Even though we have definitely been in the grip of a long stretch of frigid winter weather the last two weeks, Spring is just around the corner and it’s a great time to begin planning for a beautiful landscape that will make your property a place to have fun, entertain friends, decompress and make connections to the natural world that renews the spirit and feeds the soul.
The days are growing longer, the sun stronger, and in four short weeks, we can celebrate the first official day of Spring. During March the world of plants begins the process of breaking out of winter dormancy. Sap starts flowing in sugar maples and other varieties, even as snow still covers the ground. Animals of all kinds prepare for raising their young by beginning courtship rituals, staking out breeding grounds and building nests.
Avid gardeners are sowing some of their first flower seeds and vegetables indoors, with many more varieties to be seeded in the next 3-6 weeks. Even if you don’t want to be growing any of your plant materials from seed, you can get started on enhancing your landscape by making a plan for what you want to accomplish this year. Many people enjoy the challenge and creative process of doing the planning for landscaping improvements themselves. This can be a lot of fun and very satisfying.
If you prefer to enlist some professional help in planning for improvements to your landscaping, we’d be happy to help. Our landscape designer, Chris Lambert, is great to work with, and will work hard to tailor a landscape plan that will fit the unique character of your property, and be in step with your tastes and practical needs. To get the process started, just give us a call and we will provide you with more information and will get you in contact with Chris.
It’s time to prepare. Enjoy the journey!
