It might not quite feel like spring yet – with all the snow we’ve had in the past few weeks, but believe me, it’s right around the corner!
If you have spring bulbs, you may have already seen them sprouting from the frozen ground before they were buried by the snow. Soon there will be crocus, tulips, daffodils and hyacinths everywhere. You may also see some of the less common spring blooms such as fawn lilies, bloodroot, winter aconite, leopard’s bane and fritillaria.
Once the early flowers are gone, you should take a look at how well your existing plantings survived the winter and decide which improvements you want to schedule for this year.
This is the best time to make changes if you’re thinking of selling your home this year or just improving the look. Making changes early in the year gives your new plantings time to fill out for the summer and be well-established for next winter. These improvements increase curb appeal along with the overall value of your home.
If you’re not sure what to do, we can come out and offer suggestions based on the layout of your property, tree coverage, hills, wet spots, soil type, zoning laws and anything else that might impact your property.
Here are a few things to think about:
- Landscape design & installation
- Garden design (flower, vegetable, fairy, butterfly, Japanese, Zen, etc.)
- Outdoor kitchen
- Masonry (walkways, stairs, patios, wall)
- Carpentry (decks, stairs)
- Tree house
- Kid-friendly environment
- Outdoor lighting
- Water features (fountains, ponds & waterfalls)
- Fire pits, fire tables & fire places
- Pergolas & gazebos
We are known not only for our landscaping, but also for our superior masonry and outdoor kitchens.
