Plan ahead for Spring – It is important to start now!

January is a great time to plan for spring. It may seem like spring is still a distant thought, but this is the time to start discussing any changes you want to make with your landscape. It may be time to clear away some older trees to make room for new ones. Or perhaps a new vegetable garden has been on your mind for some time now. No matter what you would like to do in 2017, now is the time to plan.

With all of the planning and logistics that go into a successful landscape project it is important to start talking to your contractors now. As I’m sure everyone has noticed, the construction around town has reached a peak. Because of this, contractors are weeks and months out on new projects so it’s important to get onto their schedules as soon as possible. It’s also very important to plan early so you will have the best selection of trees and shrubs from the nurseries in the spring. The best selection of plant material is available in the spring. Waiting until summer or fall to move forward on a project may limit the quality and quantity of plants available to make your landscape their new residence.

Feel free to schedule a time to meet with one of our Arborists today so we can help guide you on decisions for spring. The key to completing a quality project is good planning.
