It’s Never Too Early to Start Thinking Spring

Snow is gone. Days are getting longer. Temperatures are warming. That can only mean one thing: spring is coming. Is your landscape ready?

Unless you’ve already planted, edged, mulched, pruned, and removed dead plant material, your landscape probably isn’t prepared to flourish this growing season. And even if your landscape is prepared, you can always make it more dynamic and exciting.

This year, there are lots of fun, emerging gardening trends that we’re seeing integrated into outdoor landscapes. One of our favorites is edible plants. These include dwarf blueberries, thornless raspberries, cherries, and perhaps the most popular: a six-in-one apple tree that grows six different varieties of apples on the same tree.

As you’re preparing your landscape for the spring season, make sure that you’re properly taking care of your plants. One thing we often come across is people accidently pruning off healthy blooms. Many times, flowers will bloom on the previous year’s growth, so it’s always best to wait for blooms to start before doing any pruning.
