February 2nd marked the halfway point of winter and, of course, Groundhog Day.  Groundhogs all across Canada predicted that we will have an early spring, which means it’s time to start planning for your summer landscaping project!  Now is the perfect time to start thinking of your dream garden – and Elm Landscaping is here to help.

As much as we would love for perfect gardens to just “happen,” they are the result of careful planning that begins when there’s still snow of the ground.  We start the process at the drawing board.  Our landscape design experts will work with you every step of the way to make your dream a reality.  Maybe you have a point-by-point plan for your garden, or maybe you just have a spark of inspiration.  Either way, we start by getting the plan on paper and working it out from construction to planting to maintenance.

Maybe you have a point-by-point plan for your garden,
or maybe you just have a spark of inspiration.

We start the process with a conversation about initial concepts and turn those into scaled conceptual drawings that are full-color and of architectural quality.  You can feel confident that your plan meets your specifications, and will showcase your outdoor sanctuary.

Let’s get going!

If you want to work with some existing trees and shrubs, this is the best time to start pruning.  This will encourage healthy growth and keep your yard from looking over grown. Winter weeds are now starting to poke through as the snow begins to melt.  Now is the time to start spot-treating those pesky weeds and prevent future growth.
