Yes many of you are asking the question: Will we get an early spring this year? Sure does feel like it 🙂 Especially with the warm temps we have been experiencing in New England for much of January and February. But we all know that March can sometimes surprise us so we still have a few more weeks to go. At least we know that this year it should melt quickly since we have not had the heavy accumulating 4-6 foot snow banks like in some winters.
The official first day of spring is March 20th. The weather recently has been unseasonably mild so it’s allowing people to walk around and assess their yards earlier this year versus being under snow like the last few seasons.Trees are already budding out and bulbs are starting to pop up in sunny spots too.
Before you know it we will be complaining that it’s too warm and have to turn on our air conditioners but that’s New England weather. For some landscaping tips Check out our latest spring newsletter 2020 (click to open up PDF)
Reminder for all of our existing clients, your spring landscape packages were sent out in early February for maintenance renewals and signups. Right now if the weather remains snow free, our crews will be starting cleanups, prunings and mulching in early March and continuing into April. If you have not sent in your form yet or need to get an estimate on other projects please contact our office. It’s not too late to get on our early schedule before busy spring! 860-228-3915
Got a larger project or landscape renovation you are looking at for 2020? We are already booking appointments about 1-2 weeks out at this point for spring projects like concrete paver patios, walks, and retaining walls while snow free. Already installed 2 patios and working an a few walkways next week so don’t wait until it’s warm out to start planning and budgeting. Take advantage of the more flexible scheduling before busy spring.
Keeping this in mind, I decided to list below some of the most popular services/topics that are of interest each spring to our clients and helpful links to info and videos. Hopefully you can use the information to get a jump start on your landscape once any snow melts. If you have any additional questions give us a call if we can assist you or point you in the right direction. We can prune, edge and mulch your landscape plantings so that you can enjoy your time outdoors this spring!
