Artefacto Landscapes LLC has kept outdoor areas trimmed and tidy for more than 16 years, using their time-tested expertise to address the specific needs and natural behaviors of trees, shrubs, and different grass varieties. Technicians can mow lawns into a respectable crewcut or force clingy weeds to give up their grip on the ground, and trimming services prevent possible hazards and keep overgrown branches from obscuring a shrub?s beautiful eyes. If automatic sprinkler systems exhibit a tendency to leak or target specific mailmen, Artefacto Landscapes can repair them quickly or install a brand new, bias-free model. Firm believers in working in conjunction with natural environmental conditions, the team also develops landscaping plans that conserve water and protect the environment with strategically placed mulch and irrigation systems.
Since 1983, WaterQuest has been beautifying lawns and creating innovative, attractive, and functional landscape designs. In addition to cutting grass and pruning plants on residential and commercial properties, the yard gurus can fill wide-open spaces with artificially turfed putting greens, as well as ensure homes and yards remain illuminated and secure by installing outdoor lighting. They can also make use of wood and stone to build decks, fire pits, or outdoor kitchens replete with stoves and barbecues. To help home or business owners beautify their blank yard canvases, the gurus specialize in xeriscaping—a top-down approach to landscaping design that reduces or eliminates the need for supplemental irrigation. This means that all the water not being used on plants can be used to fill decorative fountains, ponds, or lagoons designed to lure migrating mermaids.
Since 1978, landscape architect and designer Joe Romero and his crew at Landsculptors Inc. have been creating innovative aesthetic solutions for shaded and sun-soaked yards. From irrigation and lighting to decorative walkways and patio construction, their work not only makes clients' homes more beautiful but also adds to their value. Romero and his staff specialize in xeriscaping, an eco-friendly technique that, like giving a goldfish a lung, allows wildlife to flourish while conserving water.
An outdoor heated mineral pool beckons guests at the Garden Gate Day Spa & Salon, but its appeal lies in more than just its smooth surface. As visitors slip beneath the surface, underwater music floats gently into the eardrums. Similarly soothing details pop up throughout the spa: a rain shower and dry saunas stand ready in the women's changing room, an aromatherapy room engages the olfactory system, and luxurious spa packages encourages all-day visits.
Home to one of New Mexico's largest nurseries, Plant World lets gardeners clasp green thumbs to 17 acres of plant life along with landscaping and gardening supplies. The myriad plants and tools, once exclusively sold to professional landscapers working on commercial or residential projects, are now available to any home-gardener that wields a membership (normally $25) or has taught English to a rhododendron. The lifelong membership also includes access to plants grown by horticulture specialists, large-specimen plants not available at garden centers, and an expansive spread of décor including pottery and fountains.
