Advantages of Installing Clay Brick Pavers

Despite the fact that a patio is an outdoor space, there is no question that it is a very important part of your home. In fact, it is considered to be the primary place for all outdoor activities in your home including family gatherings and barbecues. For professional contractors and homeowners designing patios, careful consideration is required as all aspects are important including focusing on the type of materials that will be used.

Beautiful Palm Tree Landscaping

Grand Materials and Supply is a proud supplier of a wide array of landscaping materials in Arizona. We have a wealth of products that can help turn your outdoor spaces into ones that are more aesthetically-pleasing and functional. If you are looking for palm trees in Arizona, there is no need to look any further – Grand Materials and Supply has got you covered.

Date Palms

As one of the earliest plants to be cultivated by man (believed to be first cultivated around 5000 years ago), date palms are among the most popular choices for landscaping supply in Arizona. The Medjool date palm is one of its most famous varieties, which is known for having a thicker trunk and a large canopy. Additionally, the Deglet Noor date palm is equally popular. It may not be as well-known in America, but in other regions, like North Africa and the Middle East, it is a popular produce crop.

Canary Island Date Palms

As the name implies, this tree is a native of the Canary Island, but Grand Materials and Supply is able to provide it to anyone that may be interested throughout Arizona. Generally speaking, it can reach a height of up to 50 feet. However, it grows slowly and reaching such height will likely take quite some time. These trees are characterized by having full, round canopies in addition to orange flower stalks.

California Fan Palms

Among the different species of palm trees, the California Fan Palm is another one that is widely cultivated. It is known for having a khaki to grayish-green color and a width that can extend up to 20 feet for the larger ones. One trait that distinguishes this fan palm from other varieties is its white fiber-like threads that grow in between its leaves.

Mexican Fan Palms

The Mexican Fan Palm is a palm tree native to Northern Mexico, however Grand Materials and Supply is able to supply it throughout the state of Arizona. These fan palms are tall, slender, and have a small crown on the top, which is reminiscent of the trees that line the posh neighborhoods of Southern California. The tallest ones can reach a height of up to 100 feet, although that is fairly rare. During early summer and spring, light colored flowers will grow from its leaves.

Hybrid Fan Palms

This hybrid palm tree is a cross between a California and Mexican Fan Palm. The Hybrid Fan Palm is heavier when compared to the Mexican fan palm, and is best known to be the perfect palm tree for resisting cold temperatures.
