Gearing Up for Spring!

 In Container Plants, Landscaping, Maintenance, Plantings & Pruning

Get ready for the busiest time of the year. Thinking of warmer weather and being outside is a great incentive to get your property ready. On your list, along with planting and property maintenance, don’t forget to include landscape design. We have some suggestions to get you started.

Property Maintenance
After the winter months, your landscape needs some freshening up. A few items to take care of now include:

  • Spreading a fresh layer of mulch around trees and shrubs to protect roots, retain moisture, and prevent weeds
  • Prepare for new plantings by cleaning up perennial beds
  • Trim back dead foliage to encourage healthy growth

Spring Plants Are Arriving
Continue planting pansies and violas. They have a tolerance to cold and can handle temperatures down to 25 degrees. There are so many options to choose from. Daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths are also ideal this time of year because they can bear colder weather too. Start them in container planters, and then plant in your garden or along a walkway, so they will bloom again the next year and beyond. Reach out to us about Container Plantings. They’re the perfect addition to your property. Annual contracts are also available for every season.

Transform Your Outdoor Living Space
Updating an outdoor space is a great way to increase the value of your property and you can enjoy it in spring, summer and through the fall. Why not consider an outdoor kitchen with a fireplace, enlarging a patio to accommodate more room for entertaining, or creating a quiet space to relax. Our experienced team can help choose the right plants, trees, lighting and more to best suit your needs and budget.
