With about a month to go until the official start of spring, we are slowly seeing signs of winter ending. It is staying light out longer in the evenings, the soil in the ground is starting to warm up, buds are getting ready to bloom and before long, we will be seeing spring garden landscape come to life.
While winter is thawing and spring is showing promising signs of arriving early, this is a good time to plan ahead for your spring garden landscape. Winter shows the true backbone of your property. It allows you to see the outline of your space and gives you a clean slate. When looking at the bare landscape of your yard, you can envision the spaces you want to create and the areas you would like to fill. It is a good time to plan your spring garden landscape design. Take this time to plan for changes you would like to see come to life this year. It is a good time to develop your new year and spring cleaning projects. Working with a designer or landscape architect helps maximize the use of your property and budget. It helps to make sure you get the most out of your time, energy and money. Working with a professional and planning ahead help to maximize your chances for success.
Planning For A Spring Garden Landscape Design
When it comes to spring garden landscaping, there are many factors to consider. Planning ahead is key. Spring bulbs should be planted in the Fall season beforehand, before the ground freezes. That way, once winter passes, your spring flowers will begin to bloom, bringing bursts of color into your yard. Choosing a color scheme to stick to beforehand is a good place to start. Choosing flowers, plant materials and specimens for certain parts of your property takes proper planning. As well as a well rounded base of knowledge for which plants will thrive in certain conditions. Observe the light and shadows that hit your property. Observe the water and conditions that surround your planting areas. To ensure a thriving and healthy garden, it starts with planning the proper areas and providing the best conditions.
They say without winter, spring would not be so pleasant. Winter is a reminder every year of all the good that is to come. It is the power and resilience of mother nature. The patience of waiting and trusting that the spring garden landscape will return. It is a good mantra to keep in mind to make it through these last few lingering weeks of winter.
