drought resistant native plants.

Landscaping in this region requires a solid knowledge of the high desert climate which can be extreme in some years. Local professionals will know exactly how to irrigate for minimal water use and maximum plant performance. Designers will also know how to create hardscape that's suited to your architecture. For those around the edges of high density areas, a really good hardscape design can reflect the environs for a seamless transition into the region's famously rocky terrain.
