Making your home into a beautiful retreat doesn’t have to be a chore. Spending time outdoors is a therapeutic way to blow off the winter dust and gain new hope for the promises of spring and summer. “But where do I start?” you say. If you are reading this, you obviously figured out how to use technology so let me give you a few links to get your imagination flowing.
We suggest that you get your Landscaping Foundation in place first before you start planting. Coming out of a difficult winter as we have just experienced, remember to account for places to push or throw snow as you gather ideas. Keep your delicate structure plantings back at least 5 feet from driveways, and if possible keep a grass buffer between drives and plantings so you can store snow without destroying your landscaping. While driveway edgings seem pretty, if you enclose the whole driveway, you are bound to be doing landscape repair in the spring. If you don’t care to do any hardscaping, consider using raised flower beds to keep your landscaping three dimensional.
Try researching some Flower Garden Designs online. These pictures are a great start to get the creative juices flowing.
Where ever you start, remember to slow down a bit and enjoy your time outdoors!
