Yes many of you are probably asking the question: When will spring get here already? I know I am 🙂

Well, the official first day of spring was March 20th even though it feels like February this week! But the weather will soon be more seasonal this weekend and should start to allow people to walk around and assess their yards and landscapes in the next week or two. Before you know it we will be complaining that it’s too warm and have to turn on our ACs but that’s New England weather for ya.  Here is an interesting article I read this past week on getting started: Three Steps to Assess Your Landscape by Monique Allen.

Our crews will be starting cleanups, prunings and mulching the first week of April. If you have not sent in your form yet or need to get an estimate on other projects please contact our office. We are currently booking appointments about 2-3 weeks out at this point.


Keeping this in mind, I decided to list some of the most popular services/topics that are of interest each spring to our clients. Hopefully you can use the information to get a jump start on your landscape once the 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, weed, edge and mulch your landscape plantings so that you can enjoy your time outdoors this spring!
