Nevada is Rock Solid Landscape

Most of Nevada is desert. Northwestern Nevada is at the transition point between the High Sierra conifer and the Great Basin desert range. Different soil types within our region will dictate how fast water is absorbed and evaporates. Protected topsoil allows for deeper water penetration and resists evaporation and even helps with erosion.

Rock Solid Landscape will gladly test your soil and add what is appropriate. This will ensure that the plants will continue to grow healthy and even save on irrigation water usage.

One of the characteristic weather patterns of Northwestern Nevăda is caused by it being on the the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Naturally, this leaves us with diminished rain water. So diminished that rain fall is nearly 1/5th as much as the mid region of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. To keep our landscapes green requires precision irrigation. But even with this, evaporation robs your landscape of precious water. Xeric and efficient landscaping methods becomes necessary.

The entire Sierra Nevada region surprisingly has more native plants, than you might think. There are more native vegetation species found here than is found in all of the United States east of the Mississippi river. While many of these plants are found in the mid region of the Sierra Nevada region, there are still many to choose from in the eastern region. Simply that means you have many more choices than you likely thought.

Wildfire
If you have lived in our region for any time, you are fully aware of the danger of wildfire. The close proximity of Sierra Nevada communities to open areas of wilderness makes it a primary concern when developing a landscaping plan. The island approach for structures where we live, work and play, is vitally important. Defensible space around these structures can mean the difference between total destruction and returning after a disaster. Low ground cover along with hardscape immediately around your property can assist with keeping fire at bay.

It’s natural for all vegetation to burn given right conditions. Rock Solid Landscape will assist in choosing plants that are less prone to fire. These plants produce less flammable oils and outgrowth significantly less flammable wood and leaves. Selecting vegetation that is below average fire hazard will help diminish possibility of wildfire causing damage to your property.

Native Plants
A “native” plant is one that has evolved naturally and is indigenous to the region. When plants have adapted to their environment they are much more likely to thrive. Vegetation that acts like an indigenous variety do so by growing well in soils of that region and behave and flourish in the localized climate with minimal impact upon the land, with minimal intervention, and with minimal work. Native vegetation saves energy, stays put, and provides diversity.

Across Northwestern Nevăda, more and more people are discovering the satisfaction in beauty and the benefits to the environment of landscaping their properties with native plants.

Xeriscape
The name derives from the Greek word “xeros – στεγνός”, meaning dry. However, xeriscaped landscaping does not have to be barren and colorless. Xeriscape emphasizes using native and appropriate vegetation. The concept underscores exuberant landscapes with minimal water usage and smart irrigation. Let Rock Solid Landscape design and install your new Xeriscape out-of-doors.

Jeff, Juan Carlos, and crew are fantastic to work with. The project was transformative – a massive and complete conversion of a blank canvas to an art piece. They matched or exceeded my vision. The quality is matched by the integrity behind the work. Thank you.

When we decided to replace our old, ugly asphalt driveway, the first thing I did was Google paver installers. Rock Solid Landscape came up in my search and they had several outstanding reviews. Now I know why. Jeff is the real deal. Our driveway is 3400 sq ft and it needed to be demolished and re-graded before the new pavers could be installed. His team came in and finished the job in under three weeks! Jeff returns phone call and texts promptly and shows up for all appointments on time. He is friendly and professional. They leave the job site neat and clean every evening and did a great job. We couldn’t be more pleased with our new driveway and we’re really glad we chose to go with Rock Solid Landscape.

If you read their company statement you will find my experience with Jeff and his work crew. From initial contact, through design then install our project was flawless. Even the wet weather couldn’t impact it other than needed delays to dry out. We had a very large project including removal of 150′ failing block wall, replacing that wall, leveling and placement of 4000 sq ft of pavers. Ripping out concrete and replacing the pavers on the patio was included. They fixed the drainage in the back of our lot at the same time.
The work site was kept clean, tidy, and safe. They showed up exactly on time every day! If I owned a company I would want it run this way! Rick Solid finished ahead of schedule and on budget! Thanks for a beautiful job done beautifully!

We were blessed beyond words to meet Jeff, the owner of Rock Solid Landscape, LLC. We were at a loss for what we wanted even though we had looked on the internet and books for ideas. We interviewed many sources and attempted to elicit suggestions of what they felt might be possible. It felt as though they were intimidated to throw ideas out on the table. When we met Jeff, he was very respectful and listened to our ideas of a retaining wall and dry creek etc. Then, after listening to our blinded suggestions, he suggested eliminating the retaining wall due to the cost and lack of appeal it would bring to the finished product. We were surprised to hear someone eliminate a suggestion that could put profit in his pocket but that’s just how Jeff is…his priority is to feel-out the customer and find a win-win solution. His employees were fabulous, hard-working individuals who were very respectful and always on time. I was especially impressed by their dedication in making suggestions that improved the finished product after first asking for our approval. They strategically placed the trees in areas that would encourage privacy for the back yard and kept us informed of the situation. We had a cracked water pipe that they were able to correct and we witnessed the diversity of their skills and capabilities with much appreciation. Jeff was sensitive to our economic boundaries in terms of what we wanted to spend and we would recommend him without reservation to anyone who wants to cut through the fat of dealing with individuals who attempt to fake-it to make-it. Jeff has a natural talent for color schemes and taking the canvas that is provided to him and creating an eye-appealing area that can be utilized for a personal sanctuary or for larger groups and gatherings. We now consider Jeff a friend and will always be grateful for his dedication to our needs. We have him and his crew already in mind for another project. Thank you Jeff!!!

Excellent work from a local business who takes great pride in the final product. 110% recommend them for ALL of your landscaping needs.

Danny Sierra

Jeff came through for us at the height of his busiest season. While other landscapers jerked us around, Jeff gave us an initial consultation, quoted us a reasonable price that he stuck to, and started work on the project shortly thereafter. His knowledge and advice was top-notch, his crew was friendly and professional, and he helped us out in every way he could. The job was done quickly and they were always on time each day. We are beyond happy with the final product!

What really sets Jeff apart is that you can tell he’s trustworthy from the moment you meet him. We never had to worry about if things were being done correctly or if we were being billed correctly. He put us at ease immediately just by being a genuinely good person who does great landscaping work. Thanks again Rock Solid crew!
