The prominent styles of home found here in Chandler are the Ranch, Contemporary and Pueblo. When you live in Arizona you usually don’t see a lot of homes that feature a large, green lawn. That is due to Arizona being a desert community and the landscapes here are generally made up of gravel or rocks. Since there isn’t a lot of rainfall here this makes it a lot easier to maintain a beautiful (grass free) lawn.
