You want to start spring out right, it gets the excitement started to want to be out in your yard. It is bulb heavy if you plan early you can have spring bulbs blooming for up to three months. Starting with crocus and small ephemeral bulbs, moving on to daffodils, tulips, allium, hyacinth, there are a lot of bulbs that are underused. If you plan ahead and plant in fall it can really add to the spring garden!


All the great perennials and annual color start appearing in the summer. Hydrangeas and sedums are a few of our favorites that add great color to the garden, these beauties thrive in the summer heat and bloom nearly nonstop into the fall.


Have structure for the snow, evergreens give your garden some life as well as interesting bark and things like grasses and texture come into play. Built structures like pergolas, and fireplaces are important during this time, they are there to provide a back drop when all the living plants are gone
