Spring may still be a few weeks away, but it is not too early to begin thinking about your lawn and garden. Most importantly, you want to start planning on including some spring flowers to add color and beauty to your landscaping scene. Hues of blue, red, orange, pink and yellow can really brighten up a dull garden.
Winter can be harsh on your lawn and garden. Even your greenery can suffer and lose its color after so many snow storms and days of below freezing temperatures. But spring provides an excellent opportunity to inject some much needed life back into it. Azaleas, hyacinth, irises, lilacs, marigolds and petunias are popular species of spring flowers that come in a wide array of colors and sizes.
When planning out your garden and how you want your flowers to look, be sure to spread the colors around. Remember, a well-maintained lawn with seasonal colorful flowers provides curb appeal to your house. This is especially important if spring means putting your house up for sale. Nothing helps to sell a house better than seeing a well-groomed garden boasting with color from spring flowers.
But with so many flowers to choose from, you may be overwhelmed and not know which ones to choose. There are no rules when it comes to flower selection. Of course, you do not want to drown your garden in flowers. Place them along your walkway, include them in your flower boxes along the front windows or create a nice spot at the end of your driveway where you can showcase a colorful selection of sweet peas. Let seasonal flowers bring beauty and brilliancy to your lawn and garden.
