Spring has arrived and we’ve already begun to feel it here in Pennsylvania! Have you seen the daffodils lately?! This means it’s time to get outside and begin creating the perfect landscape for your home! As the weather continues to warm, your garden and grasses will continue to bud with new growth. Root’s Nurseries is ready to turn your yard into a relaxing outdoor oasis! As a trusted landscaper for Mt Joy and surrounding areas, we’ve put quite a bit of thought into landscape design. So, here are a few tips to consider when designing a new landscape:
Do the Research
Gather a few ideas and photos of your dream landscape you can show to your landscaper. Start online and look for some landscaping inspiration or find some examples of properties that you think are done well. This may help you in presenting our team with a good idea of what you’re looking for. Not sure what plants will grow best in the Mt Joy area? A landscaper at Root’s can answer those questions for you! Like to visit the library? There are an abundance of gardening and landscaping books out there that are beautifully illustrated and incredibly fun to look through too!
Plan a Clean-Up
The winter has no doubt left its mark on your yard with broken branches, bare patches and some additional cleanup that needs to take place. Here are some tasks you or a landscaper can perform:
- Carefully rake up all of the dead leaves, debris and pine cones that have gathered on your lawn over the last several months.
- If you notice any bare patches, loosen the surface and spread a mixture of grass seed and compost or fertilizer over the bare spot.
- You or your landscaper should apply a new layer of mulch to help your plants retain moisture; helping them to grow throughout the spring and summer.
Visualize Your Landscape
Setting things up in proper proportion is one of the most daunting tasks associated with designing the ideal home landscape. Your plants need to be proportionate to each other as well as to whatever plot they are being installed into. A trained, professional home landscaper from Root’s can step in here, take measurements and help you visualize the scope of your project and what the outcome should look like.
Consider the Color Scheme
Colors will be a huge part of your landscape design. Do you or a family member have a favorite color you’d like to include? Tell your landscaper! This can be a great starting point and the experts at Root’s can help build from there.
