One of my favorite things about desert landscaping happens to be the use of water. It is the beauty of man's ability to create an "oasis" in the middle of a city or suburbia, especially if it is located in a desert setting.
Casa Blanca in Mesquite, Nevada. The waterfall has a realistic feel to it and is one of the better ones that I have seen in a Mojave Desert community.
Casa Blanca. I also find fountains amazing. Water can be an art form as well.
Ivins, Utah in the southwest of the state.
Las Vegas, Nevada. This is one of my favorites as you can see the lights of Las Vegas behind the beautiful blue lit fountain.
The use of water makes desert landscaping fun and interesting. Now if I could just afford some of the infrastructure that it takes to put up something like this in my yard? Deserts seen in a whole new light of water so to speak.
