Gardening in Salt Lake City, UT


Utah's name, which comes from the Ute tribe of Native Americans, translates to "People of the Mountains." This name is fitting for a state renowned for its natural beauty, including some of the most impressive lakes and best skiing conditions in the world. Utah is also home to desert landscapes, streams, and forests. All of that natural diversity certainly contributes to the state's stunning landscapes. It also means that there are several beautiful native species of flora that you can use to brighten up your property. From wildflowers to ferns, you'll find many delightful flowers that are low-maintenance, require minimal care, and help sustain the local ecosystem.


Planting a Garden in Utah


If you want to establish a garden in Salt Lake City, you have an assortment of plants to choose from. The species that you choose for your garden can also determine the overall look that your yard has. Some flowers will make your property look neat and tidy. Others, such as trailing vines and flowers that create a groundcover, can make it look more like a meadow or an open field. Many flowers come in a variety of colors too, and you can make a selection based on the time of year they bloom as well.


Common Native Species


Utah State University notes that in addition to being visually appealing, many native plants in Utah are great for using in a low-maintenance garden that in turn doesn't require much upkeep. Whether you want to reduce the cost of watering, minimize time spent on garden maintenance or both, here are some top native species to consider.


  • Serviceberry
  • Buckwheat
  • Utah holly
  • Mountain lover
  • Hummingbird flower
  • Globemallow

If you want a taller plant (technically a shrub) for your garden, Serviceberry is a good option. Serviceberry produces lovely white flowers during the growing season. It is a popular option for landscapes and property borders. Serviceberry has a stunning red or yellow foliage in the fall. It also produces delicious purple berries.


Buckwheat is a grain-producing plant. It is used commercially for crop production, but it makes a beautiful, natural-looking addition to a property, too. Buckwheat stands out for its neutral tan, brown, and gold tones that make it an excellent choice for adding earthen tones to your landscaping.


The Utah holly is an attractive plant that is equally aesthetically pleasing and durable. The holly plant is distinctive for its dark green leaves and brilliant red berries. Although holly plants and shrubs are the most common variety seen in residential landscaping, the species also comes in the form of a tree that can reach heights of 50 feet or more.


Given the state's history, it only fits that it has a native species called Mountain lover. Mountain lover is native to the Appalachian Mountains. However, its versatility and hardiness make it a great addition to gardens in many locations, including Utah. Mountain lover stands out for its bright green foliage that often has a glossy appearance. It prefers shade rather than full sun and needs moderate amounts of moisture. This plant is relatively low in height and grows quickly, making it a good option if you want groundcover.


Showy Goldeneye, as you might guess from the name, is characterized by stunning and attractive yellow or golden flowers. Goldeneye is a desert plant, which means that it does well in full sun and doesn't need much water. It can also survive in soil of a relatively poor quality, which makes it a good option for tough areas and rocky gardens. This plant belongs to the sunflower family, which has more than 150 species.


Globemallow, which is also called "Desert globemallow" or "Apricot globemallow," stands out for its brilliant bright red, yellow, and orange flowers. It is a sprawling plant characterized by many stems. It can have up to 100 stems at any given time. The plant has a rounded appearance and can reach a mature height between 20 and 40 inches.


Establishing a successful, picturesque garden in Utah takes time and planning. If you're new to gardening or you're not sure what to plant, the experts at Lawn Love will gladly help out. Once you have a low-maintenance garden established, you can get out and enjoy Salt Lake City.


Things to do in Salt Lake City


From gardens to zoos and downtown attractions, there is no shortage of interesting places to visit in this vibrant Utah city.


Temple Square


Temple Square is a magnificent plaza characterized by immaculate landscaping and greenery. It is a center designed and owned by the Mormon church. Walking tours are available for viewing the square and learning about its history. You can also go to the visitor's center for additional information and souvenirs.


Red Butte Garden


The Red Butte Garden is a great place to go if you want inspiration for your own garden. Its tranquil grounds are also great for rest and relaxation. The garden, which is maintained by the University of Utah, includes workshops and nature trails. It also has a seasonal outdoor concert series in the summertime.


Hogle Zoo


Hogle Zoo is a contemporary zoo that covers 42 acres. It features dozens of animals, a carousel, a train, and even tropical gardens. The zoo was established in 1939. It contains over 245 different animal species.


Natural History Museum of Utah


Given the state's stunning landscapes, it only fits that there is a natural history museum to commemorate its natural past. Native cultures, geology, and topography are all showcased at the museum, which has ten different permanent galleries highlighting Utah's natural elements and native cultures. The museum periodically has scheduled events as well.


Establishing a lush, colorful garden takes time and dedication. But planting a garden with native species, which are adapted to the local climate, can significantly reduce your lawn care needs.
