We are all enduring the dog days of winter right now. Freezing, bone chilling
temperatures, snow up to our knees and of course Covid restrictions. This weather
is good for our environment as the prolonged sub-zero temps help to control
invasive insect species and allows our native plant species to have their dormant
cycle just as they have evolved to do.
However, spring is not far off!! It may seem so right now but before long the thaw
will come, bulbs will sprout, leaves will reappear, and temperatures will be much
more outdoor activity friendly. So now is the time to start thinking about your own
gardens and patio space. Are you thinking of sprucing it up a bit? Maybe some new
plant material, an expansion of an existing garden or a complete revamp—now is
the time to plan for that. What kind of annuals do you want to plant? Do you want to
change up the colour scheme? Make the patio cozier? If you are thinking of any of
those or other things, planning now is essential for you to have your space ready to
enjoy for the entire season.
If you’re not sure where to start, please just feel free to contact me at Leslie’s
Landscapes and I can help you realize your yard/garden space dreams for the
warmer seasons of 2022. Who wouldn’t like to see some bright, fresh colour after a
long cold winter? I know I would, and I am already planning how I will be
rearranging my gardens and what plants I’ll be using. You should be as well.
Hope to talk soon and let me help you realize your greenspace vision for 2022~
