On the north side of Scottsdale, Arizona, you will find a charming town called Carefree. Dating back to the 1950's, Carefree is home to about 4,000 residents and some of the best-named roads in Arizona, Carefree is truly a delight to visit and/or reside in. One of the focal points of Carefree is the Carefree Town Center. The Carefree Town Center is a collection of shops, galleries and restaurants and is host to many events throughout the year. Its main focal point is the 90 foot Sundial, which appears to be the 3rd largest sundial in the western hemisphere. There is the main central area and just down the way, there are more shops and dining options in the Spanish Village section. Although I have yet to discover all of the stores and various vendors, here are some of the places we like ...

     The Carefree Desert Garden, a 4 acre garden located on Easy Street in Carefree, AZ, is a great place to view our local desert plants.        Strolling around the Carefree Desert Garden, you'll see a rare Boojum Tree among many of the native plants as the garden weaves it way around the Carefree Sundial, the Carefree Amphitheater, great art and sculptures, a waterfall, and a giant gila monster slide.       After touring the Carefree Desert Garden for FREE, visit any of the great shops along Ho and Hum streets and stop in for refreshments at any of the wonderful restaurants.  I love the English Rose Tea Room (reservations recommended 480-488-4812) and the Sundial Cafe for breakfast or lunch.  Carefree Station often has night time entertainment on the rooftop allowing you to enjoy our...

When you are looking at home listings in the Scottsdale area you will often see the description “Desert Landscaping.”  What exactly does that mean?  Scottsdale is typically desert terrain complete with saguaros, other forms of cactus and a number of distinctive trees and bushes.  Homes are built upon parcels of land carved out of this unique desert setting and are scattered among areas known as “NAOS,” or Natural Area Open Space.  Almost two thirds of Scottsdale, north of the Central Arizona Canal, is affected by the Environmentally Sensitive Lands Ordinance (ESLO) which dictates how much land must be left in its natural condition. (Here is a link to the Scottsdale Government website relating to this subject.) Many homeowners choose to have a more natural looking front yard by using des...
