The Early Bird Gets the Bloom

Landscape MaintenanceYour landscape is probably one of the last things on your mind right now – except when you come home and realize how sad it looks when there are few things in bloom. When the first daffodils start to bloom and spring is in the air, that’s when most people start to think about how they want to redesign their landscape for the approaching warm weather. Whispering Springs Nursery has a tip for you on your landscape design this spring – start now!

Design Now, Plant Later

Now is the perfect time to plan your landscape renovation for the spring time. When most things in your landscape are dormant and have lost their leaves, you can easily see all of the space you have to work with and see the spaces where you need to add some more evergreen color. Start out by taking pictures of the areas that you want to redesign. Measure the width and depth of your planting beds, and take note of anything special that you’ll need to take into consideration while planting such as limits to the depth of root systems or the height of trees and bushes. Now would also be a great time to take soil samples and send the off to the local extension office for testing.

With all of this information at hand, you’ll be ready to choose the perfect plants for each of your beds. You’ll have plenty of time to research exactly what plants you can use that will grow best in your landscape. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to consult with you and show you options that are deer-resistant, grow well in shade, or love loamy soil.

If you’d rather not have the stress of trying to dig through mountains of information, go ahead and schedule your landscape design consultation with Whispering Springs Nursery in Jasper, GA. Booking early means that your landscape will be on the top of our list for spring planting!
