Backyard Habitats and Landscape
DROUGHT TOLERANT LANDSCAPES:
We utilize our extensive knowledge of drought resistant native plants
in creating unique and beautiful low water-use gardens for your home or
business. We design for year-round color and include plants that attract
vital pollinators such as birds and insects, creating backyard wildlife
DESIGN AND INSTALLATION:
Our President and Founder, Michael Dean Smith, is a licensed landscape
contractor, Master Gardener and has a degree in Outdoor Recreation/Resource
Management. He will work with you to create your overall plan, plant selection
and water wise irrigation system. All our work is guaranteed.
WATER-WISE IRRIGATION SYSTEMS:
Plateau Restoration has over 12 years of experience in designing irrigation
systems in SE Utah.
This is an inexpensive and highly efficient way to water your drought
Traditional Sprinkler Systems:
For those areas where sprinkler systems are a must. Full coverage, proper
layout, and sprinkler head choice are important ways to save water and
improve the look of your lawn.
Backflow prevention systems:
Protect our drinking water by preventing fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides
and other chemicals from flowing into potable water supplies through
your irrigation hook-ups. All irrigation hook-ups are required to have
backflow prevention devices.
NATIVE PLANTS AND SEED:
Plateau Restoration offers access to a large variety of certified native
seed, including wildflower and "meadow-lawn" mixes and can help
you select the seeds right for you. We can help you choose native plants
for your garden, and will deliver them to your door.
Maintenance services are offered on a contractual basis. We specialize
in drought tolerant landscapes and conversions from a water-hungry landscape
to one that is more appropriate for a desert environment. We also offer
weed reduction and control programs.
In addition to designing, installing and maintaining drought tolerant
landscapes in SE Utah, Plateau Restoration is actively researching effective
ways to restore vegetation communities and habitat to private and public
conservation lands. We identify areas in need of restoration and plan
service learning projects to replace trampled and damaged native plant
species and reduce invasive species in disturbed sites.
